Moesha Star Yvette Wilson Dies Aged 48

Urban Hollywood is in mourning today following tragic passing of actress Yvette Wilson – aged just 48.

Wilson, who made her name playing Andell on sitcoms ‘Moesha’ and ‘The Parkers’ had been battling cervical cancer, sadly succumbing early this morning.

Her passing sees her join the unfortunate list of  ‘Moesha’ talent’s whose lives were cut short entirely too soon. Lamont Bentley – who played Hakeem – died following a car crash in 2005, while Merlin Santana -who played recurring character Ohagi – was shot dead in 2002.

Our sincerest thoughts and prayers go out to Wilson’s family during this trying time.

Your thoughts?
