Omotola And Our "Hellish" Country!

Nollywood actress, singer, and former model, Omotola Jalade-Ekeinde, has taken to social media to reveal how she lost her cousin in the United Kingdom to complications from a kidney transplant.

The thespian who said that the health system in the United Kingdom failed her cousin noted that he couldn’t get proper medical care because the hospitals were focused on Coronavirus and help didn’t get to him fast enough.

Omotola’s post on Twitter read: “I lost a dear cousin yesterday in London. I am hurting. He didn’t have Covid-19 but died from a kidney transplant complication.

“He could not get proper healthcare because the Hospitals were focused on Coronavirus and help didn’t get to him fast enough. How sad.

“Jalad is gone. He died alone. Jalad was too loved to die alone. The health system in the UK failed him,” she added.

Omotola’s announcement comes after music executive cum R&B singer, Banky W, berated state governors for relaxing COVID-19 lockdown directives to enable Christians carry out their religious obligations during the Easter period.

The singer took to his Twitter page on Friday to question why the governors, who before now banned public gatherings as part of measures to curb the spread of COVID-19 in their states, would decide to relax restrictions when recorded infections continue to increase by the day.

Banky W who rhetorically asked if the governors had an agreement with the COVID-19 disease also wondered whether the ravaging virus will go on holiday too to celebrate Easter.
