The Role Was Not Challenging – Miss Pepeye Explains Her Papa Ajasco Departure

Popularly known as, Miss Pepeye, raised eyebrows when she decided to leave the Papa Ajasco series. The actress whose real name is Bolatito Sowunmi in a sit down with Punch revealed why she decided to leave. According to her,I resigned from WAP because I felt that the role was no longer challenging. I had acted the role for a decade and the character, Pepeye, had to wear a lot of costumes and make-up that covered my features. A lot of people know and appreciate my work as Miss Pepeye and I have a lot of fans but they don’t know how I look. So, I noticed that the character was limiting me and I wasn’t growing. As an actor, you have to evolve. I became so comfortable with being Miss Pepeye that if you woke me up in the middle of the night, I would play the character without even looking at the script. I had to quit because the industry is highly competitive and people have to see how versatile you are. I didn’t have any quarrel with them; I resigned the proper way and asked for blessings from the chairman, which he gave me.” Photo Credit: Getty
