AMVCA: Bukky Ajayi Deserves More Than Just The Plaque

It was a quite a tearful moment last Saturday when veteran actress, Bulky Ajayi was announced the winner of this year’s AMVCA  Industry merit award at the AfricaMagic Viewers Choice Awards. The industry merit award was given to her alongside another veteran actor, Sadiq Daba for their contributions towards the development of the nation’s movie industry.
Standing ovation greeted the announcement of the 82-year-old  actress as she was wheeled to  the stage to receive her priceless  award.
With tears rolling her cheeks, the octogenarian actress pleaded with anyone she has offended to forgive her  just as she has forgiven anyone that has offended her. Her speech was emotional as silence enveloped the hall while it lasted.
However,  it was highly expected the plaque which was handed over to the veteran  should have being accompanied by a cheque that would put a lasting smile on her face.
Some of the young actress also spoke out on their expectation of AMVCA.  Mercy Aigbe pointed out that the organizers would have done better than just giving, such veteran just a plaque as they could have attached some other things.
Thank you multi choice for celebrating veterans! Those who paved way for people like me in this industry God bless you (thou I felt a little extra something should have been added, asides the plaque),” she wrote on her Instagram page.
