E-Money, Kcee offer to take care of Jnr Pope’s children

Renowned Nigerian singer, Kingsley Chinweike Okonkwo, widely known as Kcee, has pledged alongside his brother, Emeka Okonkwo, popularly known as E-Money, to take responsibility for the children of the late Nollywood actor Junior Pope until they reach an age where they can fend for themselves.

Kcee made this commitment during the actor’s funeral in Ukehe, Nsukka, Enugu State, on Friday.

Kcee said, “On behalf of my brother, E-Money and our friends, I want to say sorry to the family. Junior Pope is a blessing to this generation. He is somebody that we will never forget in this generation.

“My brother is the godfather of his first son. The friendship we have with Junior Pope has been for ages. When the unfortunate incident happened, my brother said to me that we were going to take up responsibility for his three sons till they were grown.

“But we can’t do that without the support of the family. So we are saying it openly to the family, we are ready to take care of the three kids to any level they want till they are grown to cater for themselves. We will take care of their education, feeding, clothing, and holidays. We are not doing it to show off but to honour our friend’s dying wish for a better life for his children. And we took it upon ourselves that we are going to support this family to train these children.”

Nollywood actor Junior Pope tragically passed away on April 10, 2024, along with three others, after their boat capsized on the Anam River in Anambra State.

They were returning from a film location at the time of the accident.
