Nollywood actress, Ada Ameh has continued to grief over the death of her only child, Aladi Gift who she lost to the cold hands of death in October 2020.
The bereaved mother in a recent interview with Sunday Scoop revealed that she suffered depression after the death of her daughter, despite having friends and colleagues who stood by her.
Ada described her deceased daughter as her best friend who made her a better person. According to her, she would not have been here today if it not been for her late daughter.
In her words,
“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”.
