Newsonline reports that popular actress, Ada Ameh died in Warri, Delta State around 11:00 p.m on Sunday.

She died almost two years after the death of her only child, Aladi Godgift Ameh who died at the age of 32.

Few weeks back, Ada posted a video complaining of mental health challenges and pressure from some of her clients who are after her because of her inability to meet contractual agreement.

Many did not take her serious, but were rather taunting her to either meet her obligation or return the money.

Ameh was said to have been a guest of an oil company toyshop and his family when she suddenly collapsed. It was gathered that she was rushed to the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation’s hospital but passed on before they arrived the facility.

Ameh, who played the role of Anita in the movie, ‘Domitilla’ in 1996, is famous for her comic characters, especially in the series The Johnsons.

She was born on May 15, 1974 in Ajegunle, Lagos.

The popular actress shared a video of her eating with the family around 12:53p.m on Sunday on her official Instagram page.

In a similar development, the news of the death of veteran Nollywood Actress, Sola Onayiga was made public by the Founder of the Best of Nollywood Awards, Seun Oloketuyi.
