Nollywood actress Funke Adesiyan has criticised celebrities she has called 'social media mourners' over the death of actress Moji Olaiya.

Adesiyan has spoken out against certain celebrities who only mourned the death of Moji Olaiya on social media but have not contributed a kobo to her funeral arrangements.

"Life is funny. People are really not worth the trouble. The essence of being part of an association, group et al is so you can be there for one another in matters related to you all" she wrote on her Instagram yesterday, Tuesday, May 23, 2017.

"It's really a shame that many artistes came on social media, flooded Moji Olaiya’s house shedding tears and when it boils down to extending a helping hand, many chickened out. Artistes were billed 100k each to bring Moji’s body down. If 50 of us contributes 100k, we have 5million which is about $15k (medical rate) Many didn’t contribute a penny.


"All they know how to do is flaunt wealth that they don't have on social media. The house you live in is being paid for by others, the car you drive na dash, the supposed business you own, you are not making a dime from. My sister/brother quit living large and forming rich on other people largesse. Forming oga madam on top nothing! You only have right to flaunt your own sweat. If not, siddon Jeje and make less noise, please! We don’t need to turn to beggers to help one another. We all could be one another’s helper. If you are Moji’s friend/colleague and you didn’t contribute a dime towards helping to move her down, you should take her picture down!

"Thank you to the very few artistes, socialites, friends who contributed to save the day. May God bless you all" she further wrote.

The remains of Moji Olaiya will be brought back to Nigeria by top Nigerian politician Bola Ahmed Tinubu.

Earlier reports stated that it would be Governor Ayo Fayose that would bear the cost but the story turned out to be false.
