Fast-rising comedian, Emmanuel Adigwe, otherwise known as Dâ€™lectura, is bereaved. His mother, Mrs. Theresa Adigwe, died on Tuesday at about 8.30 p.m.
A staunch Catholic Church member, the late Mrs. Adigwe, 67, died of stroke, an ailment she had been battling for some time now. She is survived by two sons and a daughter.
Dâ€™Lectura posted on his Facebook profile that â€œnow, Iâ€™m facing the greatest fear of my life; losing someone so close and dear to me. But it hurts so bad that she didnâ€™t live to fully enjoy the fruit of her labour.â€
P.M. Entertainment gathered that Dâ€™lectura travelled to his hometown in Delta State early today to deliberate with family members on his late motherâ€™s burial arrangements.
From all indications, she will not be buried immediately because Catholics do not bury the dead during lenten period.
