Nollywood actor Yomi Fabiyi has responded to the Theatre Art and Motion Picture Practitioners Association of Nigeria (TAMPAN) request to produce his new film ‘Oko Iyabo.’
In a post on his Instagram page, the actor stated that he will honour the offer despite his original schedules before the association issued him with the letter.
@tampanglobal, many thanks for your invitation, Yomi Fabiyi wrote. I will not waste any time in reviewing my original schedules prior to receiving your message and responding with the earliest feasible time and methods of attendance. Please accept my best wishes.
NenyKo recalls that TAMPAN, in a statement, condemns Yomi Fabiyi’s new movie, ‘Oko Iyabo’ stating the actor’s invitation became necessary because of the controversy the movie has generated against their ethics and virtue.
According to the press statement, the movie producer and director Yomi Fabiyi will appear before the committee on the 11th of July, 2021.
The Statement Reads:
The TAMPAN committer on ethics, conflicts and resolution wishes to inform the general public that the association has summoned Mr Yomi Fabiyi who is the producer and director of the controversial film titled ‘Oko Iyabo’ to appear before it on Thursday 11th July 2021.
The invitation becomes very necessary because of the controversy that the subject matter of the film has generated which is against our ethics and virtue.
Despite that, we realise that the film sparked off another round of dissension between Tampan and the public, this is unacceptable to us and unsuitable to what we represent.
We hereby imply 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.
