Idowu Phillips, an ace Nollywood actress better known as Mama Rainbow, has honoured Ayanfemi Phillips, her husband who died 37 years ago.


The movie star took to her Instagram page to pen a series of moving tributes to celebrate her late husband on Friday.

In one of the posts, Mama Rainbow recalled how Philips passed away not long after they marked their 10th wedding anniversary in the 70s.

The actress said it has been difficult coping since then, noting that the more she tries to move on, the more she misses him.
