Actress Susan Pwajok has paid a lovely tribute to her onscreen mother the late Ada Ameh.
Susan, who plays the role of Blessing, Ada Ameh’s daughter, in the African Magic series The Johnsons, penned down the tribute in an Instagram post on Thursday.
She wrote: “Mummy I can’t believe you’re gone, I’ve been waiting to hear that it’s a joke or false information cause none of it seems real. You were a mother to me & always would be.
“I remember how you’d always say “ finish school oo don’t be like me wey no go school”. You were one of the strongest women I’ve ever met, you were never afraid to say it how it was or to feel. You were the first cast member of the Johnson’s to warm up to me as the new blessing, you would scold me when you saw I was distracted or not doing my best.”
She continued: “You were definitely more than an on-screen mother to me. You never missed any of my milestones, my primary school graduation, even when I brought raffle tickets you’d buy out a whole booklet, prefectship when you traveled & forgot to get me something you’d ask for my account details, when I was graduating secondary school, you bought me heels for my prom.
” I can’t start to list/mention things you did for me, I’m very grateful for everything & I’m happy that I was one of your children. To know you is to love you & I’m happy I was lucky enough to have been close to you for years.
“All the videos I have of you are happy memories & I’m glad I was able to make them with you. I’m going to miss you a lot & I’d miss your “pepper dem” Till we meet again.”
Ada Amerh died on Sunday, July 17, two years after the death of her daughter Aladi.
