Top Yoruba actor Ayo Olaiya was involved in a fatal accident that almost caused him his life. He has finally come out to detail what exactly happened on the said day.
“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.”
Ayo who is a son of veteran musician Victor Olaiya and a brother to late actress Moji Olaiya also revealed that he spent just three days in the hospital.

“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 3days at the hospital and the accident only affected my face. My sight regained strength and I can see clearly now.”
Thank God for his life.
