Pa James denies getting a new house from Funke Akindele (Video)

Veteran Nollywood actor, Kayode Ajirebi professionally known as Pa James has debunked news that he was gifted a house by Funke Akindele after he lost his home to the Lagos flood.

On the 7th of july 2020, Pa James cried out for help after flood had taken over his house and soaked some of his belongings.

Owing to Actress Oluwakemi Adetoro Ojo’s post that Funke came to Pa James rescue, multiple media outlets claimed that Funke Akindele gifted a house to the actor.

According to Pa James, such claim is nothing but fake news, as no one bought a house for him. He made this known in a recent video recorded by Kunle Afod.

In the video, the veteran actor debunked the news that Funke Akindele bought him a house, though he went on to thank those who have helped him in this trying time.

In the video, Pa James spoke in Yoruba saying;

God will keep you for helping me, i didn’t know people cared about me like this….I can’t thank you enough…for doing this to me while i am alive….to my fellow actors, you impressed me…..and thank you to Funke AKindele, i won’t lie she did me well….but i need to clear the air on the reports that she bought me a house,,,while passing on my street this morning, some area boys stopped me and hailed me saying they will visit me in the house Funke Akindele built for me…..and i was shocked….Funke only paid for an apartment for me to rent for the meantime……and i am truly grateful but she didn’t build me a house….”
