Mr Latin reiterated that Nkechi Blessing and Iyabo Ojo are not TAMPAN members but have benefitted from the association and the Yoruba industry as a whole.

Iyabo has been very vocal since the Baba Ijesha issue, dragging and insulting people who showed any form of support for him and she did not care who got offended in the process.

Nigerians react

A lot of people were not pleased over the fact that the association took more importantly, penalising the actresses instead of facing Baba Ijesha.

Read some comments below:


"So Tampan is definitely supporting Child Molestation. Why suspend Iyabo and leave Yomi Fabiyi. On what ground was Iyabo suspended?"


"So no word on the child molester caught on cctv! You see how Yoruba elders address issues with sentiments and ignorance. They feel attacked because those ladies were brave enough highlight their hypocrisy. Very backward society."


"How about we cancel y’all and your da*mn movies??"


"I lost my respect for the yoruba movie industry today and forever. You all messed up in this case, you shouldn't have taking sides regardless, you are suppose to be impartial. It shows whatever you guys are acting in your movies is a lie."
