It’s no longer news that actor Ajirebi Kayode Olasehinde, popularly known as Pa James, lost his home located in Oke Isagun community of Oke Odo LGA in Lagos after the veteran’s home was destroyed by flooded after heavy rainfall.
It’s understood the heavy downpour forced a canal to overflow and release its content into the Pa James’ property.
According to reports, actress Kemi Korede announced in an Instagram post, that Funke Akindele had gifted Pa James a new home. She wrote:
“On behalf of PA JAMES, I Want to say Big thank you to @funkejenifaakindele for the new apartment given to him by you. God bless you so much for your good heart. your type is so rare..you are a gem. Almighty God will continue to make way for you where there seems to be no way.”
Amebo Book was tipped that it was Funke Akindele who instructed that the post be taken down as the actress helps people quietly and prefers it never makes social media.
In another post, Kemi was thankful to all those who showed the actor love and support. She stated, “To all that had supported pa James we say a big thank you…
Our colleagues that came all out to help we say thank you and God bless you all”
If you recall Pa James’ son, Samuel Ajirebi, released photos of the sorry state of his dad’s home.
“Seriously sad right now, I get to think at times that, are we sure we have a government in this country?
“Look at what I met on going to visit my family today, a flooded house due to the overflowing canal behind our street.
To make matters worse, no one was at home save my dad, so the old man and I had to be saving properties and scooping water out of the house!
“This year makes it ten years of the repeated and consistent occurrence of this with severe damages done annually to properties, at times leading to temporary displacement!
“Letters have been written, appearances made, press releases written, still no significant step was taken by the government to channel the overrunning canal. “We need governmental intervention in Oke Isagun Community of Oke Odo LGA.
‘’We lose properties! We lose rest whenever we see rain signs! Tonight is going to be a partial prayer moment for families because it must not rain tonight…. No house for us to sleep in anymore!
“This is sad and heartbreaking”.
