In a statement released on Tuesday morning, the the family confirmed that Peace passed on in the early hours of Tuesday.
There was anxiety of her state of health last night after news came to town that she was in coma and her phones were switched off.
Described as an outstanding personality, trailblazer, titan, pathfinder, go-getter, humanitarian, one-of-a-kind creative, and visionary leader in the film and television industry, Peace left indelible imprints on the sands of time.
“We as a family and clan will continue do all that is necessary to ensure that her legacy lives on – the Africa Movie Academy Awards and the Africa Film Academy, along with their training programmes across Nigeria and the African continent will carry on seamlessly by institutions she set up and with the full support of the Osigwe Anyiam-Osigwe Foundation and other institutions and government agencies with whom she has worked over the years.
“Her numerous charities across different religious denominations and other communities will also be continued.
“We will miss the love and companionship we shared with her and we pray “that your Chi guide you on the path to God’s everlasting love into the light of his consciousness,” the family said.
“We also pray God our Father of all mercies to grant you eternal rest in his heavenly kingdom where his perpetual light will continue to shine on.”
