•British-Nigerian TV dentist • Brain hemorrhage
Dr. Uchenna Okoye, a British-Nigerian celebrity TV dentist, has tragically passed away from a brain bleed after collapsing at her residence in London.
Her grieving family expressed their profound sorrow, stating that they are devastated that her vibrant life was cut short.
Dr. Uchenna's personal assistant and close confidante of over two decades, Mars Webb, revealed that her loved ones are still grappling with the shock of her sudden demise and are awaiting the coroner's report to confirm the exact cause.
According to reports from Mail Online, Dr. Uchenna's cause of death was a subarachnoid haemorrhage, a condition resulting from bleeding in the space between the brain and its surrounding membranes. This bleeding was triggered by a ruptured blood vessel, known as an aneurysm, which can occur without apparent warning.
A spokesperson for the family stated, "Dr. Uchenna's untimely passing was due to natural causes. We are heartbroken that her vibrant life was cut short. Our current focus is on caring for her young daughter, preserving her legacy, and ensuring her memory lives on. A private celebration of her life will be held in the coming weeks."
Ms. Webb disclosed that in the days leading up to her passing, Dr. Uchenna had a typical and busy week. She attended a theater performance of Moulin Rouge in the West End, had a lunch meeting with clients to promote her new Mysmile dental product, and participated in an industry event. At no point during these activities did she express any health concerns.
