RMD who was a year older on Wednesday apologized for not visiting her in her last days.

According to him, he took for granted the gift of life by procrastinating.

Bukky Ajayi was a widely respected actress in Nollywood. On June 15, 2016, a group of Nollywood actors paid a visit to the veteran actress at her home.

On Saturday, March 5, 2016 at the fourth edition of the Africa Magic Viewers Choice Awards, AMVCA,  the veteran received an "Industry Merit Award."

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. #GreatLoss
