Cindy Amadi, a popular actress in Nigerian films, has died.
Yesterday, the film’s creators posted an Instagram message announcing her death from their account, @ife_movie.
Directed by Nse Ikpe-Etim’s sister Nyaiedu Ikpe-Etim, “Ife” also starred the late Amadi alongside MTV Shuga’s Uzomaka Aniunoh.
The movie’s official Facebook page shared its sadness at Cindy Amadi’s passing, writing, “We are greatly, deeply, and unbelievably saddened to learn about the passing of Cindy Amadi, who played Adaora in #féthemovie.”
They say Cindy worked her magic on set, and now they can never go back.
She had a strong desire to learn new skills, advance in her profession, and display her talent in new ways. Until her untimely death, she was well on her way,” the statement read.
Pamela Adie, a producer, posted on her Instagram story about the actress’s death.
The producer expressed disappointment, saying, “This wasn’t the idea, Cindy.” When I said we would make a sequel, you were overjoyed.
I apologise that we were unable to meet your deadline. But we will see it through…for you. “Rest easy for the time being,” she said.
The film ‘fé’ follows the relationship of two Nigerian women, fé and Adaora, as they fall in love over the course of a three-day date and work to keep their relationship alive despite the challenges of being out as lesbians in Nigeria.
The entertainment community is still reeling from Tuesday’s loss of singer Mohbad, and this report arrives at a difficult time.
