Veteran Nollywood actress, Bukky Ajayi, passed away today, July 6, 2016.
A source confirmed to The Punch Newspaper that she died an hour ago, however, refused to give further details at this time.
She died at the age 82.
While the cause of her death is yet to be ascertained, previous reports may have suggested that she died after a battle with heart-related issues.
It would be recalled, in March 2016, the late veteran was honoured with the ‘Industry Merit Award’ at the Africa Magic Viewers Choice Awards (AMVCA) with a standing ovation.
After the standing ovation, she hilariously said:
“I wish I could stand up. But if I stand up I will fall down. Are you all standing for me? Thank you. I am very very grateful to you.”
