Nigerians Come For Bayowa Films For Selling Late Moji Olaiya’s ‘Canada To Grave’ DVD

Screen-Shot-2017-06-16-at-3.35.08-AM

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.

Baby Eli dies

Eli Thompson, the baby born without a nose, dies at 2 years old

Eli Thompson, who attracted worldwide media attention after he was born without a nose, died Saturday evening, according to his father, Jeremy Finch.

Eli had turned two years old on March 4.

He was pronounced dead at around 10:40 p.m. at Springhill Medical Center in Mobile, Finch said.

Eli was "very, very bright and happy, always smiling and giving everybody fist bumps," Finch said in a phone interview Sunday morning.

He used baby sign language, and Finch was starting to do speech therapy at home with a speaking valve, he said. "His favorite sign was 'cookie,'" he said. The first thing he did every morning was to ask for a cookie, and he recently received the "Cookie Monster Award" from his daycare.

"He touched a lot of people's lives," Finch said, with tears in his voice. "A lot of people cared about him."

Eli was born at South Baldwin Hospital in Foley, then immediately transported to USA Children's and Women's Hospital in Mobile. He received a tracheotomy at 5 days old.

Through a no longer extant Facebook page called Eli's Story, thousands of people followed the tale of the baby born with arhinia, a rare facial anomaly said to affect only one in 197 million births.

When he was 7 months old, Eli met another child, Tessa Evans of Ireland, then 2 1/2 years old, who also had arhinia.


"To get to introduce Tessa to Eli was like a dream come true and it meant the world to us to sit and talk with his family," Tessa's mother, Grainne Evans, wrote after the meeting. "Tessa was totally taken with Eli and hugged him and stroked his head. Watching Eli gaze up at her was too precious for words."
