Reports say Nigeria’s popular Nollywood actress Moji Olaiya is dead.
She was reported dead at the age of 42 years.
It was gathered that the fair-skinned actress passed on two months after she gave birth abroad.
The 42-year-old star actress was the daughter of legendary Nigerian highlife maestro, Victor Olaiya.
She welcomed her first child in Canada a few months after she officially divorced her first husband.
She was previously married to Bayo Okesola.
Her death comes as a rude shock because her last post on Instagram was less than 24 hours ago.
It read, “Allhamdulilahi to you Allah I give all the glory for all you have done. I will forever praise and worship you. It’s not by power but the Grace of Allah. Thank you for the gift of life. Thanks also to all my friends and family my fans for your supports and prayers. Love you all.”
Several reports claim she might be buried in Canada as her aged mother lives in Nigeria and it is a taboo in Yoruba land to see the corpse of one’s child.
Her shocking death has further thrown the Yoruba movie industry into mourning having lost two popular actors, Olumide Bakare, and Pastor Ajidara a few weeks apart.
