Veteran Nollywood actor, Pa James, was recently the subject of discussion on social media after his home was taken over flood for the umpteenth time.
The film star’s residence which is located in Oke Isagun community of Oke Odo LGA in Lagos state had been sacked by flood and from photos shared on social media, Pa James’ house looked like a small river.
But the good news, which was shared on social media by actress, Kemi Korede, revealed actress Funke Akindele had given the veteran actor a new apartment.
Kemi Korede had fans to thank Funke for her lovely gesture.
In her words; “On behalf of PA JAMES, I Want to say Big thank you to @funkejenifaakindele for the new apartment given to him by you. God bless you so much for your good heart. your type is so rare..you are a gem. Almighty God will continue to make way for you where dier seems to be no way.”
Recall that Pa James’ son, Samuel had gone to social media in 2019 to call on government to come to their aid, saying that it is the 10th time his father’s residence was overrun with flood due to heavy rainfalls.
In the Instagram post, he wrote: “This year makes it ten years of repeated and consistent occurrence of this with severe damages done annually to properties, at times leading to temporary displacement! Letters have been written, TV appearances made, press releases written, still no significant step taken by the government to channel the overrunning canal.
“This is not a sympathy plea for anything, but a call to the state and local government authorities of Lagos ( @akinwunmiambode and @jidesanwoolu ) Oke Odo LGA respectively to please wake up to your responsibility and stop making citizens suffer in neglect! We need governmental intervention in Oke Isagun Community of Oke Odo LGA! We lose properties! We lose rest whenever we see rain signs! Tonight is going to be a partial prayer moment for families, because it must not rain tonight… No house for us to sleep in anymore!
