Following earlier reports that Ada Ameh, popularly known for her starring role in The Johnsons, had passed away, Roger Ofime, the showrunner, has come on Instagram to further authenticate the news and bid his colleague farewell.
“It has taken a while to authenticate this sad news before going public under advisement from Ada’s manager who was on his way to Warri to secure physical confirmation of the horrible news that hit us all this morning. He has just called in from Warri and sadly he has confirmed our worst fears… Our beloved Emuakpor Johnson is no more!
“It is with deep sense of loss, total submission to the will of God, that Native Media Tv, cast and crew of @theofficialthejohnsons painfully announce the passing of our dear sister, friend, colleague and Matriarch of The Johnsons clan Ada Obande Ameh (aka Emuakpor Johnson).
“To all our teeming fans around the world, we have truly lost a rare and vibrant gem, but celebrate the life of an icon who daily put smiles on every face and spread love in every home. Together, we join our voices with yours to offer prayers on behalf of the family. May God grant them the fortitude to bear this irreplaceable loss. ADA, You will be missed but your memory will live on in our hearts forever. We love you @charlesinojie @chineduikedieze @olumideoworu @dukeelvis1_ @thennennaudeh @elielotote @mcobeleife1 @iamwhochey @rejoice_rejme @kunlebamtefa @lepaciousbose @gajisammie @officialthejohnsonsfamily @comicyans”
