Popular businessman and socialite Emeka Okonkwo, known as E-Money, has strongly denied allegations of having an affair with the wife of the late Nollywood actor JohnPaul Odonwodo, popularly known as Junior Pope.

Junior Pope tragically lost his life last month when a boat he was on capsized on the Anam River in Anambra State while returning from a filming location, along with three others.

Following his death, rumors circulated online, suggesting a connection between E-Money and Junior Pope’s demise, alleging an affair with the late actor’s wife.


In response, E-Money has vowed to take legal action against those spreading these false accusations. He took to Instagram, calling on Nigerians to help identify those responsible for the damaging claims.

E-Money wrote, “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.
