The son of late Nollywood star, Francisca Onaga, has paid tribute to his mother who died on 17 th October 2011. She was 52 years old when she passed. She was from Udi Local government area of Enugu State.
She was survived by three women and a young man, Ifeanyichukwu Jude Onaga. Talking to NEWISSUES magazine Ifeanyichukwu said it is sad that Nollywood easily forgets those who were pioneers of the industry but he understands that the industry is still growing and in the future when someone somewhere is writing the story of Nollywood, his mom, Francisca Onaga would be part of that story.
“She has earned it. The like of Sam Loco, Enebele Elebuwa, Pete Eneh, Justice Isiri will be part of the legacies of Nollywood. They inspired many and created an industry from the scratch, they just believed.”
