Angela Okorie, the actress, has slammed Zubby Michael, the actor, for gifting money to the family of Junior Pope “in public”.


Pope passed away in April after a boat accident on the River Niger in Asaba, Delta state.

He was buried on Friday in Nsukka, Igbo-Etiti LGA in Enugu state. A funeral service was held at Saint Peter’s Catholic Church, Ukehe.

Michael, in a now-viral video, is seen handing over bundles of naira notes to Pope’s family during a condolence visit.


Reacting to the video via her Instagram story, Okorie berated Michael for allegedly donating “on camera”.

She claimed her colleague planted the camera to record his charity, adding that he could have given Pope’s family the cash “in private”.

The actress argued that the burial of a young person is not the right place to flaunt cash.


“Zubby, if you really wanted to give money to Junior Pope’s family, you for give them quietly,” she wrote in Pidgin English.

“The way I dey take give you that year codedly nobody go know. You carry camera plant make dem dey video you dey give bundle of money to JP family. We all know you with probably, just get out abeg.

“Zubby, na young person die. The showcase of money was not necessary. But as a local boy that you are, you do not have sense. You do not know where to do show and where to behave well. Abi you get money pass all the dignitaries wey come there?”


Peter Obi, the Labour Party (LP) 2023 presidential candidate, recently visited Pope’s family to pay his respects.
