Ada Jesus, a comedienne, has died. She died today, April 21, in an Abuja hospital.
She went into cardiac arrest on Tuesday, April 20th, and was rushed to the ICU, where doctors kept an eye on her. Unfortunately, she succumbed to the kidney disease she had been fighting on Wednesday, April 21.
She was 22 years old at the time.
After developing kidney failure, Ada Jesus was admitted to the hospital. When her health began to deteriorate, she went to those she had previously criticized for forgiveness, including clergyman Prophet Chukwuemeka Ohanemere Odumejeje, actress Rita Edochie, and some traditional worshipers.
The initial reluctance of Odumejeje and Rita Edochie to forgive her drew the attention of well-meaning Nigerians, who offered to cover her medical bills so she could get dialysis. Her health, which had been said to be improving, took a turn for the worse last night, and she died.
