Speaking during the late actress’ wake-keep at her residence, Henrietta’s younger brother, Krisvosa, who was her manager, debunked media reports that she ‘slumped’ at home and was rushed to R-Jolad Hospital in the Bariga area of Lagos state.

Krisvosa said his sister who has since been buried, fell seriously ill two weeks ago and was taken to the said hospital and had returned home before the sickness relapsed.

“It all started two weeks ago. Apparently, she was diabetic and was managing the ailment. She fell seriously ill two weeks ago and we took her to the hospital and where she was admitted for a few days. She came back home doing very fine.

“She showed great sign of recovery and everybody was happy that the storm was over. Few days after, the sickness relapsed and we took her back to the hospital. She was admitted for the second time and died two days after. She died around 9 am on Monday morning,” Krisvosa said.

  3. I think being fat s a nature. N as well, we also need 2 monitoring every thing we eat as well. I think, I prefer taking fruit after eating 2 help digestion of d food we eat. But 2 frank with u, hw many Nigeria can afford 3 meal square not 2 talk of eating fruit after meal every day. That s what our government has lead us to in dis nation. Let look as inflation is affecting all our goods 2day. I think b4 a government will remove subsidy, he should AV provide some basic amenities, 4 d standard of living. But, look @ now d subsidy s removed n d standard of living s stagnant. No increment in salary, everythings in d market place s hard 2 buy.
