Now Actor, Desmond Elliot has also written a message in respect to the death of Bukky Ajayi, Continue below…

I am deeply saddened by the passing of veteran actress and broadcaster, Zainab Bukola Ajayi was an enigma and a Phenomenal Artiste.

I was awestruck by her humility when she received the Industry Merit Award at the Africa Magic Viewers’ Choice Awards in March 2016, for her impact in the creative arts industry. She was visibly emotional with tears rolling her cheeks in front of a standing ovation and thunderous applause, but she quickly recovered and eloquently said that if she had offended anyone, they should please forgive her and she had forgiven anyone that offended her. She later added “I wish I can stand up but if I do that I will fall down.”
After studying at the Stanislavsky Institute of Drama in London, Bukky Ajayi started her career as a broadcaster at Nigerian Television Authority (NTA).
From her work in television, to her acting roles in Village Headmaster in the 70s, the late Amaka Igwe's Checkmate, and to various spectacular movies, her delivery was always flawless and her work, impeccable.
She was and will always be a legendary persona in the creative arts and entertainment industry. May her blessed soul RIP.
