Preparation to give late Moji Olaiya a befitting burial is now in top gear from all angles. Most family members, friends and colleagues of the beautiful thespian are now in one meeting or the other with a view to ensuring the success of the burial which has been fixed for Wednesday, June 7, 2017.
An industry source also informed encomium.ng that as part of the preparations for the burial, the branded T-Shirt will soon be out.
“Since it has been confirmed that Moji Olaiya’s body will arrive from Canada on Tuesday, June 6, 2017, some of her colleagues and friends have started meeting again for her burial which will hold on Wednesday, June 7, 2017.
“I learnt the T-shirt for the funeral will soon be out. I think it’s an initiative of Moji’s family and some family friends. I learnt it’s going to be sold for N1,500. That’s what all her friends, family and colleagues will wear on Tuesday for the Artiste Night holding at De Blue Roof, LTV 8, Ikeja, Lagos.”
Confirming this, one of OLAIYA’S friends and colleagues, Foluke Daramola-Salako said on Friday, June 2, 2017: “Yes, it has been confirmed that Moji’s body will arrive Nigeria on Tuesday, but the actual time is what I can’t say. She would be buried at Ikoyi Vaults and Gardens on Wednesday, June 6, 2017. Preparations to give her a befitting burial are ongoing. She is going to be buried according to Islamic injunctions.”
On the funeral T-shirt, she said, “It’s true there is going to be a T-shirt for the burial and will be sold for N1,500. The initiative is not from us as burial committee. I think it is by Moji’s family but it’s open for all to buy just to honour Moji.”
