Popular Nigerian actress, Rita Edochie, is currently facing heat on social media following the death of controversial comedienne, Ada Jesus.
The veteran movie star has now taken to her social media page to react to the sad news despite the backlash she received from Nigerians.
Edochie had rained heavy curses on Ada Jesus and condemned her to death during her lifetime in a viral video on the internet. The movie star was displeased that the comedienne claimed she was a part of fake miracles with popular preacher, Prophet Odumeje.

Many Nigerians started to point accusing fingers at Edochie after Ada Jesus finally gave up the ghost.
In reaction, the actress shared a five-minute sermon video where a Winners Chapel pastor preached about the importance of prayer because life is warfare and not fun fare. According to the pastor in the video, ‘only the violent taketh it’ because violence is the key for triumphant living.
In the caption of the post, Edochie said that God made her a strong woman and she will remain that way.
In her words:
“JEEEEESUS is LORD forever. LORD ALMIGHTY MADE ME A STRONG WOMAN AND THAT I WILL REMAIN. THE SEED CAN NOT BE KILLED”
In another post, the movie star shared a viral video of Kanye West rapping his popular Jesus Walks track onboard a plane. Some of the lyrics included the rapper asking God to show him the way because the devil was trying to bring him down.

In no time, both posts gathered reactions from Nigerians and many of them were attacks against the actress. While a few people said her actions should not be judged, others blamed her for Ada Jesus’ death.
Read what some of them had to say below:
"May the soul of ADA JESUS REST IN PEACE ✌️ Amen A minute of silence."
"Madam Ada has slept.. And u are awake...."
"Rita? Do you even believe in the Almighty God and his last day? A real believer doesn't wish evil for his or her fellow human beings. Not talking about being evil or thinking that you are the givers and takers of life. You were boasting saying that your last child is a lawyer, but your deeds couldn't permit a young child to boast of her life. Judgment starts on earth and everyone shall get their results on earth. The stigma has just started!"
