Ada Ameh’s life was broken in October 2020 when her only daughter, Aladi Gift, died after a long struggle with illness.
Months after, the Nollywood actress has yet to put this tragic incident behind her and begin a new life.
After crying out, the mother remembered how Aladi had made her a happier woman, and how she would not have been alive today without her late daughter.
Ada Ameh openly shared her feelings in a recent interview with Sunday Scoop, explaining the massive hole her daughter’s death has left in her life.
“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).”
