Nancy Isime, the Nollywood actress, has built a six-bedroom apartment for her father and family members.
The film star, who marked her 31st birthday recently, announced the gift in an Instagram post on Monday.
Isime said building a house for her family has been one of her biggest dreams, adding that she is glad to have finally achieved it.
“Yesterday, one of my biggest dreams came to fruition. I ushered my daddy and family into their fully completed, finished, furnished 6-bedroom home and it gladdened my heart so much,” she wrote.
“I’ve been on this for years and I’m glad I could finally complete and hand the keys over. We also had a house warming party with neighbors, friends and relatives in attendance which also doubled as the part two of my 31st birthday celebration.”

In the post, the actress appreciated her father for trusting her decision to live on her own at the age of 19 despite his fears.
“Watching everyone congratulate my daddy with hugs and cheers made me grin from ear to ear. When I asked how he felt, he said ‘This has added many more years to my life’ amongst many other heartwarming words,” she added.
“This is also a way to thank my Dad for letting his 17-year-old daughter leave home daily to chase her dreams of becoming a fully independent woman.
“At 19, I told him I was ready to live on my own and even if he had fears, he let me do me with trust that I won’t bring shame to the family. Thirteen (13) years later, I’m happy I get to also fulfill one of his Life Long Dreams.
“I’ve prayed, envisioned and manifested this day into reality and I couldn’t be more grateful to God.”
The TV host also said her decision to share the news on social media was to motivate other young ladies.
“I’ve deliberated posting this for a bit but I happen to be followed by many young girls/persons who can relate to my story so much and are probably in a stage in their lives where they’re wondering if all the hustle will pay off,” she wrote.
