Mrs. Keji stated that Olaiya had placed several calls from Canada in the last three days, complaining of  ‘being uncomfortable’.

The housekeeper said,

‘Her baby was born premature- her EDD was for May 2017 but complications arose that necessitated that she be induced to save the baby’s life as well as hers. But since the delivery in March, her health had not been exactly perfect’.

Mrs. Keji further exclusively informed us that around 10 pm local time (3 am Nigerian time) she went into a crisis. ‘Her blood pressure shot up and she got unconscious. An ambulance was called to transport her to the hospital. But her case worsened and she gave up the ghost before the could make it to the hospital.’

Keji who could not hold back tears continued, ‘Moji could not say goodbye to us, she didn’t let us hold her baby, where will her mother start from? Her death came too early, I believe this was not ordinary. This looks like a spiritual attack.’

It is unsure what will happen to the two month old. Olaiya’s relationship with the father of the child, simply called ‘Mr Femi’ is hazy as there as insinuations that he is still married to someone else.

The 42 year old’s death came almost exactly two years after the death of her younger brother Abidemi Olaiya who died on May 4 2015.

Her elder brother Otunba, however told us that the family had not informed their patriarch, renowned highlife muscian Dr Victor Olaiya,

‘As you know, Baba is old and it is never a good thing for children to die before their parents. We do not know how he will take it. We have to be really careful, but we are going to his Aguda residence later this evening,’ he said.
