Such is life. Sometimes you’re a burst of sunshine and other times, there is a need to withdraw in order to recharge. Only to bounce back, better and ready to take on the world. Losing a loved one hits differently for each individual but what matters the most is the solace of knowing that somehow they live on through us. This is something Nollywood star actress Osas Ighodaro knows too well.
Having lost her mom last year, the mother-of-one took a break from the film industry to mourn the loss of her mother. They say absence makes the heart fonder, so it’s inevitable that her fans and well wishers missed her a lot. News of her return have been met with excitement as many are happy that they get to see her on their screens and circles again.
“I’ve seen your messages and concern and support and all I can say is Thank you from the bottom of my heart – it has helped in getting me through – one day at a time.”
