Nigerian Actress, Adah Ameh, Dies Week After Admitting Mental Health Troubles
Famous Nollywood actress, Adah Ameh has died just a week after admitting her mental health struggles.
According to reports, the Benue state-born actress lost her life in a hospital in Warri, Delta State, where she had been taken to for treatment after battling with a yet-to-be-identified illness.
Sadly, the Nollywood actress had earlier revealed her mental health issues to the world when she agreed to appear in an interview, discussing her struggles a few weeks ago.
While in the interview, the 48-year-old actress revealed that she was given a job that she couldn’t turn in because she was struggling with her mental health.

In a post via her Instagram page on Wednesday, the actress explained that the company did not understand what she was going through, so they filed a lawsuit against her.
Ameh claimed the company was suing her for a staggering sum that she seemed unable to pay.
The actress, who began her career 27 years ago, admitted that the process affected her, but she wouldn’t let it weigh her down or kill her.
Ameh, who lost her only child in October 2020, explained: “It’s taking my life.” Sharing the video on Instagram, she added the caption: “do me good. Because God is good.”
She said: “I’m having a problem right now that could take my life, but I’m not going to die. We would get over it. I was given a job, but I didn’t do it because I have mental health issues. People will understand if you have mental health issues. Mental health? No, they wouldn’t. They pay me a bill and sue me. That’s fine.”
In November, the Nollywood actress opened up about giving birth at age 13 in an interview with media personality Chude Jideonwo.
In October 2020, Ameh lost her 30-year-old daughter, Aladi God gift, to an unsuccessful operation in Abuja, an incident that has since affected her mental health as she was once quoted stating that “life has never really remained the same since.”
