Her death comes as a devastating loss and a massive shock to those who loved the thespian, in part because what is now Mama’s final public appearance occurred last month when actresses Joke Silva, Rita Dominic, Kate Henshaw, with a couple of other rising stars paid a visit to the 82-year-old grandmother.
The visit was part of a noble initiative to show love to industry veterans including mama, who has been in a wheel chair and away from the screens for a while due to health complications.
‘TAA with the gorgeous unassuming super-talented mama Bukky Ajayi. We went down memory lane…we laughed..we cried we prayed,’ Joke Silva said of the visit.
Meanwhile, the late actress will be buried according to Islamic rites at ATAN Cemetery by 4pm today.
