Veteran Nigerian Actress, Rachael Oniga kicked the bucket on Friday night, July 30, 2021.
The report comes as a shock to so many people, as the “Owo Blow” actress was reportedly sighted shooting film scenes in Mowe, Ogun state only a few days ago.
The entertainment industry is yet to get over the loss of the Late Sound Sultan who passed on early this month, July 2021 and now another legend is gone.
The cause of Oniga’s death is yet to be confirmed.
Rachael Oniga hails from Eku, Delta State in Southern Nigeria; she was born on 23 May 1957, in Ebutte Metta, Lagos State.
She began her acting career in 1993, shortly after her divorce. She worked briefly at Ascoline Nigeria Limited, a Dutch Consultant Company before her first movie titled Onome and her debut Yoruba movie was Owo Blow.
Over the years, Oniga has featured in notable Nigerian films such as “Sango”, Wale Adenuga’s television series, “Super story” (featuring various soap operas), “Doctor Bello”, “30 Days in Atlanta”, “The Royal Hibiscus Hotel”, “The Wedding Party”, and “My Village People” which was realeased sometime this year, 2021 before her demise.
