Nollywood actress Titilope Abidat Fatai has vowed never to erase late Yoruba veteran actress, Moji Olaiya, from her memory.
Explaining the reason for this, Titilope intimated that the late Moji Olaiya was very instrumental in journey to become what she is today.
According to the National Opene University in a conversation with Newsan, the late Moji funded her acting training at some point and described her as her mentor.
“I met her through one of her area sisters who happened to be my friend, so I told her I’m interested in acting and she said she will advise me to go to Odunfa. This was how she helped me to achieve my dream as an actress.
The journey has not been easy though but so far so good, we’ve been pushing it and it has been a beautiful one. I’ve featured in quite a lot of movies, i can only mention few that i can remember, such as Ronbi, Apayan, Asarailu, Omo Oloja, Pay Back, Oke Meje, Alejo and many more. To my credit, I have produced six (6) movies, Esan, Asisemi, Tumininu, Ikilo, Amoran Meta and Se Ayanmo Ni? Aunty Moji, may her soul continue to rest in peace (Amen).
She was one of the calm and loyal personalities have known in the industry. She was always ready to help and she has a listening ear. I could remember then when i went to Odunfa and she gave me N30,000 as part of the fee requested then. I pray that God rewards her kids for her good deed.Advertisement
To be honest, i was devastated when I received the news of her sudden exit. She was my mentor. It’s so painful to loose such beautiful soul around you”
