Minister mourns Bukky Ajayi, calls her an iconic thespian

The Minister of In­formation and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, has de­scribed the late Zainab Bukola Ajayi, who died on Wednesday, as an iconic thespian and a colossus of her time who has left an indelible foot­print in the country’s cre­ative landscape.
In a statement issued in Abuja and signed by the Special Assistant to the Minister, Segun Adeyemi on Thursday, the minis­ter said despite her age, it was still with a sense of sadness and great loss that he received the news about the death of the vet­eran actress and broad­caster.
He described the late sage as a multi- creative person who started off her career as a television presenter and news read­er before taking to acting, where she excelled.
‘’Her journey in the Ni­gerian creative industry spans decades of amaz­ing performances in clas­sic productions such as the unforgettable ‘Village Headmaster’ and a num­ber of critically-acclaimed stage and screen produc­tions like ‘ThunderBolt’, ‘Oduduwa’ among others.
‘’Her name will be etched in the minds of her colleagues and fans in Nollywood because of the memories she gave all of us to cherish. There is no doubt that she will for­ever b
e an inspiration to generations of people in the creative industry”, the minister said. - The Authority
