Moji Olaiya buried

Remains of celebrated actress, Moji Olaiya, were on Wednesday buried at the Ebony Vault burial ground in Ikoyi, Lagos.

Olaiya died in Canada on May 17, following what was reported to be a cardiac arrest, three months after she was delivered of a baby girl.

She was 42.

The News Agency of Nigeria reports that Olaiya’s colleagues, friends and family members wept bitterly at the funeral.

An actress, Keji Yusuf, said that Olaiya was like a daughter to her, describing her as a very good person.

“She was fun to be with. Her good smile, gentle manner and soft way of speaking would endear  her to you.” She was a nice and respectful person.’’

An actor, Muyiwa Ademola, popularly known as `Authentic’, said that Olaiya cared for everybody.

“She was a down-to-earth person. She carried people’s problems as if they were her own.”

Ademola, however, advised the family to take Olaiya’s death as the will of God, saying, “We cannot query Him.”

Others who attended the burial and paid tribute to the deceased include Fathia Balogun and Ronke Oshodi Oke.
