Nigerians slam Bayowa Films for selling late Moji Olaiya’s ‘Canada To Grave’ DVD

Moji Olaiya

What the? No respect for the dead? That's the question Nigerians are asking the movie producer. Barely one month after her sudden death in Canada, Moji Olaiya‘s colleagues in the Yoruba film industry are already cashing in on her demise by selling DVD’s of her funeral. While some may argue that it’s not a bad idea. The title they chose will leave one confused as to the real intentions. Canada to Grave? The documentary’ is sold and distributed by Bayowa Films, owned by Gbenga Adewusi who was a big movie maker in the 90’s and the early 2000’s. It is therefore strange, to say the least, that very little thought went into the making of this ‘project’.
Why on earth did they think ‘Canada to Grave’ was an appropriate title? Did anyone consider the feelings of her old mother and her young daughters before throwing this out into the market? It is indecent and quite frankly, tasteless.  Why on earth?
