Another tragedy has befallen the Nigerian Nollywood sector as Emeka Rollas, who is the President of the Actors Guild of Nigeria, AGN, had confirmed that Ada Ameh had died on Sunday at a Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) hospital in Delta State.

According to reports, the actress had kicked the bucket in Warri, Delta State around 11 pm on Sunday.

Ada Ameh was said to have been a guest of an oil company bigwig and his family when she had suddenly collapsed. It was gathered that she was rushed to the NNPC’s hospital but passed on before they arrived the facility.

 

Report has it that several movie stars have been trooping the facility on Monday morning to see her remains.

Ameh, became famous following the role of she played (Anita) in the movie ‘Domitilla’ in 1996, and was more recently adorned for her comic characters especially in the series, The Johnsons.

Born on May 15, 1974 in Ajegunle, Lagos, the popular actress shared a video of her eating with the family around 12:53pm on Sunday on her official Instagram page.

Ameh had previously stated that she had gotten pregnant at the age of 13 years old because her peers introduced her to sex early.

In a 2021 interview with media personality Chude Jideonwo, the actress revealed that her peers influenced her, which led her to get pregnant at the early age of 13. When asked about the cause of her early pregnancy, she said,

“It wasn’t my parents. I was influenced by my peers. They introduced me to ‘early sex’. One thing led to another, and I got pregnant.

“The most beautiful part is that, on my 15th birthday, my baby was barely five months old. I was marched out of the Barracks.”

Ameh stated that she took to alcoholism during that period because she felt she had gotten her independence already.

Despite her early motherhood, the actress, in October 2020, lost her daughter, Aladi Godgift, who was over 30 years old.

Aladi had died after an unsuccessful surgery in Abuja, and in October 2021, the bereaved mother visited her daughter’s grave site to mark her one-year remembrance.
