    Many have wondered why they stopped seeing actress Bola Sowunmi on popular TV series Papa Ajasco.Well known for her role as Miss Pepeye, she has revealed why she left the role, she said she quit because of a need to move forward in her career.

    A large number of Nigerians are fans of popular TV series Papa Ajasco. In fact, actors who appear on the role become very famous because of the show’s large audience.

    One of such actors is Bolatito Sowunmi who played the role of Miss Pepeye for close to eight years. She recently revealed why she stopped playing the role after such a long time.

    “There is no time ending, no stipulated time you can play the role so it is not as if I was in a contract that has a duration. As long as I am available to play the role, I play it on other interviews that I have granted I said there reason why I had to leave, I think I played the role for over 8 years. It is more about me I didn’t have any problem with the people, I just woke up one day and I was like I think you are in your comfort zone Bola you need to move forward as long you are here and you know that you already have a fixed role.

    I was not moving forward, I was not challenging myself, the role does not even challenge me anymore. I can play Pepeye even in my sleep, so I needed something that will really really challenge me and I needed to go into the Nollywood industry. It was not as if I had a contract stopping me from going into the industry fully while I am playing Pepeye but it is more about me.

    I noticed playing the role kind of did not push me forward to do other things so I told myself okay the only way you can move is to leave the good in your hand so as to get the best. So I decided to drop it besides let me give another person the opportunity to pay the role. I have been playing it for a long time now and if you remove 8 years from my age. I think I have put in a lot in it,” she told City People.

    She also added that a need to give someone else a chance contributed to her quitting the role
    “There is somebody out there too that needs the chance so I should not go and be the godmother of Miss Pepeye for ever now (laughs) so that is basically what actually happened. When I decided, I called my boss and explained to him, apart from that I was travelling a lot at that time so I was like it will be very incompetent when the call me for location and I am not available and I didn’t want to be like that. I explained to him and he was happy about it and okay with it, I don’t know about happy but I know he was okay with it and there was a consensus and I left.”
