Actor Nosa Rex kicks against claim he used Junior Pope’s death for skit

Published

Nosa Rex, the Nollywood actor, has dismissed a claim by actress Ruby Orjiakor that he used Junior Pope’s boat mishap for a skit.

Pope passed away on April 10 after a boat accident on the River Niger in Asaba, Delta state. On May 17, he was buried in Nsukka, Igbo-Etiti LGA in Enugu state.

Last Sunday, a video where a director asked Rex to dive into a river without a life jacket at a movie set went viral.

In the footage, the actor appeared to be challenging the movie director who demanded the retrieval of a treasure inside the river.

Rex also argued that the scene was not in the script. He was later captured fighting for his life after he dived into the water.

The skit attracted criticism towards Rex with Orjiakor claiming the actor created the content to mock Pope’s death.

She also alleged that Adanma Luke, producer of the movie Pope was supposed to feature, is not remorseful about his death.

’I came to pray specifically for you super stat (Akpa Swag) Your Legacy will never be forgotten. I also want to let you know that Baba Rex your own man has started using what happened to you as content. Everybody dey find their belle, no one cares, if only you listened to me,” she wrote.

“Again, @adanmaluke instead of feeling guilty for what happened to you and others, she was busy telling the whole world how you were begging her for jobs. I believe you can now understand better how wicked the world is.

“May the souls of all the faithful departed through the mercy of Christ.”

Rihanna, the award-winning Barbadian music star, has addressed rumours circulating that she is expecting her third child.

There have been speculations that the ‘Man Down’ hitmaker was pregnant for the third time in three years for A$AP Rocky, her partner.

She said she wants to have as many kids as God wants, adding that she is hoping for a daughter.

“As many as God wants me to have. I do not know what God wants, but I would go for more than two. I would try for my girl. But of course if it is another boy, it is another boy,” she said.

DJ Cuppy, the Nigerian disc jockey, says she is applying to study for another academic degree.

The celebrity DJ, the daughter of billionaire businessman Femi Otedola, recently took to Instagram to reveal that she “loves learning”.

Cuppy said after performing at a show, it dawned on her to pursue another academic degree.

“So, I am at home at the moment. I finished a DJ gig and I started working on an application for something pretty important. And I have decided to go back to school. I already have three degrees but I love learning,” she said.

“The university I am applying to, obviously is very academically and their application is pretty rigorous. And I just felt quite discouraged. I am 31 now. My brain does not work like it needs to. I was looking at the prerequisite readings and I was like how am I going to do this. And I realised I have done it before I can do it again.”

Born Florence Otedola, the entertainer also shared a copy of her certificate on social media.

In October 2021, the singer commenced her master’s degree programme in African Studies at Oxford University.

Cuppy completed her thesis which is the required academic research work the following year. She said although she did not get merit or distinction, she is glad to have passed the thesis.

Last year, Cuppy bagged her third degree and second master’s (MSc) from the University of Oxford, England.
