Funke Adesiyan speaks out Against 'Social Media Mourner' Celebrities

See her post below;

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.

Its 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 dont 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.

    So, if you mourn someone, then you must donate towards their funeral expense? Abegi! People have their own bukata that they are dealing with. Especially in this current economic climate in Naija. Also, why fly her body down if the family can’t afford it?

      They could have flown her daughter to Canada to pay last respect to her mother since they are claiming she is the one that wants her flown back. I don’t know when an 18 year old non incoming earning small child started making such demands.

      Don’t mind this illiterate runs woman. How is mourning now dependent on how much you can donate? Why should people be forced to donate? Do you know each persons capability? I hear the yoruba actors get paid peanuts so, where are they supposed to get 100k each from? This old woman is delusional. She is using this persons death to shade her perceived enemies. Foolish woman. They have now turned Moji’s demise to competiton of who can donate the most. Moji did not impregnate hersself, where is the father of the baby, his relatives, friends, her family, friends? Collegues owe you nothing afterall, they did not send you to Canada.

      The most foolish outburst l have seen so far is this one and that of that Salako man – horseband to the lady with big boobs(sorrry l cannot remember her name now) Talking trash about Gov. Fayose not flying her corpse back to Nigeria! Does Fayose owe any body that? Noo. Should Tinubu be praised for paying for her corpse to be flown back? NOOO. Tinubu and co are the problem. If there is good health care in Nigeria will she go to canada? Instead of cursing all past and present leaders the foolish man and his ilk are praising Tinubu.

      By the way, Is Moji the first actor to die in the yoruba caucus? Did Ajidara not just die? Was anyone forced to donate? Why this hulabalo this time around? Why are people being compelled to pay money they do not have? This woman is an IDIOT.

      BN, pls. publish the piece by Yomi Fash Lanso on this subject of entitlement. So far, he is the only one that makes sense.

      This woman here is another Yoruba nonsense. Aso Ebi for everything. Licking the ass of people in power and demonstrating crass ignorance. I am Yoruba by the way.

    I can’t wait to start seeing the funds thief thief reports. This one that they are vexing that people are not donating…

  3. They shouldnt turn this to a drama tho. Sigh

    What she said makes sense. They created an association in order to help one another and the association isn’t effective. The “public audience” have been complaining constantly that all these actors are always begging for help from the public when they are ill. The same public audience insisted they learn to sort it amongst themselves and what this lady is saying is the exact same as what the public have been insisting on. As for the economy….if it is so bad why are the so called actors busy flaunting their so called successful businesses and material gains on IG. The lady knows the people she is shading. I do agree with her that if the members of the association contribute in bits, they will easily sort out the money without help from the general public or a politician. It doesn’t have to be #100k, it can be #5k from as much of them as they can get. Even if it is $10k they can raise and they are searching for the remaining $5k that is still sensible. As for her daughter’s wish…we are not in her shoes, so it is insensitive to speak that way about her. It is her wish. It might be granted and made possible or not. But so far, it seems God has raised someone to help make her wish come true. May God do same for us all.

    May the dead’s soul find rest in the Lord.

    The lesson that should be learnt from this unfortunate incident is that Nigerians should not travel abroad to deliver babies without adequate money and information. I suspect that the deceased didn’t go through the right channels to have the baby, possibly went to deliver as an emergency patient rather than a proper patient with health insurance. Otherwise, her health issue would have been picked up and treated immediately after delivering. For example in the U.K., the health visitor would check on the mother and child regularly to monitor them and refer them accordingly. The fact that her condition had deteriorated and had to be rushed to the hospital as an emergency patient, two months after delivering confirms my suspicions.

    May the soul of the deceased rest in peace. While i feel the pain of the family, friends and fans on the demise of ‘our celebrity’, Nigerians should learn to differentiate between PRIMARY and SECONDARY needs. Calling for help for meeting or facing the consequences of secondary needs is selfish. Going abroad to birth is a secondary need! Are you asking bunch of other actors who had their own kids in Nigerian hospitals to vomit 100k? Are you kidding me?

    Sis you really spoke well.. the celebrities need to do something on this their begging acts and it shows that there is no love in TAMPAN and shows clearly that they are living fake lives. Pls tell them to set their records straight and show love to themselves while alive and death

    Just because she is 18yrs old does not mean she cant request that her mom be buried in Nigeria where she was based. Its her mom afterall and she didn’t ask for financial help. People out of good heart did it.
    How will you want her to fly to canada whenever she feels like oh i want to pay my respects to my mum at her graveside? If people are willing to help her make her wish come through why not?
    She also has a 2months old baby,wont she be flown to Nigeria as well?
    Please put yourself in people’s shoes before saying things.

    i do believe friends and family should contribute, but contribute what they can afford. you don’t make demands by analysing everyones pocket size.
    thats why life insurance is important so it’ll cover things like funeral costs.

    I totally agree with Funke. what is the use of an association if they cannot come together to help one of their own? It is sad that they always have to beg for help whenever there are issues like these.

    What you wrote is not only wrong but it is laced with assumptions. Anyone anywhere (she was said to be hypertensive) can die of a cardiac arrest and she is no exception… she was well and posted on social media a day or two before her death. Make your point without having to “confirm” what you dnt know!

      And that is why she would have been paid special attention if she had medical insurance. Most of these advance countries will just give the minimum care that will sustain you in an emergency situation but will not go out and beyond. If she became hypertensive after being pregnant and had to deliver the baby prematurely that is mostly likely eclampsia which needs adequate attention and follow ups after the birth.

    Well said.. Where are those people calling Fayose names? If d husband, fellow actors, different Yoruba groups which I am sure she belonged to one, cannot contribute & give her a befitting burial, some people are there blaming only one person for not using tax payers money. Give a dog a bad name…..It baffles me! R.I.P to d dead.

    I thought they said Tinubu has paid. What are they contributing again?

    Some people failed to understand Funke Adesiyan’s point. She wrote to refer to the attitude of her colleagues in the entertaining industry. That most colleagues failed to responds to the contribution towards assisting in transporting back home their colleague corps. My own question is this, is there provision for assisting any member in any difficulties, and is every member pay their dues as at when due to the purse of the Union? If so, it is the duty of the Union to take up the responsibility whenever any member is in difficulty.
