Who mourned Ada Ameh after her death?

Ada Ameh was deeply mourned and is still being mourned by her families, friends, and colleagues, in particular, Empress Njamah. Empress was one of her closest friends.

If you recall, Empress had created a donation campaign for the late actress using “Zenith Bank.” She also came out to list those that had contributed to which no Nollywood name was seen on the list. View the post on the donation and appreciation-Empress Njamah made toward the late actress, Ada Ameh.

“To all who made donations, thanks for the true and genuine love, almighty God bless you all. Thanks for the support. I honestly can’t do this without you guys. My team and I will be very transparent to the end for some reasons best known to us. Kindly let us know if your name was wrongly spelled so we can correct it. For those who didn’t see the donation post, we just posted it again. FOR THE LOVE OF ADA AMEH”

Empress Njamah also announced a program organized on behalf of the late Ada Ameh. View her posts below:

“Join us on Tuesday, 23rd august in Abuja (Blakes Excellence Resort Garki) as we bid an amazing soul (Ada Ameh) goodnight, a night to remember, come and honor her with your presence…”

All these and more Empress Njamah did to bid her friend, Ada Ameh farewell as she joined other saints of the Lord in heaven.

However, it seems like one member of Ada Ameh’s family did not find Empress’s doings, especially the donation campaign funny.

Abahi Ameh, the younger sister of Ada Ameh, had in one of her posts taken a swipe at Empress Njamah. Abahi said the family kept quiet on Ada’s demise till her remains were brought back home. She had stylishly accused Empress of setting up condolences and mourning houses without the family’s consent.

“@amehabahi: The family of Obande Ameh has received several calls and attacks from some followers and fans of Ada Ameh for the collaborations done on her page by her younger sister, Ameh Abahi, and her husband, Hotom Azuma. It saddens us to realize that the public prefers to hear that Ada Ameh has no living family members so they can sympathize than hear truths from the family members. It is obvious to us that our intentions have been largely misinterpreted and twisted by strangers who want to continue to promote the wrong narrative about our family. The family stayed quiet on her death for a long while till we got her remains back home. During this period, we received several calls of people setting up condolences and opening mourning houses without the family’s consent, while some had gone ahead to declare that she had no living members of her immediate family and signed death notifications on our behalf. We thought it wise to collaborate on her page to bring the correct information to her fans who are also grieving. We had no ill motive. Our talk is a way of relieving the pains we feel. You can do well not to add to it. We will give information concerning the burial plans still in collaboration tomorrow for your perusal. We convert all your prayers as a family. God bless you all.”

Life is short as it is said. Your life was very impactful. You will be remembered for what you have done. Fams, kindly drop your tributes to Ada on “” Announcements for the candlelight and funeral service will be announced by her family soon.”

It’s amazing the things I am seeing on social media, many things brought to my knowledge, it’s not the right time to speak, let me mourn in peace.
