Ruby Orjiakor Calls Out Baba Rex for Allegedly Exploiting Junior Pope’s Death for Content

Ruby claims that, although the actor's soul had hardly had a chance to rest, Baba Rex took use of Junior Pope's passing for his own gain.

Ruby Orjiakor, a Nigerian actress, has turned to social media to criticize her colleague Baba Rex for allegedly exploiting the passing of late actor Junior Pope for material. Ruby Orjiakor bemoaned Junior Pope’s premature death in a post dated June 3, 2024, and accused her colleague, Baba Rex, of exploiting the tragedy to create content. She expressed her disappointment, saying that even if Baba Rex had supposedly already started using the actor’s passing for his personal gain, Junior Pope’s soul had hardly had time to rest.

In addition, Ruby Orjiakor blamed controversial producer Adanma Luke, claiming that Luke was too preoccupied with divulging information about Junior Pope’s purported requests for work prospects to mourn Junior Pope’s loss with regret.
