Popular Yoruba movie/ music marketer, Gbenga Adewusi, has come under fire for promoting a new DVD titled “Moji Olaiya Canada to Grave” on Instagram.
Mr. Adewusi, who is also the CEO of Bayowa Films Production, has also been hit with backlash from his over 20,000 Instagram followers after he posted the picture of the DVD cover on his Instagram handle with the caption: “Moji Olaiya Canada To Grave! Movie Clips with Tears of Sorrow. Femi Adebayo, Ronke Oshodi Oke, Muyiwa Ademola and others in Pains.”
The post has sparked a heated debate on Instagram as many find it disrespectful to the dead. The online debate prompted Mr. Adewusi who is popularly called Bayowa to make his Instagram page private.
Defending his action, he said the movie was not for sale but only meant for his company’s website. Many doubted his excuse because it contradicted the promotional caption on the post.
This has led to talks that he is only trying to make money from the late actress’ untimely death. Moji passed away on May 17 after suffering a cardiac arrest in Canada. She had only been delivered of a baby girl two months earlier. She was buried on June 7.
