Barely a 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 (and even I can preempt them by claiming proceeds will go
to a charity for her children); the title they chose will leave you
scratching your head: 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.
