A Nollywood actress who also doubles as the wife of music star, Innocent Idibia (2Face), Annie Macauley Idibia, has lost her father.
The mother of two lost her father to cancer in the early hours of yesterday (Wednesday).
While announcing the news of her father’s death, Annie revealed that the old man fought so hard to battle the disease. Recounting the time she spent with her father, she wrote:
“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.”
While breaking the sad news to her followers on Instagram, Annie posted:
“R I P Daddy❤️❤️❤️� You Fought Hard #cancersucks #thePainIsGone”
