She may not be a popular face to Nollywood movie lovers nationwide but she was once an actress before getting married.
Information coming from Rivers State chapter of Actors Guild of Nigeria disclosed that Ijeoma Okorie NOT Angela Okorie passed away in the wee hours of Sunday February 2nd, 2014 in the labour room while delivering her twin babies.
