Nollywood actor Yomi Fabiyi has come under fire from many celebrities and fans over his latest movie; Oko Iyabo.
The movie was an attempt to document the sexual assault of a minor saga involving fellow actor, Olanrewaju Omiyinka popularly known Baba Ijesha. It used the real names of Iyabo Ojo and others involved in the case, and made it look like the minor was having an affair with Baba Ijesha.
Oko Iyabo was however taken off YouTube after outraged movie fans mass reported the movie for degrading a minor. Fabiyi, whose reputation had suffered a hit for supporting Baba Ijesha further suffered more vitriol.
On air personality, Dotun while reacting to the movie described Fabiyi as a shameless idiot with a premium class of clout chasing. He wrote on his Instagram – “This Yomi Fabiyi is a shameless idiot. This is the premium class of clout chasing. You can’t ever be this inhumane to prove a point that clearly stinks. You degraded a child to make a movie.”
He added; “such a mess. If TAMPAN let’s him release that movie then they are equally as irresponsible”
Actress Nkiru Umeh blasted Fabiyi and said everyone should be happy the actor is not one of their family member. She said, “Just incase you are in search of a reason to thank God. Just thank him that Yomi is not your family member”
While actor Bola Ninolowo issued strong-worded crticism at the actor and threatened to go physical with him. “MUTHAFUCKER ni motherfucker yi mehn!! I loose manners on this motherfucker @realyomifabiyi Agbalagba oponu ni eh! If you go like respond to me, abeg lets make it in person fucker! On Apologies to my fans and kids postdeleteonehourforthefucker” he wrote on his Instagram.
Actress Bimpe Oyemade in her reaction claimed that she is ashamed of the actor and accused him of frequently bullying her because she refused his sex advances. “The major reason is because I didn’t make myself available for his sexual needs despite how much he tried,” Bimpe wrote.
Meanwhile, the Theatre Arts and Motion Picture Practitioners’ Association of Nigeria, TAMPAN on Monday summoned the actor over the controversial movie.
The association in a statement by its Director of Research and Documentation, Yemi Amodu, said it invited the actor because the movie has sparked off another round of dissension between the group and the public.
