ADA GRACE AMEH
Born on the 15th of May 1974 in Ajegunle, a suburb in Lagos Nigeria, Ada Grace Ameh had the will to defy the odds of her humble beginnings and make a successful life and career out of her situation. Though early childbirth slowed down the process and in many ways shaped her outlook in life, she was determined not to let it slow her down.
In the year 1996, Nigeria and Africa was introduced to the vivacious character Anita in the award winning Nollywood flick Glamour girls and since then, this legendary screen diva never looked back.
With a repertoire of Nollywood movies spanning two decades, Ada cemented her status as a screen icon when she clinched the role of the doting and out spoken Emuakpor Johnson on the multi award winning Africa Magic commissioned family sitcom The Johnsons, a role she has reprised for 11 seasons, putting smiles on the faces and in the homes of her teeming fans as Emuakpor Johnson, by being a source of laughter, entertainment and joy to millions of people.
On the 17th of July 2022, the Idoma Benue State native took a final curtain call and exited the stage that is life. She will be fondly remembered for her immense contributions to the film industry in particular and the Nigerian entertainment industry in general.
Nmoo Gb’ochi Ada, your race is done.
