At the event, Nnaji expressed gratitude to the guests. He also appreciated God for the success of the burial ceremony.


The family held a Thanksgiving service on Sunday at the St. John’s Methodist Church in Awkunanaw.

The burial ceremony — including condolences and other activities — continued on Wednesday.

Nnaji, in a statement, said his father died on March 12, 2024, at age 76.

“With profound gratitude to God for a life well lived in service to God and humanity, and in total submission to His divine will, the family of Nnaji Nwaga Nnaji Umu-Ude Agayiba Ndiagu Amaechi Awkunanaw announces the glorious transition to eternity of their brother, husband, father, uncle, grandfather, and patriarch Late Chief Amos Nnamchi Nnaji (Ezeakonaobi 1) aged 76 whose death occurred on the 12th of March 2024,” the statement reads.
