The famous Nollywood actress, comedian, producer, and television personality, Ada Ameh, is dead.
The National President of the Actors Guild of Nigeria, Emeka Rollas, confirmed the unfortunate incident to PREMIUM TIMES Monday morning.
Mr Rollas said he had been briefed about her demise but was still gathering more insight into the circumstances behind her death.
He, however, promised to issue a formal statement later today.
Unconfirmed reports say that she died in a hospital in Delta State on Sunday night.
In 2020, Ms Ameh lost her daughter, Aladi God gift, who was over 30 years old.
Her daughter died after an unsuccessful surgery in Abuja.
The actress said that life had not remained the same since her daughter’s death.
Just last month, Ms Ameh, in a post on social media, tearfully talked about an issue that was threatening her life and her mental health.
Though the news was made public on Monday, Ameh, aged 48, died Sunday night.
The actress, known for her major role in the Africa Magic family drama, The Johnsons, had opened up on her mental issues a few weeks before her demise.
