WHY I DIDN’T SUPPORT MY DAUGHTER INITIALLY —DR. VICTOR OLAIYA
One of the most promising actresses in the movie industry, Moji Olaiya, is the beautiful daughter of highlife music maestro, Dr. Victor Abimbola Olaiya. But unknown to many who admire the actress, at the initial stage of her career, the music legend did not support her foray into moviedom.
Although it is now a different story entirely, not only because Moji is now famous and financially comfortable, Dr. Olaiya believes his decision then was what any reasonable parent would have taken.
“Even when I wanted to go into music in those days, my parents disagreed. So what they did to me was what I also did to my daughter, Moji.”
“Although I can't choose for her, I had to let her understand certain things about the industry and life in general. And I thank God, that has really gone a long way to make her what she is today,” Dr. Olaiya said.
Speaking further on the satisfaction he derives when watching any of Moji's flicks on television, he said, “I'm always happy and fulfilled. That was how my parents too were happy when I eventually became a music star.”
