Nigerian billionaire businessman, Emeka Okonkwo better known as E-Money has pledged to nurture the children of his late friend, actor Pope Odonwodo, AKA Junior Pope, DAILY SUN reports.

Taking to his Instagram page, he noted how it has been one week since the actor departed from this world, leaving behind a profound sense of loss that reverberates in Africa and beyond.

He added that Jnr Pope’s presence as a friend and brother is deeply missed.

Recalling Junior Pope’s last words on the boat where he said he was going to take care of his 3 kids, E-Money vowed that he and his family would help nurture the kids as he 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. 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’ve entrusted to us. We tenderly remember your final words on the boat, “NA ONLY ME DEM BORN I GET 3 CHILDREN NA ME GO RAISE THEM,” and we solemnly commit to honouring 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 all who hold you in their hearts.

It would be recalled on Wednesday, April 10 Junior Pope died after drowning while returning from a movie location with his colleagues in a boat at Anam River in Anambra State.

The actor was said to have woken up briefly and was taken to the Water Shrine for some cleansing after which he was taken to the hospital, where he eventually gave up.
