According to Jide, Funke Akindele reached out to him to speak with the late Jumoke.

In his words;

“I really don’t feel like saying anything about this but I need to let the world know that Aunty Funke called me to ask of Jumoke because she knows we were cool. She insisted I call her to be sure she was fine. I did, we spoke at length and I complained about her isolating herself. May her soul Rest In Peace and May God forgive us all.”
