Jumoke Aderounmu was not sick, she died in her sleep – Her brother Adeola Aderounmu discloses

Adeola, the brother of the late movie actress Jumoke Aderounmu, has stated that his sister passed away peacefully in her sleep and was not suffering from any illness as speculated.

Jumoke, renowned for her portrayal of Esther in Funke Akindele’s “Jenifa’s Diary” series, tragically passed away on April 6th.

In an interview with Saturday Beats, Adeola revealed that before her untimely demise, the deceased had plans to relocate to the United Kingdom.

Adeola mentioned that Jumoke expressed a desire to relocate to the UK due to her frustration over not receiving enough movie roles.

When asked why he did not reach out privately to Funke Akindele, instead of bashing her online for allegedly not helping the deceased in her time of need, he stated that he did not have her number. His words:

“I did not reach out to her (Funke), because I don’t have her phone number, and I am not close to her. But, my sister had her number, and even sent another actress, Paschaline Alex to her, all to no avail.

“She (Funke) stopped calling her for jobs. Jumoke tried to know why because she wanted to retrace her steps if she had committed any offence.”

He reiterated that only two of her colleagues, Rita Dominic and Tayo Sobola helped Jumoke in her time of need.

Describing his sister as an introvert, Adeola said:

“She was an introvert, and usually kept to herself. She was actually not sick. She just died in her sleep.”

He added that though Jumoke had been buried and the family would organise a tribute event in a church on the 40th day after her death.
