The woman made this claim during the Firdau Prayer held in honor of the late thespian on Monday, May 22nd, 2023, in Lagos State.

Meanwhile, Nollywood actress, Adunni Ade has broken her silence after being publicly accused of owing her late colleague, Murphy Afolabi, N250,000.
It was earlier reported that the burial committee of the late Murphy Afolabi called out Adunni Ade over the alleged debt.
During the 8-day Firdau Prayer held in his honor, some Islamic clerics claiming to be members of the burial committee announced that Adunni Ade owed the deceased N250,000 and urged her to refund it.
They claimed that Murphy had sent the money to Adunni Ade as payment for a role in his upcoming movie before his sudden death.
Finally breaking her silence on the debt allegations through a statement issued by her team, Adunni Ade debunked the reports of being indebted to the late actor.
According to her, Murphy Afolabi had contacted her for a job in 2021 and had paid her the sum of N150,000.
However, she was unable to deliver the job due to the death of her brother and refunded the actor his money when he tried to make another agreement with her.
To support her claims, Adunni shared screenshots of her bank statement, which showed that she received N150,000 from Murphy in July 2021 and how she sent the money back to him in October 2021.
