Canada To Grave: Why Does Bayowa Think This Is An Appropriate Title For Moji Olaiya’s Tribute?

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 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. Everyone involved with this project ought to be ashamed of themselves.
