Bukky Wright emerges face of Fut-Conceptus
Bukky Wright is one actress we might be stuck with for the rest of our lives. She has been on the scene for over a decade and she is still very much there. Her performance in Saworo Ide catapulted her to a height untold and she became a
It was from there she became the selling face of movies both in English and Yoruba sectors. The fact that she has two kids and that Bolaji Basia, her erstwhile live-in-lover accused her of being a lesbian has not changed anything. She is still hot in demand.
Bukky is now the face of Fut-Conceptus, the largest and biggest foot and leather products manufacturing company in West Africa.
The company, which is owned by Wole Olumide Madariola, the quiet multi billionaire that came to public consciousness as a security expert, is poised takes the business of leather manufacturing to the next level.
Fut-Conceptus early this year bought Nuneco, a leading footwear company from Spain in a deal that was said to be worth several millions of dollars. The company itself is worth over a billion naira.
In a way to take the company to the next level, Madariola decided to sign a known personality as the face of Nollywood. After a serious search in which names like Omotola Jalade Ekeinde and Bimbo Akintola were mentioned, at the end, the mother of two emerged to beat the other two super actresses hands down.
And the gist is that the super cross-over actress will be walking down with a multi-million naira contract. Her face will be on every advertisement that will spread as far as all West Africa regions.
Though we have seen her face on the advertisement of Harpic and Hollandia milk, this deal is worth far more than any deal she has ever done.
Bukky was not available for comments when we called her mobile number.
From the grapevine, we understand Sound Sultan is already confirmed as the male face for the foot wear.
Other top personalities that are on the list of the manufacturers are John Fashanu, Jay Jay Okocha and a yet to be disclosed young and beautiful lady.
The photo shoot for commercial would commence soon.
