Actress Rukky Sanda Full Biography

BIRTH NAME:          Rukayat Akinsanya

DATE OF BIRTH:    23 August 1984

OCCUPATION:       Actress, Film-Maker,Director


Rukky Sanda is a popular Nigerian actress, director and movie producer, she came into the movie industry in year 2004 while in school and has remained relevant since then. Rukky is considered as one of the youngest script-writers and film makers in Nigeria.


She was born Rukayat Akinsanya and  has lived in Lagos most of her life. She is her father’s 10th child but the last child in the family and she has two step mothers. After graduating at the Lagos State University in 2004 with a B.SC Degree in Banking & Finance, the beautiful actress began her journey in Nollywood as an actress, to an independent film producer, scriptwriter.

According to her, her attraction to movie then and now is not the same thing. At the beginning, she met her sister’s friend who used to work in a production company. She was in LASU and school was on strike so she just told her she wanted to act, her friend said let’s go, so they went. They shot the movie overnight and it was too stressful and she said she's not doing again, that was in 2004. She lost interest and she didn’t act again till 2007. "But it is different now because i actually love the art of production and creating something. It’s actually more fun for me now because now I know I have a job. I can say this is what I do, I make films." She said in her words.

Before she started acting, she knew most people in the industry. When she was in school, she used to travel and buy clothes, shoes and accessories to sell. She said she has even sold a TV before. The TV was on sale for about $700 and she brought it into the country to come and sell.

Speaking on doing business while in school she mentioned her dad gave her N500,000 when she was in her second year in the University. She told her dad she wanted to travel and start buying things to sell, so instead of going for holidays just like that, she'd come in with goods to sell.


Tell me about your name Rukky. I heard it’s short for something…
If you go to my house and you ask for Rukayat, they would probably tell you they don’t know the person. It wasn’t a name I gave myself, that is what they’ve called me since I was a child. That is what everybody knows me as, I’ve always been Rukky. Probably if I have to write my full name, I may even forget the spelling.

With benefit of hindsight, what past mistake or action will you love to correct?
Anything we do in life, we learn from it. I remember when I finished secondary school, what I wanted was to travel to America. But my dad refused. I was already in LASU, I had two very close friends of which one was in LASU; they travelled to America so I also told my dad I wanted to travel to America. My father did not even answer me until I threatened that I would not go to school again if I didn’t go to America. Yet my dad never agreed. I think it’s something I would have regretted.

How long did it take you to get into the university?
That was like immediately, most of us in my family wrote JAMB twice starting from SS 2 and then SS 3, it was like a preparation. My first admission was in UNILAG where I was studying English because Unilag resumed first, but I wanted to study Banking and Finance which I had the chance to do in LASU.

What secondary school did you attend?
I went to Lagos State Model College. That’s the same school Funke Akindele went to, her dad was the principal at the time but we didn’t know each other then.


The actress began her journey in Nollywood as an actress, to an independent film producer, scriptwriter.

Rukky Sanda now owns her production company, RSP (Rukky Sanda Productions) and RukkySandaStudios, in Lagos State, where filmmakers could rent up-to-date equipment, as well as an editing studio for post production.

Often referred to as one of the most controversial actresses in Nollywood, Rukky Sanda pays no attention to the rumors and stories, as she concentrates on carving her own unique niche in Nollywood.

Sanda has starred in over 42 movies in Africa since her debut in 2004. She could be called the youngest scriptwriter/producer in Nollywood. She has written and produced such movies as "Lethal Woman" (2008), "Obscure Motives" (2009), "LOVELORN" (2012), "MIAMI HEAT" (2012), and "Keeping My Man" (2013).

Rukky Sanda considers marriage a very beautiful thing. When it comes to relationships, Rukky Sanda believes love should not discriminate against a person’s religion. The first time she dated a male was in S.S.S 1 and this ended up being her first boyfriend. Her first real relationship was in the university and this happened in 1999 and she is usually quick to add that it didn’t work out. She was romantically linked to American singer Akon in 2007. Rukky Sanda does not believe in the practicality of ‘love at first sight’.
She is currently unmarried.

Sometime in 2014, Rukky Sanda was rumoured to have been in a sexual relationship with Tonto Dike.She reacted to this.
In her words:
“Why would I choose to be a Lesbian when they are different handsome men out there to date. I have even heard that I’m dating Tonto Dikeh, that’s absurd. Tonto is my friend and colleague, there is no sexual relationship between us. People should please stop calling me a lesbian, because I am not one.”

Dealing with controversies
You have been in the media for a number of controversial topics and I’d like you to please address them. Some media reports have alleged that you’ve had a cosmetic surgery, a face lift for instance…
In Nigeria, they don’t even know what a face lift is. It is when your skin starts to sag, they lift it up around your temples and cut the excess one off. How old am I that I would need a face lift? Someone said I had a lipo and dermabrasion. OK, I’ve done everything, I’ve even done the one they’ve not yet said.
Seriously, is that true?
You want me to tell you no?
No, I want you to tell me the truth
The truth is that I’ve never done a plastic surgery. I have nothing against it but I’ve not done anything yet. If I want to do it, it is my body and as long as it’s what I want, it’s nobody’s business.
