While expressing displeasure at the expensive rumour, Bamishigbin hoped that this is a sign that the actress will live longer. “It is unfortunate that some people somewhere are just spreading misleading information. But I pray that God will turn it into a positive one for Bukky Ajayi. She will live longer,” he said.

On Monday, the aged actress debunked the death rumour in a phone chat with P.M.NEWS Nollywood Reel. She therefore urged her fans to ignore the rumour.

“I was surprised to hear the rumour as well. About four people had called me concerning this issue, but I didn’t take it seriously until my daughter and her husband also called. I’m hale and hearty, and nothing is wrong with me,” Mama, as the actress is fondly called, said.

She explained that “if it was when I was ill, perhaps, I won’t be surprised. But I’m  okay now, that’s why I’m wondering where the rumour emanated from. ”

Following a successful premiere in Ghana, House of Gold, an Yvonne Nelson production, has made an entry into Nigerian cinemas with an impressive premiere that attracted celebrities and hundreds of Nigerian movie enthusiasts.

Amid glitz and glamour at the Silverbird Galleria, Victoria Island, Lagos, the movie, during screening was greeted with laughter and cheers by the audience. The film is filled with witty dialogues and hilarious scenarios.

Directed by Pascal Amanfo, the movie tells the story of the children of Dan Ansah Williams, a high flying entrepreneur, business mogul, polygamist and socialite, who is battling with cancer and has six weeks to live. With the help of his long time associate and legal representative, he embarks on a mission to re-call all his children  home. Most of the children were born out of wedlock.

Dan’s last wish is to have his children all under one roof for seven days so that they will get to know one another and to be bonded together as one family. However, the reunion proves a little more than everyone bargained for as each child indeed returns with an agenda and this sets the stage for the most hilarious and bizarre seven days of their lives.

House of Gold, produced by Media GH, stars Yvonne Nelson, Majid Michel, Eddie Watson, Luckie Lawson, Umar Krupp, Omawumi Megbele, Mercy Chinwo and Ice Prince Zamani.
