A close relative has revealed some previously unknown details of how veteran actress, Bukky Ajayi died on Wednesday.
According to the relative, Bukky Ajayi had stopped eating and talking on Monday.
“Mama stopped eating and talking to us since Monday. Nothing we did could get her to eat,” the family member said shortly after Ajayi’s burial at the Atan Cemetery, Ikoyi, Lagos.
It was also revealed that the actress became too weak to do anything just before the time she died.
Contrary to widely held belief, the relative, who spoke anonymously, said the actress was not confined to the wheelchair before her death.
“Although Aunty had trouble staying on her feet for long, she was not confined to the wheelchair. She stood and walked occasionally but sat immediately she became too weak on her feet.”
Ajayi was believed to have lost the use of her legs following her appearance at the 2016 AMVCA in a wheelchair in March.
After collecting her Industry Merit Award, she brought some in the audience to tears when she said “You all standing for me? If I stand up, I will fall down, that is why I’m sitting down.”
