Close friends of Nollywood actress, Moji Olaiya, have confirmed the passing on of the 42 year old mother of two children in the early hours of Thursday, May 18, 2017, in Canada.
Actress and entrepreneur, Bisi Ibidapo-Obe, told encomium.ng around 11 am, that her close friend has passed on.
When we called the mother of Senator Dino Melaye’s daughter, she said: “Are you calling in respect of what happened?”
We answered, Yes. “It is true. Moji Olaiya is dead. She died in Canada.”
We asked further, I was told she died during childbirth. She replied, “No. She gave birth two months ago… l can’t talk now. I am very sad.”
Encomium.ng also called another actress, Funke Etti, around 11.06 am. And she also confirmed the death of Moji Olaiya in the early hours of Thursday, May 18.
We asked after pleasantries, Why do you sound sad? “Are you not aware of what has happened?” she retorted.
We answered, That’s why we are calling.
“My brother, it is true,” she replied. “Moji Olaiya has gone. She died early this morning in Canada… She didn’t die from childbirth complications. She had a baby two months ago.”
We continued, What really happened?
“Nothing. She was full of life. She even spoke with some people about two days ago. I was shocked to learn about her death. There’s nothing in this life. What’s the essence of all this struggle, when death can just snatch Moji Olaiya like that? After all she has laboured for. So sad.
“Death is now like pure water. Not even table water which is more expensive. May God protect the rest of us. She was such a humble and quiet woman. And also married to a quiet man. It is so unfortunate she died this soon. “
