Earlier in the year, the blogosphere was bubbling with the news of the death of the mother of popular Nollywood actor, Jim Iyke. The 67 years old Mrs. Ngozi Gladys Okelue Esomugha, died on March 24, 2014, after she succumbed to a long battle with illness.
The actor after the death of his mother, expressed his love for the mum and even released a press statement describing her as a 'force of nature.'
My big sis, my 1st wife, my confidante, my rock, my critique, my greatest fan and regal leader.
“She was a radiant, gorgeous woman with a smile bigger than the sun and always ready to embrace anyone for all the good and even wrong reasons.
“My sun is gone. The dull numbing ache in my heart will never be pacified by any woman alive. Not my lover, sisters nor even a daughter I may one day bear.
“The relationship of a mother and an only son is uniquely eternal and spiritual, transcending human comprehension. Mine with Gladys is even far strangely beyond that.
“They say it's a blessing if a son buries his mother and not the other way around. I'm not sure they're entirely right.
“They also said one never recovers from the loss of their mother. I hope they are right! May I never recover from the memories of your celestial love, sacrifices, warmth, your contagious laughter and merciless wit.
“Your enthusiasm for life and service of others was infectious. I'll miss you each and every waking moment of my life. I know you're in a better place now.
“I'll carry on everything you stood for 'til my last days.
“You came and saw and conquered.
“Adieu Gladys from your boy Jim.
“I love you till the last breathe I take.”
After all the sweet words the actor wrote to his mother, six months down the line, fans are yet to hear about the burial plans of the actor's mother as he spends more time working on his reality TV show 'Jimiyke Unscripted.'
The actor some weeks back wrote on his social media page that, “They say death is no more than passing from one room to another. They however didn't state that I will not be in the next room...yet. It's what they lost me.”
Rather, Jim has been traveling round and creating one controversy or the other about his relationship without even opening up about the burial plans of his mother. Would he say he does not have money or she appeared to him in his dream to tell him when to bury her? Fans need an answer to this question.
