Nollywood actor Yomi Fabiyi has declared that no one will ban his newly released movie ‘Oko Iyabo’.
Fabiyi’s has come under series of backlash after his controversial movie surfaced on the internet space.
Reacting to the controversies caused by Fabiyi’s movie, the Theatre Art and Motion Picture Practitioners Association Of Nigeria (TAMPAN) summoned the actor and all actors involved, noting that the movie is against their ethics and virtue.
However, Fabiyi has said that the movie which depicted the molestation saga between actor Baba Ijesha and comedienne, Princess’s foster daughter did not undermine the victim.
Fabiyi said he pulled down the movie after backlash and lots of complaint. In a post shared on his Instagram page, the actor said nobody can ban his movie. He also addressed criticism that has trailed the use of Princess and Iyabo as names of the characters in the movie.
He wrote: “OKO IYABO MOVIE & concept is about Yomi (me) & Iyabo. I have the 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.
“They called me paedophile and rape apologist for standing by what is right. So sentiment on use of real names. It is allowed in movie making.
“The movie never undermines 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. Mo fa yin le Olorun lowo.”
