The funeral of Nollywood veteran Rachael Oniga has been fixed for August 26 and 27 in Lagos. This was made known by the family of the late veteran after a condolence visit by some state officials on Wednesday.
Madam Oniga died on Friday night, July 30 from a heart-related ailment. The actress was said to have been ill and succumbed to the cold hands of death last Friday.
An indigene of Eku in Delta State, the actress was born in 1957 in Ebute Metta, Lagos State. She made her acting debut in the 1996 hit movie ‘Onome’ and went on to star in several big productions including ‘Sango’ and Wale Adenuga’s TV series, ‘Super Story.’
She is a mother to many in the industry and also a friend to many.
Needless to say, she will be greatly missed.
May her soul rest in peace, Amen.
