Nigerian billionaire businessman, Emeka Okonkwo, famously known as E-money has vowed to assume full responsibility for raising his children as if they were his own.

Recall that Junior Pope posted a video on social media and captioned it, saying he was crossing the Niger River without a life jacket to get to the movie set.

Before the mishap, Junior Pope recorded a video in which he begged the boat driver to slow down and remember that he was a man with obligations at home.

Sadly, he did not survive the tragedy; he left behind a wife and three small boys.

E-money pledged to look after Jnr. Pope’s remaining children, to treat them like his own kids and to assume responsibility for them.

In his words;

“It has been one week since you departed from this world, leaving behind a profound sense of loss that reverberates not only among us but also across Africa and beyond. Your presence, as both a friend and a brother, is deeply missed, JP. The weight of your absence bears heavily upon our hearts, yet we draw comfort from the belief that God will grant us the resilience to carry forward and uphold the legacy you’ve entrusted to us. We tenderly remember your final words on the boat, “NA ONLY ME DEM BORN I GET 3 CHILDREN NA ME GO RAISE THEM,” and we solemnly commit to honoring that vow. Your children now find solace in the embrace of the Okonkwo family, and we, as members of that family, pledge to nurture them as you would have wished. Your absence leaves a palpable void, JP, and your memory will forever be held dear. Rest peacefully, knowing that you are deeply cherished, and may God’s blessings encompass your soul, your family, and all who hold you in their hearts. 🙏”
