The beef that turned the two actresses against each was believed to have stemmed from when they, at different times, dated gospel singer Sammie Okposo.
Among the tons of birthday wishes that former Nollywood's best, Stella Damasus received on Monday, April 24, one stood out – it brought tears to her eyes.
Damasus had turned a year older and it was the perfect day for actress Kate Henshaw to send her an invitation for truce – 'old beef has passed away' message.
The two, who used to be friends, had gone their separate ways after a brawl severed what was left of their relationship.
The beef that turned them against each was believed to have stemmed from when they, at different times, dated gospel singer Sammie Okposo, whose career was at its peak, with many women at his beck and call.
Kate took to Stella's Instagram page on Monday, acknowledging that with old age comes maturity and a zero stomach for frivolities.
"The older one gets, the more you do away with frivolous things. We have had our share of "battles"..yes but nevertheless we have come a long way. Through the highs and lows. The past is behind us," Henshaw wrote.
In her response, a teary Damasus admitted to being 'childish' when they were at war with each other.
"You just brought tears to my eyes. I love you so much and I know that deep down you know. You are right. I have also been silly and childish but thank God for growth and maturity. You have been the most supportive and most caring. You go above and beyond for everyone else. I remember when we had an issue long ago, you still came to Asaba for my dad's burial…", the emotional birthday girl replied.
Damasus has since relocated to the United States where she lives with her husband, Daniel Ademinokan, a movie director and ex-husband of actress Doris Simeon.
