In a series of musings going on and surrounding the death of the delectable Nollywood actress, Moji Olaiya, it is understandable that emotions are running wild.
Bose Olubo, in a writeup she titled Oluwalogbon (Divine knowledge abides only with God) has this to say:
Its a big lie to say that we did not contribute
We did, we taxed ourselves immediately and some of us have paid.
But wait, how much can we put together in few days
The burial committe really tried I have the text we circulated among ourselves
Pls stop blaming Nollywood
How many doctors contribute when a doctor is sick
How many lawyers contribute when a lawyer is dead,
Have u all forgoting we artistes have our separate companies and we run our businesses separately, we come together to interpret roles and off we go to our different homes and offices, except the once that are friends.
This is it d text we circulated
Dear colleagues, A ku oro eeyan o odun a Jina si ra. We the committee members of the burial arrangements for late Moji Olaiya decided that we in our own little way support with 100k each for the burial arrangements and support to honor our own and pay her our last respect.
This payment has to be made latest Tuesday. Thanx and God bless. Please pay into this account:
A ani fi iru e gba loruko Jesu.amin
Adeiu Adieu Adieu Mojisola Olaiya
We all know d situation of d country, how much can one really save, so if emergency arrives, its not everyone that can be able to pay within days.
I could just keep mute but we are all human.
Even we dont know on time when some of us are sick, they do not tell on time, they still try on their own until they can no longer handle it which most times are already late.
Anyway e seun gan.
Ojo a jinà sira.
