“He has just called in from Warri and, sadly, he has confirmed our worst fears. Our beloved Emuakpor Johnson is no more!

“It is with deep sense of loss, total submission to the will of God, that Native Media Tv, cast and crew of @theofficialthejohnsons painfully announce the passing of our dear sister, friend, colleague and Matriarch of The Johnsons clan Ada Obande Ameh (aka Emuakpor Johnson).

“To all our teeming fans around the world, we have truly lost a rare and vibrant gem, but celebrate the life of an icon who daily put smiles on every face and spreads love in every home.

“Together, we join our voices with yours to offer prayers on behalf of the family. May God grant them the fortitude to bear this irreplaceable loss.

“ADA, you will be missed, but your memory will live on in our hearts forever. We love you.”

A heartfelt obituary for the late actress was also written by actress Seun Osigbesan, who had portrayed Jennifer and Emu’s kid in the comic series.

She wrote, “My maama. It’s been extremely hard for me all day. Never ever thought I would be making an ‘RIP’ post of you maama.

“Tears wouldn’t even allow me to type as I am completely devastated and broken.

My maama, It’s so hard to even think or imagine you’re no more, not talking of embracing its reality. This news of your demise is a sharp pain in the chest. It is as though a missile just exploded in a city.

“I kept saying and repeating these words to myself as I wept, ‘it is well’, Never will you be forgotten my maama. NEVER!!! RIP maama.”

A post on Africa Magic official Instagram page also paid a glowing tribute to the actress.

“Farewell to a gem, Ada Ameh. Your passion brought so many smiles and love to families beyond measure. You will be missed. From all of [email protected] Africa Magic, “the post read.
