Ayo Olaiya, son of octogenarian and enterprising high life musician, Sir Victor Olaiya, has now opened up about the accident which almost cost him his eye.
Narrating how he survived the accident,
"My auto accident story was very horrible. I was coming from a movie location at Agbado crossing area of Lagos state.
I was going for another production meeting at Agege and suddenly, a motorcycle rider crossed my car recklessly.
In an attempt to avert a head-on collision with the motorcyclist and save his life, I swerved my car off the road and accidentally rammed into an electric poll beside the road.
The impact of the smash was devastating. Immediately, I lost consciousness, only to wake up on the hospital bed after some hours.
I thank God I’m alive today with my two eyes because the accident nearly made me blind.
I was later told that a good Samaritan took me to a nearby hospital with the help of the producer of the movie I was actually going meet. He said they immediately took me to the hospital.
I can’t really remember the name of the hospital I was taken to because I was unconscious. All that matters to me then was my sight. I spent just three days at the hospital and the accident only affected my face. My sight regained strength and I can see clearly now."
Eyewitness say Ayo Olaiya, was returning from a movie shoot location before the unfortunate incident happened.
Ayo Olaiya has featured in many movies including "Jemiriye" "Seven Days", "One Cast" amongst many others, and has starred alongside top-rated actors and actresses in several movies.
