Eddie Nartey reveals what killed his wife

Ghanaian actor and director Eddie Nartey has revealed the cause of wife’s death.

According to the ‘Adventure of Anansewaa’ famed actor, his wife who had been unwell for a very long time died of lupus.

“She was not well, she was sick. It was a very tough time…It was not something that was out there, it was not something even my friends knew about. It was a struggle I carried on my shoulders. She was also a private person, she was so unwell… She had lupus, something that affects your organs. For her, she suffered from kidney failure,” he sadly recounted.

The actor confirmed the passing of his wife, on January 25 in an Instagram post.

“I don’t know what to say, I don’t know what to feel. I’m just in constant pain. Rest well my Habibi. God knows Best. I pray for strength,” the caption of a photo with the two in shot read.

His wife, Vida Obenewah Nartey, passed on two years after their wedding.

According to, Lupus is a disease that occurs when your body’s immune system attacks your own tissues and organs (autoimmune disease). Inflammation caused by lupus can affect many different body systems — including your joints, skin, kidneys, blood cells, brain, heart and lungs.
