Nollywood Icon Amaka Igwe Is Dead
Nigerian film-maker and Nollywood icon Amaka Igwe has passed on at 51. The sad incident occurred yesterday in Enugu where she had gone, in company of her husband, for pre-production preparations for a new Igbo soap.
She suffered an asthma attack and was immediately rushed to the hospital after initial interventions had failed. She passed on before getting to the hospital.
Mrs Igwe is survived by her husband of 21 years Charles Igwe, three children, an aged mother, siblings and a large extended family.
She was an accomplished writer, producer, director, entrepreneur and teacher. She was also the founder of BoBTV Expo, founder and CEO of Top Radio 90.9FM, Amaka Igwe Studios, and the newly-launched Q Entertainment Networks. May her soul rest in peace.
