Veteran Nollywood actor, Richard Mofe Damijo (RMD) has never failed to show his love and admiration for his Diamond Ring co-star, the late veteran actress, Bukky Ajayi.
Just last week he posted a throwback picture of both of them on his Instagram page and sang her praises in his caption.
The actress passed on earlier today, a day that also happens to be RMD’s birthday.
He took to his Instagram page a few minutes ago to mourn the late Bukky Ajayi and expressed his regrets for not being with her in her last days.
Read what he said below:
Aunty Bukks, I am sorry. Sorry I did NOT visit you in your last days, not because I didn’t want to but because I took for granted the gift of life and procrastinated. To think that I spoke to Abounce kunle your son (whom I share the TV series Hush with where he is such a star now as Ruffy Jackson. Taking after you) several days ago to ask for the best time to come see you…if I knew it was time I would have come that very day to see you but who would have thought that the bold, strong Aunty Bukks who has consistently defied every circumstance and risen above every situation will go to sleep so soon.
It is my birthday today and as I sit here writing you, I can only think how ironic it is that you have completed the circle of life.
I am deeply pained by your passing but I am extremely proud that you are a part of my life and I yours.
I love you very much Aunty Bukks and will NEVER trade the memories of you for anything.
Sleep well in Gods bosom.
