Nollywood actress Funke Akindele and other Nigerian celebrities have expressed condolence to their colleague Ime Bishop Umoh, popularly called Okon of Lagos, over the death of his mother.

The actor took to his Instagram page to announce his mother’s demise with a dark image alongside a candle at the centre.

Okon wished his mother would have stayed a bit longer, adding that the situation has made him depleted and numb.

He wrote: You could have just waited just a bit. I am depleted and numb. It’s my own mother, I’ve lost her.

Reacting to this, many of his colleagues stormed the comment section with condolence messages.
