Since Bukky Arugba wonderful performance in the movie, ‘Arugba,’ directed by the iconic filmmaker, Tunde Kelani, over a decade now, actress Bukky Awoyemi, popularly known as Bukky Arugba, still remains Nigerians’ screen goddess on the silver screen until 2014 when she had her first scandal as a movie actress.
It was stated that Bukky snatched her actor hubby, Damola Olatunji, from another woman.
But in a private chat with Saturday Beats, the mother of twins said that it was the most trying time of her life.
“People do not know the true story of an event but they just conclude and pass judgment. It was not easy for me back then because it was my most challenging moment in life. I am a very quiet person and it was a very gloomy period of my life but I thank God it is over. It was just the grace of God that kept me through that period and I would not want to comment further on that issue,” she said.
The actress who is now on her groove and returned to grace the silver screen told Saturday Beats how her hubby reacts when another man kisses her on set. She said,
“I am a professional so I don’t feel anyhow when I see him kiss another woman but as for me, I really don’t like doing things like that in a movie. But when I don’t do it well, my husband criticises me. He would tell me that I have to make it real. He would say that if I don’t do it well, it would not be real enough.
“Whenever my husband is working on any project, he shows me the script first because I would analyze it thoroughly and objectively. I am always honest with my opinion about his work because no one can tell him the truth like I would. He knows that I would not be biased.”
Bukky further spoke on how she was able to handle the female fans flocking around her husband spell based on his acting.
“We both don’t get jealous when we are with our fans or admirers because it is something we had been experiencing even before we got married. Of course, they would not take him home after they are done talking with him or taking pictures with him,” she said.
