Nigerian-British actor Wale Ojo, who recently won the Best Actor award at the Africa Magic Viewers’ Choice Awards (AMVCA), has lost his mother. He announced the heartbreaking news of his mother’s passing on Instagram.


Ojo, renowned for his role in the Nigerian drama film “Breath of Life,” expressed his deep sorrow in a post on Saturday.


“My world has crashed all around me. Mama is gone. Goodnight Mum. I will miss you terribly,” Ojo wrote, sharing his grief with his followers.


At the AMVCA, Ojo’s performance in “Breath of Life” earned him the Best Lead Actor award, triumphing over fellow nominees Stan Nze, Marc Zinga, Gideon Okeke, David Ezekiel, Richard Mofe-Damijo, Adedimeji Lateef, and Gabriel Afolayan.


Ojo’s journey into acting began with his breakthrough role in the 1995 film “The Hard Case.” Since then, he has appeared in numerous Nollywood and British productions, including “Phone Swap,” “Half of a Yellow Sun,” and Apple TV’s “Foundation.” He received his first acting award at the Nigeria Entertainment Awards in 2012.


Born in Nigeria, Ojo later moved to England with his family, where he attended university. He often credits his successful acting career to his mother, who was also an actor and a significant influence in his life.
