Nollywood actress, Uduak Akrah, has passed away.
She died on Saturday.
A source close to the family told Qed.ng that she had been ill for a while after a nasty fall in the bathroom.
She was rushed to the Lagos University Teaching Hospital (LUTH) but was pronounced dead on arrival.
Uduak Akrah was known for movies like Emotional Crack and Bafana Bafana.
Asked in a 2014 interview if she can take up roles that would require nudity, she said, “Never! Because I think if I want to pass any message across, I can do that without necessarily going nud
When you expose your body, what message are you passing across? Even if the person is a prostitute, does it mean you have to see the person naked before you can pass the message that the fellow is a prostitute?
“I don’t need to go nude to pass the message. Our society doesn’t permit that. So, it’s not fashionable to act nude. You only make fool of yourself if you do that.”
Uduak was also a singer. She has singles such as ‘So Real’ ‘Blessed Mother Nigeria’ and ‘The Helpless Child’ to her name.
A graduate of creative art from the University of Lagos (Unilag), she was also an event planner who many described as warm and gentle.
