Actor Emeka Ike has announced the death of his mother Comfort Okwuchi Ike who passed on at the age of 93.
The bereaved actor made the announcement in a post via Instagram on Friday with an obituary video.
“My hero is gone, RIP world Mother,” he captioned the video.
Fellow celebrities like Toyin Abraham, Dolly Unacahukwu, Ernest Obi, Lilian Bach, Joycee Kalu and Weird Mc consoled him in the comment section of the post.
The actor made his debut in the film industry while studying at the University of Lagos.
His breakthrough in Nollywood happened after one of his senior colleagues introduced him to a movie producer named Charles Owoyemi.
In March 2017, a Lagos Island Customary Court dissolved Emeka Ike’s 17 year-old-marriage to Suzanne Emma.
The court granted Emeka custody of the four children but ordered that Suzanne should be granted unhindered access to them.
Suzanne in the petition filed before the court accused Emeka of incessant beating, molestation, and torture, which she said she could no longer endure.
But Emeka in his response denied beating, molesting, or torturing his wife.
Emeka Ike married his South African wife, Yolanda Pfeiffer in a low-key wedding early in 2019.
The actor and his new wife welcomed a baby girl in October 2019 in a German hospital.
