On Monday, February 2, Bukky Ajayi clocked 82-years and was hosted to a small celebration by her children at her home, in Lagos.
Mama Bukky Ajayi as she is fondly referred to studied drama at the Institute of Drama, London. She later worked a while in London before coming to Nigeria where she started a broadcasting career as an announcer, presenter and newscaster at Nigerian Television Authority. Ajayi was a part of the now rested TV series Village Headmaster. She is seen by many as a living legend of the Nigerian film industry. Despite her advanced age, she still goes on movie location. May her soul rest in peace.
