Since the release of the “Oko Iyabo” movie, actor, Yomi Fabiyi has been receiving backlashes from left, right and centre both from his colleagues and other concerned Nigerians.
Just recently, the Theater Arts and Motion Pictures Practitioners’ Association (TAMPAN) waded in on the controversy trailing the ‘Oko Iyabo’ movie by summoning him (Yomi Fabiyi).
However, Yomi, reacting to the summon by TAMPAN and criticisms on his new movie, took to his Instagram page and dropped a bombshell.
He wrote; “OKO IYABO MOVIE & concept is about Yomi (me) & Iyabo. I have right to write my own story.”
“Iyabo Ojo has done many videos mentioning my full names and the videos were published on YouTube, IGTV, etc. simply because I stand for HUMAN RIGHTS. So also Princess mentioned my real names.”
“The movie never undermine the victim or any girl child, someone twisted that so they can make you react. Most commenting did not see the FULL MOVIE before judgement.”
“I hand you all to your consciences and God. No amount of all these can pull me down.”
“AND NOBODY BANNED MY MOVIE. We private it deliberately just to give room for calm. At some point OKO IYABO MOVIE will be released on DVD, YouTube and others. You can’t abort an already born baby.”
“Censor’s board will rate OKO IYABO when I apply and everybody will enjoy the movie soon because it is about two young actors, Yomi & Iyabo fighting on a case from different angle and personalities.”
