Nollywood actress Etinosa Idemudia has queried some colleagues over their condolence visit after Ada Ameh’s death as she accused them of chasing clout.

The actress’ statement comes after some celebrities recorded paying Empress Njamah, the late Ada’s friend, a condolence visit.

According to Etinosa, anyone who is touched by the actress’ death would not tell their P.A. to record them and share videos on social media.
“I feel we can all drop our phones and cameras and really do the condolence visit we came for. Imagine me seeing someone recording himself or herself coming to my father’s house for condolence. Let’s all be emotional. Sensitive, emotionally involved and emotionally genuine. Not everything is content. Well. I guess we all grieve differently. If you are really touched, if it is not just for a publicity sighting for you, you will not have mind telling your P.A hold the camera. As I’m walking in, be recording. Record everybody. She’s crying record her. Then you sat down, edited, and even put the soundtrack. No, it’s offensive. Clout is good business but this one is not nice.”

"Leave Empress alone. How many of you reached out to Ada when she was going through depression??? No be today we begin see videos of people crying? Empress crying has convinced those still in doubt. If she no cry, na una go still drag her."
"Wat if d P.A actually did it on her own,without empress being involve in it,my thought thou."
"I thought I was the only one who felt the disgust , why having camera film you while you cry ,Becos from the video of the crying there was a standby camera man/woman who even video another one who is still videoing with a phone ,the whole footage was totally not cool."
