TAMPAN summons Actor, Yomi Fabiyi Over Controversial Movie ‘Oko Iyabo’

The Theatre Arts and Motion Picture Practitioners’ Association of Nigeria, TAMPAN summoned actor, Yomi Fabiyi over a recent movie he released titled ‘Oko Iyabo’.

The movie which has drawn a lot of heated reaction for the actor tells the story of fellow actor Omiyinka Olanrewaju also known as Baba Ijesha who is currently battling a sexual assault case.

The letter of summon which was signed by Yemi Amodu, TAMPAN’s Director of Research and Documentation said the invitation became necessary because of the controversy the movie has generated.

The letter read: “The TAMPAN Committee on Ethics, Conflict and Resolution wishes to inform the general public that the association has summoned Mr. Yomi Fabiyi who is the Producer/Director of the controversial film titled “OKO IYABO” to appear before it on Thursday 11th July 2021.

“This invitation becomes very necessary because of the controversy that the subject matter of his film has generated which is against our ethic and virtue.

Despite that, we realize that the film has sparked off another round of dissension between TAMPAN and the public; this is unacceptable to us and unsuitable to what we represent.

“We hereby implore the general public and the parties concerned to please exercise patience as our eminent association is on top of this issue and will certainly ensure fairness and justice.”
