E-Money Pledges to Nurture Children of Junior Pope

Emeka Okonkwo, the businessman better known as E-Money, has committed to look after the children of Junior Pope, the famous actor.

Pope died last Wednesday after falling into the River Niger in Asaba, Delta state, while on his way to a movie shoot.

He died along with four other crew members in the boat tragedy.

In an Instagram post on Wednesday, E-money reflected on his moments with Pope. He also posted a video of their several meetings.

He stated that the actor’s death “left a resounding void in not only him, but also across Africa and beyond.”

The business mogul further stated that he will honor Pope’s final words by caring for his children “as you would have wished”.

“It has been one week since you departed from this world, leaving behind a profound sense of loss that reverberates not only among us but also across Africa and beyond. Your presence as both a friend and a brother is deeply missed, JP,” he wrote.

“The weight of your absence bears heavily upon our hearts, yet we draw comfort from the belief that God will grant us the resilience to carry forward and uphold the legacy you entrusted to us.

“We tenderly remember your final words in the boat “na only me dem born, I get 3 children na I go raise them” and we solely commit to honoring that vow. Your children now find solace in the embrace of the Okonkwo family and we, as members of that family, pledge to nurture them as you would have wished.

“Your absence leaves a palpable void, JP, and your memory will forever be held dear. Rest peacefully, knowing that you are deeply cherished and may God’s blessings encompass your soul, your family and hold you in their hearts.”
