It was tears and sadness for Nollywood industry when the news that their colleague, Moji Olaiya was dead.
Her burial witnessed hundreds of her colleagues who carried sullen faces, showing how broken they were.
Her best friend, Foluke Daramola, who is yet to get over her death, in a chat with BroadwayTV, spoke about their relationship, the dream she had that Moji only pretended to be dead and a scholarship program that has been put in place for her kids.
Moji is my colleague, my friend, she had turned to my sister because we are very very close. She’s one person that is very dear to me. I would say it was through me that God used her to start acting because I was the one that told her about the audition for Superstory after she told me she wanted to go into acting.
We share a lot in common. Moji taught me how to save. She taught me because she is a detailed and finicky person. I’m still using her is, because, to me, I don’t feel she’s dead. We travel together most of the time. We travel to the UK, we travel to Dublin.
Ever since Moji died, I’ve not been able to sleep. I always think about her every night. About three or four days ago, I saw her in my dream. It was as if they brought her back and they were waking her up, she now woke up and said, “Foluke.”
I now said, “Moji, didn’t you die?” she now said, No, that she just went to see how much everybody loved her. I now said that “I didn’t know that I love you this much until I heard that you had died.” When I woke up, I was devastated and I started crying because I wish it was like that.
She was a very important part of my life that I can never forget in a hurry. She knew that anyway. She was the best friend that I had in the industry.
