Nigerians have expressed disappointment with Nollywood actor, Yomi Fabiyi, after the release of new film ‘Oko Iyabo’ (Iyabo’s husband).

TrillerTunes understands that Fabiyi’s new film clearly depicted a case involving a fellow actor, Olanrewaju Omiyinka, fondly known as Baba Ijesha, who was accused of sexually assaulting a minor.

Social media went agog months ago after it was reported that Baba Ijesha violated the minor who is a foster child of comedienne, Princess. The likes of Iyabo Ojo and Nkechi Blessing took it personal with the suspect and his ally Fabiyi who defended Baba Ijesha head to toe.

However, Baba Ijesha was later released on bail and just a few days after the development, Fabiyi released the controversial movie.

Reacting to the movie, Nigerians on social media have slammed Yomi Fabiyi for creating such a movie and for using the names ‘Princess’ and ‘Iyabo’ to depict the real-life situation.

A tweep, @DrOlufunmilayo, wrote, “An underaged girl was allegedly raped in the past by a Yoruba actor. There’s a video proving further attempts by the same man. Yomi Fabiyi makes a movie mocking the child, her mom Princess and Iyabo Ojo the whistleblower. This is a complete utter shame to the entire Yoruba movie industry.”

Another tweep, @usmanashafe, tweeted, “A little girl was molested and one Yomi Fabiyi think it’s time to cash out with the story and then he went ahead to do a movie about it and named it ‘Oko Iyabo’. He knew some Nigerians are extremely foolish to applaud him and watch the movie and he banked on that. Shameful.”

“Yomi Fabiyi is an animal and should be treated as such. Since the day I saw him supporting that Baba Ijesha saga, I get disgusted anytime I see either him or Baba Ijesha in any Yoruba movie. What is that stupid movie?” @kankross asked.

@enythn said, “You are absolutely wrong on this one. It sounds like a mockery even if you are right in the fight that the rule of law should be respected in this country, you shouldn’t stoop so low to this level!!! Big shame on you bro!

Blaming society, @xerxesempress said, “The problem is not Yomi Fabiyi. The problem is not the Yoruba movie industry. The problem is the society in general where such a thing can happen and the person behind it can still have a career. The fact that he still has endorsements and is still allowed to act, explains a lot about us.”

Calling on all Nigerians, @adabekeeblog tweeted, “Please, simply go on YouTube and report the movie ‘Oko Iyabo’. Yomi Fabiyi is an evil man. How do you produce a movie about an ongoing rape case and paint the 14-year-old victim as a sugar baby, all to make money and shame the victim?? Nah, it can’t be well with you. Report it!!”

“Yomi Fabiyi is a colossal disgrace. This ‘Oko Iyabo’ movie he just released is a total fail. Poor acting, poor script, everything about the movie was poorly done, see the way he tried to shame Iyabo Ojo by saying she is a prostitute and did juju to become famous,” @bimbexy tweeted.

The Theatre Arts and Motion Picture Practitioners’ Association of Nigeria, TAMPAN has summoned actor Yomi Fabiyi his newly released movie which has stirred a barrage of reactions on and off social media.

TrillerTunes reports that Fabiyi came under attack on Monday after his new movie ‘Oko Iyabo’ surfaced on Youtube.

The movie clearly depicted his ally, Baba Ijesha’s rape saga which had actors taken sides monthst ago. Fabiyi’s new movie was acted with real names of those involved in the case, and also reportedly making it look like the minor was having an affair with Baba Ijesha who is now facing trial for child molestation and sexual abuse. 

Acting swiftly on the controversial movie, TAMPAN’s Director of Research and Documentation, Yemi Amodu said Fabiyi was invited because the movie has sparked off another round of dissension between the group and the public. 

TAMPAN further said that the controversy the subject matter of the movie has generated is against its ethics and virtue. Members of the public have been asked to exercise patience as ”justice will be delivered.”

The statement 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.”
