The world of Nollywood was once again thrown into mourning earlier today after news of the death of actress, Henrietta Kosoko broke. Until her death in Bariga, Lagos this morning, Henrietta was married to veteran actor, Jide Kosoko.
On Friday, January 30, 2015, in Abeokuta, Henrietta was involved in a ghastly car crash which kept her bed-ridden for close to two weeks. After the ordeal, the actress granted soft-sell magazine, Encomium an interview which turned out to be her last major interview before death.
Read excerpts from the interview below:
How are you feeling now?
I give glory to God. I am getting better, I am much better now. I have a mark on my forehead as a result of the injury I sustained.
How and when did it happen?
Did the car or its brake have any fault before you travelled?
When you want to travel, it is normal to do a check up, service the car and all that. I took the car to Ladipo some days before I travelled. I even took it to one Total petrol station for brake oil. The car was sound, it was okay before I travelled. I changed some parts at Ladipo. It didn’t give any faulty sign at all. It didn’t have any problem before I travelled.
Who took you to the hospital?
I don’t know them. They were just good Samaritans. A police officer also assisted. His name is Taiwo.
What lessons did you learn from your ordeal?
I have learnt never to travel alone. If we were two or more, things wouldn’t have ended up this way.
What is the state of the car?
I have not even seen it. My brothers brought it back home from Abeokuta.
How much did you spend while in the hospital?
I thank God for saving me. I thank God for another opportunity to be alive. I can’t count the cost. We spent money every day. Counting it is like counting your blessings.
