Kenny Ogungbe looses millions to fire Again!!
For the second time in about two years, entertainment mogul Kenny Ogungbe, has experienced a heavy loss as fire gutted the BQ housing all of his top-of-the-range HD equipment, speakers, consoles and many other audio-visual equipment (used for Kennis Music , Kennis TV and Primetime Africa satellite broadcast)) completely destroyed.
Believed to have been caused by electrical wirings, the inferno, occurred in the evening of Thursday March 19.
Despite the huge loss, Keke – as he is fondly called – seems to be taking the blow in good fate. In a statement issued through his publicist, he stated:
‘‘‘Everyone is OK. We thank God no lives were lost…, I must thank the Fire service for acting promptly. And I thank the Lagos Governor, The Nigeria Police, all media houses, my neighbors and other concerned citizens too. We thank God we were able to contain the fire before it could spread further,’’
Close friends and associates who have visited as at press time include veteran producer Wale Adenuga, Keke’s friend and partner Dayo Adeneye, Keke’s brothers Taiwo and ID Ogungbe and Ayeni Adekunle.
The boys quarters of his Ajao Estate home in Lagos (now a one-story-ed building), was still a bungalow when the first fire outbreak occurred nearly two years ago.
