In tribute to her late colleague, Nollywood actress, Foluke Daramola, has shared this throwback photo of herself with the Late Moji Olaiya and Vivian Mitchie.
After her body was brought in to the country earlier today, friends and colleagues have trooped in to the venue of the late actress’s burial including her husband and daughter.
Among the people who showed up at the service, is Fathia Blaogun, who had words to describe the deceased.
In her words:
“ Moji loved this job a lot; she kept telling me that she had not done enough for this industry.
“She had a lot of projects pending. Giving back to the society was what Moji Olaiya had always wanted to do. And she was doing it in her own little way.
“Losing Moji in the industry for me is a minus because Moji was a fantastic and a very strong person that nobody would want to miss as a friend, sister or mother.
“We have great plans for the kids, but you know we say it and God does it.
“We pray that God will give us the strength to continue with the plans and fulfill the promises we made to the kids, but I know that they are not going to suffer.
“We actually planned this burial arrangement in one week, thanks to Asiwaju Bola Tinubu who gave us money to bring back her corpse (the precious cargo) from Canada to be buried in Nigeria.
“And I am so happy that Moji will be buried in her father’s land. It will have been sad if she was buried over there, “she said.
Adeoye Adewale, popularly known as `Elesho`, also spoke about the actress. He said:
“I felt bad when I heard the sad news of her death, it is a great loss to the entertainment industry and may her soul rest in peace, “he said.
Also, Shola Shodimu said “It’s a big loss, Moji was good, professionally she was good.
“She had so much humility around her; we are all going to miss her.
“If I should begin to itemise all I knew about her, it would be an endless miss, because she was a thorough professional.
“I can only say that God should grant those she left behind, especially, the family, the fortitude to bear the loss. It’s a big loss, “ he said.
Veteran musician Queen Salawa Abeni said,
“I felt so sad when I heard about her death, and I’m going to miss her beautiful smile.
“I pray for her mum and dad, for almighty Allah to console them. Then for the children, we need to stand up and join hands to see the children grow and succeed.
“We cannot just pay our last respect today and turn our back; I advise that we contribute toward her children and family’s welfare, “she said.
Popular Fuji artist Pasuma said:
“The last time I saw her was during one of her movie premier.
“This is a sad thing to happen and we need more prayers in the industry. We have to pray for her and her family and children.
“May her soul rest in perfect peace, “he said.
