TRIBUTE TO JUDITH IKHENOSEN OMONUA AKA NUNU, CEO GHUNU EFFCECT . . She supported the launch of so many brands and was the technical adviser to many, she planned so many weddings for friends and family, travelled when necessary for all her friend’s weddings knowing fully well that it would take a toll on her health, because on her return it would land her in the hospital. . . Judith was a very active sports lady, she developed a love for badminton after her older sister @adesuwaomonua introduced her to the game, she was the female captain of Covenant University badminton team, she trained for years and excelled in the courts, only few male counterpart court match her badminton skills. . . Judith was one of Nigeria’s best makeup artist but had to give up that career when her health started declining in 2017, several hospital stays, countless injections, drips, oxygen mask marked Judith’s life from 2017 till 2020. On several occasions she passed on but our prayers brought her back, LASUTH became used to her and always reserved a private ward for her, but Judith was known to work from her sick bed, replying personal chats, posting with life support attached to her. . . Judith’s went to be with her maker Monday 27th of April 2020 at the age of 24 years on her knees praying after stylishly ensuring she sent everyone out of her room. She passed on by 3 pm, but she started preparing us from last month, and prepared us again on Sunday about her exit. . . Although Judith suffered from a heart condition she had the biggest heart, words fail me to adequately describe Judith. . . Very few people achieve in their life time what Judith achieved in her life time, she did not have any biological child (she was a very descent child), but she left us a child her brand Ghunueffect skin care, her legacy, her life work, and just like Walt Disney this child called Ghunueffect Skin care would live on. Judith might not be here with us but she left a part of herself with use, she left her intellectual property and the blue print for Ghunueffect for the next 50 years. It gives us solace to still have a part of Judith with us in her skin care products.
