Veteran Nollywood actress, Ify Onwuemene has died after battling endometrial cancer for more than two years.

The actress who was well known for her role in popular sitcom ‘Everyday People, died of cancer yesterday, May 25th.

Recall that the actress who spoke up about her medical condition in 2019, got support from fans and well-wishers including a sum of one million naira from popular Nigerian singer, Davido.

A friend and colleague of the deceased, Gloria Anozie-Young, who confirmed the news of her death in a Facebook post moments ago, gave details of how the actress battelled with the disease which eventually took her life.

“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 ONWUEMENE was diagnosed with endometrial cancer. Her womb was removed, but she has been battling the ailment for many years now.

“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.” She wrote.
