The renown Nigerian actress, Kate Henshaw lost properties worth millions of naira as fire gutted her house in Lekki.
Kate Henshaw lost her Lekki home to fire recently. She is a popular and highly admired Nigerian/Nollywood actress. In 2008 she won the Africa Movie Academy Award for Best Actress in a Leading Role.
Speaking to City People Magazine, she said that she lost everything in the house in the fire incident. Kate Henshaw disclosed that;
It is true. The house got burnt and I lost everything. I really don’t know what happened because I was here on the ‘Do Good’ set, I was filming, and was about to have lunch when my nanny called me and was like “madam fire”. I told her to get people to throw water on it and didn’t even know it was like a big fire. I immediately got up and by the time I turned into the street before mine, I could see the sky was black. I got there and there were people everywhere and nobody could get in. Because the first thing about fire is the smoke, its going to make it totally impossible to get in, and it could kill you. And my next door neighbour was having his daughter’s birthday and there were children there, that was IK Osakioduwa, he happens to be my next door neighbour, and he had sent a message to all radio stations about the fire.
I called the fire service for over 2 hours and there was no response, by the time they came everything had gone. The house was razed completely. But I am talking to you now, and I am glad to be alive. Winning this award further goes to show that as long as there is life, you can hope for tomorrow.
The popular and multi-award winning actress said she is still thankful that her life was spared in the incident. Her numerous fans in Nigeria and beyond are hoping Kate Henshaw recovers from the shock and loss soon.
