“Ify spent more than N10m, being helped with donations by her fellow actors and other Nigerians. A GoFundMe account was opened for her, but it did not yield much. She had to go for draining every two weeks at a cost of N280,000, but only 3 litres of liquid can be removed at a time so that her heart is not affected”

“IFEY has finally gone to rest, today 25th May 2021. May her soul rest in perfect peace. Amen.”
