Nollywood actress Nancy Isime has taken to her Instagram page to mourn the demise of her mum who passed on 26 years ago.
The actress who doubles as event host and OAP noted via her post that she still loves her mother dearly and no one can take her place in her heart.
“26 years today Mum. I still miss you everyday. No need to ask if you’re proud of me, the peace I feel today assures me you are. Thank you for being the best guardian Angel….Never stop watching over me. I Love You Mummy! No one will ever take your place in my heart. Till we meet to part No more. Keep Resting,” she wrote.
Nancy Isime had recounted how she lost her mother at five and later attempted suicide as a child.
In a chat with BBC Pidgin, she revealed her struggles as a teenage girl.
“I lost my mum at five. I didn’t really have a smooth childhood. I suffered from depression and attempted my first suicide in childhood. It was actually the only but I was able to go through all that and I’m still here today,” she recounted.
“Some people had time to grow through life but I had to mature in time. Losing your mum at the age of five, you’re exposed to a lot of things you’re not supposed to experience. I started working at the age of 17.
“I worked as an usher at events. From there, I started modeling. Some of the things I did, I didn’t expect would get me to where I’m today, I was trying to save money here and there to exit the country and start working abroad.”
