Nollywood Actress, Adunni Ade Debunks Allegation Of Owing Late Colleague, Narrates Story

On Tuesday, Popular Nollywood Actress, Adunni Ade took to her official Instagram page to share a statement signed by her lawyer debunking an allegation made by a Muslim cleric about her.

A cleric on Monday, called out the Adunni Ade and other actors for owing late colleague, Murphy Afolabi. He alleged that the actress was owing Murphy the sum of N250,000 before he died.

However, Adunni Ade quickly went online to share a statement signed by her lawyer with screenshot of her bank statement narrating how the incident took place.

Her statement reads;

“Sometimes in July 2021, the late Mr. Murphy Afolabi reached out to me, requiring my services for a movie production. He appealed to me stating that it was a self funded production that he couldn’t afford my professional fee, but that he would need my moral support. I asked how many scenes and duration expected of me on set. He said 10 scenes and that I would spend one day. He offered to ‘fuel my car’ as honorarium, which payment was made on 02 July 2021 for N150,000.

“Unfortunately, on 11 July 2021 shortly before the commencement of the production, I lost my younger brother. I contacted Mr. Murphy Afolabi a few days afterwards to request for his bank account details, to send him a refund, as I would be travelling to the United States for my younger brother’s funeral, and to spend
time with the rest of my family.

“He insisted I held on to the money while he figured out whether to move the shoot forward or contact me for another one.

“I returned to Lagos end of September 2021 and waited for his call. Mr. Murphy Afolabi contacted me 08 October 2021 and said he wanted to start a new job soon and needed me for 4 days, playing the lead but for the same amount of N150,000 which he had paid in July. I respectfully declined, requested for his bank account
details and transferred to his bank account the full refund of N150,000 on the same day, 08 October 2021.” She wrote.
