Video: “Trying to fight back tears”- Chioma Akpotha marks 10 years remembrance of her late mother



Nollywood actress Chioma Akpotha is commemorating her late mother’s 10-year passing.

The movie star wrote in a lengthy Instagram post that she was struggling to hold back tears as she thought back to when her mother passed away in her arms ten years ago.

She acknowledged that she still feels pain from her passing and that she has always wished her mother had been there.

The fact that the pain has become a part of her and, more specifically, a significant part of her adulthood, makes it less painful.

Chioma continued by saying that she is still finding it difficult to fill the void left by her mother.

“10 Years Today!

Nnem Oma! Ada Ugo! Egoyibo! Ugomba! Mkparu! Nma! Aka n’esiki ora! Ochili o’zua! Oyoyo nnem!

Trying to fight back tears today as I remember how you took your last breath in my arms this day, 10 years ago. The downpour that Wednesday morning was not to be compared to the years my eyes and heart shed. But it was a sign to me that the heavens had welcomed you.

It still hurts but not as much because the pain has become a part of me and more so a major part of my adulthood. I am still struggling to fill the shoes you left for me even as I try to navigate life as a mother too.

I will never stop wishing that you would be here with me but I am also grateful for the light that you continue to shine down on us. Your memories are ever fresh in my heart even as I constantly draw strength from them.

Mother’s Day and your birthdays and the day you left us are always the hardest for me. But then again I see your smile and perseverance in Ogechukwu. Your wit in Tochukwu, your stubbornness, and drama in Ifeyimwa and Chigozie and they constantly warm my heart. You are still there with us Nma.


You have more grandchildren now and your Husband is keeping on well.

Continue to rest in peace Mama Onyebuchi. I love you Forever”.
