Meanwhile, CorrectNG recalls that Zubby Michael recently gave a subliminal response to those who have been dragging him for not publicly mourning, Junior Pope.

Junior Pope had passed away in a boat accident while returning from a movie location and many celebrities condoled with the family via social media platforms and in person.

However, Zubby who is known to be very cordial with the late actor, remained silent for days, and this led to people accusing him of being a fake friend. One of the celebrities that chided him is actress, Angela Okorie.

Amidst the uproar over his silence on the unfortunate event, Zubby Michael took to his Instagram page in April and stated that everyone should rest.

He emphasised that one must not post on their social media pages to prove that they are going through a painful time.

“Make Una rest. No be by posting,” Zubby wrote as he attached a video of himself shipping furniture’s and household items.

Delta state governor’s personal assistant, Ossai Ovie Success chided Zubby for wearing a red t-shirt to the funeral of his late colleague Jnr Pope, which held in Enugu state on Friday May 17.

Ovie argued that it is disrespectful and inappropriate for the actor to have worn red to the funeral. The political aide opined that the movie star should have worn either black or white because the deceased died in his prime.

He wrote; ”This is disrespectful to late Jnr Pope. Dear Zubby Michael, this your red dressing is inappropriate. This your red t shirt dressing to the burial ceremony of late Jr Pope is annoying and disrespectful to Jnr Pope.

Jnr Pope was so young when he di*d and doesn’t deserved you putting on red dressing to his burial ceremony. The burial ceremony calls for a sober reflection and not a celebration party ground. You could have gone there putting on black or white dressing.

I am disappointed though you are a good guy and I so much love watching your movies. I know you did this in an error and I know you will Change next time. One love bro.”
