On May 17, 2017, Nollywood practitioners woke up to the shocking news of the death of actress Moji Olaiya who passed away in far away Canada.

In less than an hour after the news spread, a huge crowd had besieged her Magodo house as many couldn’t believe the news that was filtering in.  The mother of two had passed away just two months after she gave birth to her second daughter.

The disbelief soon turned into overwhelming sorrow when it was confirmed that the 42-year-old mother of two had indeed passed away.

Moji Olaiya was a great role interpreter who was lucky to have been discovered by her uncle, Victor Olaiya who adopted her and fine-tuned her talent, which eventually turned her into a celebrated actress.

As a friend and a mother, she was irreplaceable. Her daughter once described her as the most unique best friend anyone could have, while her friends described her as quiet and easygoing.

The consoling truth about the death of the seasoned thespian who gave over a decade and a half of her life to fuel her passion in acting, was the army of friends and well wishers who stood up for her even in death-As her remains stormed Nigeria from Canada, one could bet that she smiled from the clouds because it was certain her legacy and all that she worked to build were not in vain.

Moji Olaiya is survived by her aged mother, siblings her two daughters – one aged 20 and the other only One year old – who she had gone to Canada to deliver.

Popular Nigerian singer and songwriter, Simi has penned a beautiful letter to her daughter, Adejare as she turns 6-months-old.

November 30 marked six months since the singer and her husband, Adekunle Gold welcomed their little platter of feet. Taking to her Instagram page, Simi posted an adorable photo of her herself and her daughter along with the lovely message.

The first time mum noted that she is excited for her daughter to grow up so they can do fun stuff together.

In her words;

“My baby. My daughter. The love of my life. This feisty little chocolate princess is 6 months old today. God is so great.

You make me giddy Adejare. You changed my life and turned my Spirit inside out. Giving you life (in collaboration with God and your daddy) gave me new life, and is the most spiritual thing I ever did in all my life. You’re everything to me. I’ve never felt a love so complete and thorough and protective and jealous and unconditional. They tell you you’re gonna love your baby so much, but you don’t know how much until you love your baby.

I’m emotional because you’re growing up too fast and some days I want time to freeze, so I can soak up more of these moments, but I’m also excited for you to grow up so we can have cute, silly conversations. So we can go on mommy/daughter dates. So we can have slumber parties. So you can confide in me. So we can pray together. You’re everything I asked for, and then so much more. You complete our little family. Thank you for your gummy smiles and for all the words you think you’re saying. I hear you. I love you too much Deja. Happy half birthday

– Mommy”
