In an interview with The Point, Kosoko narrates what actually led to her death saying, "Forget all those things you heard. She was ill. She died of complications that arose from diabetes."

He also disclosed friends and colleagues stood by him during the ordeal.

"Honestly, my family, friends and colleagues stood by me and I appreciate that."

Talking about Kemi Olunloyo's ritualistic allegations, "Of course, you will always have one or two persons, who would say one or two negative things.

But you see, in my life, I have fought so many battles and I have won all. It is only people who want to be crushed that would confront me in war, because the Almighty God has His plans for me. It is just quite unfortunate that these things are happening to me, but I would still thank the Almighty God for everything. There are reasons for everything and I want to believe that it is natural."

When asked if he’ll be taking a new wife, he said, "If at this age, I still think of taking a wife, when I have over a dozen children, it is madness. On January 12, I will be 63. I am taking care of some of the children, while others are now adults. She left and left me with two teenagers."


Olunloyo fondly known as Snitchlady, took to social media last year to accuse Kosoko of using his late wives for money rituals.

Although Olunloyo has since apologised to Kosoko, the stigma seems have settled around the actor who noted that people are counting his losses.
