Ansa why? Is this how we are taking over the filmmaking world? Dear Lord! This wasn't part of the plan but you know best. Rest well darling. May God give your beautiful daughter, your husband, your parents and indeed the whole Nollywood family the fortitude to bear this loss 😢😩😥 #GoneTooSoon #RipAnsa
Ansa! How I wish you would Answer me! Where do I even start from? I have been trying to wrap my head around this but it is still not making sense. My goodness. This is one of the greatest shocks I have had in a long time. Words indeed fail me at this time but all I can say is God surely knows best. I can't believe we are talking about you in past tense. The most loyal, hardworking, dedicated, supportive and greatest team player I have ever had the privilege of working with. You have left an indelible mark in my heart. The shoes you have left behind will be very difficult to fill. You made my life on set so easy because of your selflessness and diligence. The 'bestest' Assistant Director anyone could ever wish for. Rest well my sister and may your soul rest in perfect peace. We will miss you greatly. May God give your family and us the fortitude to bear this great loss. We love you but God loves you most.
Ansa died in her sleep yesterday after complaining of pains from peptic ulcer. She’s survived by her parents, husband Eric and daughter Rezi.
May her soul rest in peace.
