Nollywood actress Ify Onwueme has been pronounced dead after battling with endometrial cancer for years.

Nigerian actress, Gloria Anozie -Young, a friend and colleague of the “everyday people” star has taken to Facebook to announce the death of the popular veteran Nollywood actress.

The actress had passed away in the late hours of May 25, 2021 after battling with cancer.

Sharing a picture of the Ify, Gloria Anozie-Young wrote;

“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 8 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 10million naira, 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 280,000naira but only 3litres 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. Burial arrangements will be released by the family.”

The family is yet to announce Burial arrangements.

In a recent chat, Adeduntan explained the bank’s resolve to sponsor socio-cultural initiatives in the creatives and arts industry.

He said, “Over time, we have been involved in the sponsorship of several socio-cultural initiatives in the creative arts industry like Moremi, Mokalik, Oba Esugbayi stage drama, October 1, and the Calabar Festival.

“Even in the music industry, we have supported and sponsored artistes like Davido, Burna Boy, and a host of other reigning stars. Importantly, the Bank’s sponsorship of ‘Ayinla’ affirms the bank’s support for the development of arts in Nigeria under our First@arts initiative.’

Speaking further, Adeduntan noted that: “First Bank believes that our culture, our art, is a very important part of who we are, and it reflects who we are. And for us to ensure that our culture, our arts, our practices don’t perish, especially one that will continue to mainstream our arts, and that is what this movie emphasizes a lot.”

The premiere had film stars like Kunle Afolayan, Kunle Remi, Mr. Macaroni, Femi Branch, Toyin Abraham, Mercy Aigbe, Omowunmi Dada, Bimbo Ademoye, and Big Brother Africa’s Tayo Faniran, amongst several others in attendance.
