Nollywood is in mourning again as one of the grand dames of Nigerian Theatre Rachel Oniga died on Friday July 30, of an undisclosed ailment at the age of 64.

Sources said the Thespian was early in the week part of the acting crew of a production being shot in Mowe ogun state.

When news of her death filtered out early Saturday morning, the shock was palpable as her colleagues said they were not aware she was nursing any ailment.

Born on the 23rd of May 1957 in Ebutte Metra, Lagos state but originally from Eku Delta State, the star made her Nollywood debut in the 1996 hit movie ‘Onome.’

She went on to star in many big productions including the popular Wale Adenuga Television series ‘Super Story’. Her most recent movies include ‘Chief Daddy,’ ‘Royal Hibiscus Hotel’ and ‘My Village People.’

She was survived by three children and several grandchildren.

May her gentle soul rest in perfect peace 🙏
