E-Money threatens lawsuit over cheating allegations with Junior Pope’s wife


The businessman Emeka Okonkwo, best known by his stage as E-Money, has responded to claims that he had an affair with the late actor Junior Pope’s wife.

Pope passed away on April 10 while travelling to a filming location in Asaba, Delta state, by means of the River Niger.

E-Money honoured Pope on April 17 and promised to look after the actor’s kids.

A Facebook influencer recently posted a video in which she accused E-Money of having an affair with Pope’s widow and implied that the actor’s death may have been related to him.

E-Money responded on Instagram by reposting the accusatory video and another with comparable claims, urging Nigerians to assist in identifying the people spreading false information.

He also threatened to sue the bloggers and influencers who were disseminating these falsehoods.

“It has come to my attention that some individuals are spreading damaging and false information about my relationship with my late brother, Junior Pope, and his family during this difficult time of mourning. These actions show a complete lack of respect for the memory of the deceased and are deeply hurtful to our grieving family,” he wrote.

“I cannot fold my hands and allow this heinous act to continue without consequence. I am committed to identifying these unscrupulous individuals and ensuring they are held accountable. It is imperative that we clean up our social media space and let the law take its rightful course. Furthermore, bloggers disseminating this information without proper investigation and confirmation will also not be spared in this bid for justice.

“Anyone with credible information that can assist the authorities in apprehending these two women responsible for this malicious character assassination, should please come forward. Your help will not only bring justice but is highly appreciated. Enough is enough!”
