In an interview with BBC Yoruba, Olaiya was grateful to God for sending helpers his way and also giving him a second chance at life. Many did not believe he would survive, and there were even death rumours. But he did. God saved him and granted him healing.

He revealed that there was a miscommunication by the press about his death, that he was then battling with kidney stones. The veteran Nollywood actor is now one hundred per cent healthy and is fit enough to continue in the entertainment industry.

Olaiya continued saying that his escape from death could be likened to a Dog that entered Lion's den and was able to make it out alive.

He further added that after the diagnosis he was advised by the Doctors to have surgery so the stone can be removed. He was later assured by the Doctors that he will survive and eventually had the surgery at a private Hospital.
