Veteran Nollywood actress Ada Ameh has passed away.
The actress passed away on Sunday night. She was most known for playing Emu in the Africa Magic family drama, The Johnsons.
Emeka Rollas, the president of the Actors Guild of Nigeria, confirmed the information over the phone to The PUNCH on Monday morning.
“We lost Ada. No details at the moment, but we’ve lost Ada,” Rollas told our correspondent.
Viral unconfirmed rumors circulated on social media, however, asserting that the actress passed away Sunday night at a hospital in Delta State.
The actress. a few weeks ago, opened up about her mental health challenges.
“Everything is going to be fine. I have an issue right now, and it’s taking my life. I will not die. We will get over it,” Ameh had said.
The actress claimed that although she was given a job, she was unable to complete it due of mental health concerns.
The 48-year-old actress previously disclosed that she became pregnant with her daughter when she was just 13.
She claims that this occurred as a result of early sex exposure from peers.
Despite having given birth young, the actress lost her 30-year-old daughter Aladi Godgift in October 2020.
Aladi had passed away in Abuja following a failed surgery, and the actress last year paid a visit to her daughter’s grave to commemorate the deceased’s one-year passing.
On her daughter’s birthday after she had passed away, she had also given her a party.
