The sudden death of Nollywood star, Moji Olaiya, has heightened the fear in the industry, especially in the Yoruba sector where three famous practitioners died in succession in the last four weeks. This, encomium.ng gathered, is causing serious concern in the industry as many actors have started contacting their spiritualists.
First to bid this sinful world farewell was veteran actor, Olumide Bakare, 65, who died after a protracted ailment. He died of heart and lung related disease on April 22. Another renowned film maker, Adesina Adesanya (Pastor Ajidara) also passed away on Saturday May 6, 2017. He was said to have died of kidney failure at 63.
However, as if it was an harvest of death in the last few weeks in the industry, another top shot in the industry, Moji Olaiya, also bowed out of this world. Her sudden death seemed more painful than any of the previous ones being the youngest of them at 42.
One of the actors who spoke to encomium.ng under the condition of anonymity said, “Truly, everybody in the industry is panicking now. No one knows who’s next. If Moji Olaiya could pass on just like that, it can be anybody tomorrow. One needs to be very prayerful now. If it involves consulting your pastor or alfa, please do if only to keep you alive until God’appointed time because what’s happening now is beyond human knowledge.
“If you look at it, we have lost three stars in less than one month. That alone should give us a serious concern. But at the same time, let’s leave everything for God. He is the only one that knows best. Moji’s death is so socking and painful. It will be difficult to forget.”
