Ruke Chico Ejiro,  the only daughter of the late Nigerian filmmaker,  Chico Ejiro,  has shared her heartache following the death of two close family members in less than one year.


Ruke, a Mass Communucation graduate, lost her father on Dec. 25, 2020, and lost her brother, Eloviano Chico-Ejiro, yesterday, Nov. 15, 2021.


The death of her father was really hard on her and Ruke, who calls herself a daddy’s girl, had written a touching tribute to her dad following his passing.



Now, following her brother’s death, she took to her Instagram Stories to write: “I cried too much this year.”
