Father of popular Nollywood actress Annie Idibia has died of cancer, yans.ng can report.
While making the disclosure, Annie who is the wife of music icon 2face Idibia recalls how her beloved father fought so hard to survive from the disease, but to no avail.
Her words: “This year started for me quite tough. I spent the first three months of this year in the hospital with my father because he had been sick for a while but God has been great and I am grateful. I am actually closer to my mother than my father because she raised us single-handedly. My father is still my father and since he was sick we had to rally round him.
“Growing up with only my mother really affected my life and I suffered and I do not ever want my children to face the agony of not having both parents together because it was so hard for us. Even right now, the way the world is, children are more enlightened than we were in our days, so the pressure would be harder on the kids from broken homes right now. I do not want my children to ever experience that.”
Annie also took to her Instagram to express her emotions concerning her father’s demise. She wrote,
“R I P Daddy You Fought Hard #cancersucks #thePainIsGone”
