BEVERLY HILLS, February 28, (THEWILL) – Popular Nigerian actress, Ada Ameh, has disclosed that her late daughter, Aladi Godgift, helped mould into a better person.
Ameh disclosed this during an interview with the Sunday Punch.
She said: “In the space of some years, I lost four members of my family. It was in 2018 after the death of my younger singer, Ajuma, who was a football coach, that I discovered I was suffering from depression. I had not even healed totally, when my daughter passed away. My family members, friends and colleagues stood by me and supported me with prayers. Empress Njamah became like a small mother to me. We have known each other for over 22 years. It has just been by the grace and mercy of God.
“I miss my daughter so much and I still have a large picture of her in my living room. My daughter died as an adult and we practically grew up together. I had her at the age of 14. She was more of a friend to me, than a daughter. It is not something I can ever forget. Even if I give birth again tomorrow, I cannot replace her. She was irreplaceable. She made me a better person. The way I value and appreciate people was because of her. In many ways, she made me who I am today. If I did not have her, perhaps, I would not have been the person I am today. She gave my life a new meaning and she made my journey much easier (cries).”
THEWILL writes that Ameh recently berated former Big Brother Naija housemate, Ka3na, for lampooning a fan that tattooed her name on her body.
Speaking on the issue, the actress said: “Nigerians like to emulate the western world and there’s nothing bad about it, provided it is a good thing.
“The girl in question, Ka3na, actually wrote on Twitter that she wished a fan would tattoo her name or image on their body. That means she encouraged it. And a young lady, who is a fan of hers, took up the challenge and did it. I don’t even think the fan did it because she wanted anything in return from her.
“(What Ka3na did) is not the best way to treat one’s fan. After she responded that way to the fan, the young girl actually attempted suicide. It is very important to have self love. I put myself first before any other person. I wouldn’t love to carry anybody’s face on my body, not even my daughter that passed on. I have friends who put tattoos on their bodies and now, some say if they had known, they would not have done it.”
