A sad news reaching Becksblog.com.ng, that the popular Nollywood Actress, Ify Onwuemene, who was well known for her role in the popular sitcom ‘Everyday People’, has died of cancer.
Becksblog.com.ng, had some months back, reported how the actress was critically ill and needed financial help from well meaning Nigerians through a GoFundMe account.
The actress was said to have died on Tuesday, May 25, 2021.
This was disclosed today, May 26, by her close colleague and friend, Gloria Anozie-Young, via her Facebook page.
“With a deep sense of loss but total submission to God Almighty, we regret to announce that IFEY ONWUEMENE has gone to be with the Lord.
“IFEY ONWUEME was diagnosed with endometrial cancer. Her womb was removed, but she has been battling the ailment for many years now.
“In 2019, even after eight sessions of chemotherapy, the doctors told her she had reached stage 4. However, we are not sure if she was given the wrong diagnosis or being treated with the wrong chemo, because she still felt pains on her upper abdomen and her tummy bloated.
“Ify spent more than N10m, being helped with donations by her fellow actors and other Nigerians. A GoFundme account was opened for her, but it did not yield much. She had to go for draining every two weeks at a cost of N280,000, but only 3 litres of liquid can be removed at a time so that her heart is not affected.
“IFEY has finally gone to rest, today 25th May 2021. May her soul rest in perfect peace. Amen.”
May God bless her soul. Amen.
