After Nollywood stars attended the Service of Songs and Tribute Night held in honour of late Moji Olaiya, they all busted into tears again immediately they sighted her corpse arrive at the Ikoyi Cemetery.
The late Nollywood actress who died on Thursday, May 18, in Canada was brought back home on Tuesday evening, June 6, through the Murtala Muhammed International Airport, Ikeja, Lagos.

Before her burial, a brief prayer session was held at the cemetery’s reception having families, friends and loved ones in attendance.
We gathered that after all the prayers were done at the Ebony Vault hall, Moji Olaiya’s corpse was carried out by pallbearers. Her daughter Adunola remained uncontrollable as she watched her mother’s body being carried away.
