SHOCKING: Barely 24 hours after making a post on instagram, Moji Olaiya is reported dead
To think that she still made a post on social media barely 24 hours ago, adds more chills to this shocking news of the death of veteran Nigerian actress, Moji Olaiya. It’s sad times for her family, fans, and the entertainment industry in Nigeria.
Just few weeks after the death of two prominent Yoruba actors, Olumide Bakare and Pastor Ajidara, the very beautiful and talented Moji Olaiya was reported to have died of cardiac arrest in Canada. She was aged 42.
She made a post via one of her social media handles a little over 24 hours ago, thanking God for life and wishing her fans well. Oh! How sad!.
Moji, daughter of Nigeria’s high life music legend, Victor Olaiya, was confirmed dead two months after welcoming her second child whom she had with her new husband, in Canada. She recently remarried last year at a quiet ceremony in Nigeria.
She became more popular with Wale Adenuga’s production Super Story in the 90’s. Before her death, she featured in several Nollywood movies of Yoruba and English genres.
A close family source claimed the 42-year-old actress might be buried in Canada as her aged mother and dad both live in Nigeria and it’s a taboo in Yoruba land to see the corpse of one’s child.
