Recently, Bukola also founded the Bridge to Oasis (BTO) Foundation, which focuses on meeting the needs of Black and African seniors. She currently serves as the president and executive director of this foundation. Bukola has a caring nature, possessing empathy and compassion, and she willingly takes on roles where she can be a voice for the voiceless.
