A 70-year-old Nigerian woman, Alhaja Oluwatoyin Bucknor, who gained notoriety for chasing guests away from her party in the UK due to an asoebi dispute, has publicly apologized for her actions
In a video that has since gone viral, the woman offered her heartfelt apologies to those who were offended by her previous behavior.
The incident had initially unfolded at a gathering held in the United Kingdom, where Alhaja Oluwatoyin Bucknor was hosting a party.
In the now-famous video, she was seen passionately confronting and ushering guests out of the event, apparently triggered by a disagreement over the traditional asoebi attire.
In the newly surfaced video, Mrs. Bucknor, speaking in Yoruba, explained her side of the story.
She clarified that her anger had stemmed from the unexpected presence of certain individuals at the event whom she had not personally invited.
These individuals had reportedly purchased the asoebi attire associated with the party.
However, upon discovering their attendance, Mrs. Bucknor asserted that she promptly refunded their money for the asoebi, as she did not intend for them to be part of the celebration.
Despite the refund, the uninvited guests insisted on attending the event against her wishes.
In her apology, Alhaja Oluwatoyin Bucknor expressed her regret for the way she had handled the situation, acknowledging that her actions may have offended some of her guests.
She pleaded for forgiveness from those who were hurt by her behavior. Additionally, Mrs. Bucknor extended her heartfelt wishes for longevity and prosperity to all her guests, expressing her hope that they would live beyond their 70s and even reach their 80s.
The video of Alhaja Oluwatoyin Bucknor’s apology has elicited mixed reactions on social media, with some commending her for owning up to her mistakes and seeking reconciliation, while others continue to debate the appropriateness of her initial actions.
