Bidemi Kosoko, a renowned Nollywood actress, has suffered a devastating loss as her apartment was unfortunately engulfed in flames in her absence.

Her elder sister, Shola Kosoko, took to her Instagram page to share the heart-wrenching news and also posted videos showing the extent of the damage caused by the fire outbreak.

It was revealed by Shola that their family had a tradition of gathering at their father, Jide Kosoko’s home on Boxing Day, which fell on the 26th of December.

This day was usually dedicated to exchanging and unwrapping gifts together as a family.

However, their joyous occasion was abruptly interrupted when they received a distressing call informing them that both Bidemi’s apartment and their neighbor’s residence were on fire.

Shola Kosoko wrote:

“We thank God for his faithfulness, love, and prosperity in our lives in the year 2023. It has become a tradition in my family to spend the 26th of December which is Boxing Day at our daddy’s place, where we all exchange and unwrap our gifts.

“So, this year, we decided to record the activities because it’s always fun merrying together with family. So Bidemi Kosoko, her husband, kids, and her domestic staff were all at our daddy’s residence, so her apartment was locked up.

“In the middle of our merriment, we received an alarming call that Bidemi’s apartment was on fire as well as her neighbor’s apartment.

“In fact, Myself, my dad and Bidemi were getting ready to attend another important event before we received the call. And what we got was what happened in the video.

“We were on different video calls watching the scenario, how the firefighter arrived, how her apartment was forced open, and how they eventually put off the fire.

“Thanks to Bidemi’s friend, Taiwo Lawal, and her husband who stay in the same estate and rushed there to assist. People in the neighborhood showed love and support to ensure the fire was put out.

“We appreciate you all for your show of love and kindness. Such a thing will not happen to anyone again I pray.

“In all, we are thankful to God for sparing our lives as no one was caught in the fire. We shall witness the year 2024 in peace and joy.

“Please thank God for us. In all, we give THANKS TO HIM.”
