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.
Tears dropped from my eyes, when I heard of your demise. Whenever, I see your picture I still cry. You were such an amazing woman who always make me to watch The Johnson series, because it makes me happy whenever I watch that program . You were an amazing actress notwithstanding not been able to meet with you. May your good and gentle soul rest in peace. Aunty Ada. Amen
I have watched you on TV while growing up till date…. You were everything and More… Continue to rest in the bossom of the Lord ma’am… May God give your family and friends the strength to bear this GREAT Loss??
It is impossible to forget you Madam Ada, you selflessly made us smile despite everything going on in your life. I guess you had to go because you are an Angel, you don’t belong to this world. Rest easy Mama. It still feels unreal but we will get used to it and make do with the memories. Goodnight Angel.
May the good Lord who knows best accept your soul. We will miss you, Ada.

Rest in peace to this wonderful being, tho I never got a chance to meet her one on one or even get to know her on a personal level.. But she is a good woman, mother, and sister.. It’s very rare to bear all the pain she had to go through and still smile through it all and not just that–she made Nigeria ?? and the world smile.. That’s rare!!! Rest on!!!
Keep resting beautiful woman .
You made my childhood wonderful
It all feels surreal… I still check your Instagram page to ascertain your demise, hoping it’s all a dream. Keep resting mama. You’re so much loved??
May her gentle soul Rest In Peace amen??
Aunty Ada, watching the Johnsons every other night and hearing about your death made me realize once again that we’re all on a journey called life. I never met you personally but you brought smiles to my face. Watching your movies like Corner stone and my village people made me laugh hard. Thank you for always making us laugh and although you’re gone, you’re not forgotten.
The Johnsons will never be the same again. Rest on LEGEND!
That woman was everything on the Johnsons…I never met her but I wish I did..may her soul rest in perfect peace
Farewell ma you will be missed ❤️?
You have no replacement. your demise is very painful
You have no replacement and I am sure God knows this buthe has a better place for you. From the good old Nollywood films where you were mother to the iconic Aki and Paw Paw, to the contemporary series of the Johnson’s, you have ashown to be a great and indispensable talent. But we can’t question God cos He knows the best for us all. One thing is certain and I know it; you must be making angels laugh over there,.
I pray u rest in peace. Rest well Emuakpor Johnson
