Veteran Nollywood Actress Ada Ameh who was heartbroken in October 2020, after the shocking death of her daughter, Aladi Godgift, who was over 30 years old.
Ameh who is inconsolable after the sad incident says Aladi is irreplaceable to the extent that even if she gives birth again tomorrow, she or she cannot replace her.
She tells Sunday Scoop, “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).”
During the week, Ameh had also lambasted a former Big Brother Naija contestant, Ka3na, for lampooning a fan that tattooed her name on her body. Reiterating her stance on the issue, she said, “Nigerians like to emulate the western world and there’s nothing bad about it, provided it is a good thing.
Ameh also maintained that she would not encourage any fan to draw a tattoo of her. “No, I would not do that. I am a Christian and I believe in the word of God,” she said.
