Nollywood actress Rita Edochie has come under fire over her reaction to the death of comedian Ada Jesus, who died of kidney related illness on Wednesday.
The sister-in-law of Nollywood icon Pete Edochie uploaded three videos to Instagram on Thursday morning which were interpreted by fans to be a celebration of the young woman’s demise.
One of the videos is of American rapper Kanye West singing his ‘Jesus Walks’ on a plane.
“JEEEEESUS is LORD,” Rita captioned the post along with flexed bicep emojis.
She posted another video minutes after of Bishop David Abioye preaching that people should not sleep at night because that is when destinies are stolen.
“Life is not funfair. Life is warfare. Those who give life gentleman’s approach end as losers,” the preacher said in the video, adding that “violence is the key for triumphant living.”
Rita captioned the video with the words “JEEEEESUS is LORD forever. LORD ALMIGHTY MADE ME A STRONG WOMAN AND THAT I WILL REMAIN THE SEED CAN NOT BE KILLED.”
Coming a day after the death of Ada Jesus, whom Rita and Prophet Chukwuemeka Odumeje had earlier cursed, the posts were condemned by many people on Instagram.
Below are some of the reactions as captured on Instagram:
@mizz_zeezee: I’m not understanding anymore o, so you were just sitting quietly and Ada will start insulting you on video? Just like that? Haba. What will Jesus say after all you have done for him and he still forgive us? May God give you the heart to forgive sha, she is gone and I know – all of us are going there one day no one will remain alive in this world.
@henrykingokwuy: Stop posting rubbish history will never forget you… I know you’re happy she’s gone.. Rest in peace Ada
@ mikky4real1: I am not a religious fanatic but one thing I do know is that you are far from knowing the name Jesus! Celebrate your small wins! God see us all! Enjoy
@drsoft_e: Sure! Jesus is lord… But let me remind you that death is inevitable. Ada just had her share, the remaining is for us. How and when it will come, you know not. So don’t fool yourself… We are all a step closer to our Graves. Jesus will remain lord. Shame!
