She added that it was her first time filming with Junior Pope and that she was his wife's friend. The two planned to work together after the wife connected them.

"The wife who asked me 'why are you not giving my husband work?'

On the unfortunate day, the producer says she was told by her production manager that the late actor allegedly refused to use a life jacket with the claim that it was dirty.

"My production manager said that there were life jackets hanging there but Junior Pope said they were dirty so he didn't take it. The people with the life jacket survived. He also told me that when they were in the water, trying to survive, Junior Pope was also there, asking 'is everybody okay? Hope everybody is fine." That they even threw a gallon to him to hold onto it, which he was holding and all of a sudden they didn't see him again."

Adding "It was when they came out that they noticed he was no longer there. "

When she asked what could have caused the accident , she was told the captain was standing on the speed boat and ringing a bell.

She added that she has been providing money to recover the bodies and cater for the caskets.
