Veteran actor Kosoko specifically noted that the industry will work against Nkechi who had an altercation with a colleague following the Baba Ijesha case.
A recent development saw the veteran actor who had threatened to frustrate Nkechi Blessing take back his words, and the actress has also apologised.
Nothing but love and respect
In a lengthy post on her Instagram page, the actress noted that she has been in confusion because she did not understand why she was blacklisted.
Blessing made sure to note that she will forever maintain her stand against assault, molestation and harassment.
She said all she did was to stand up for a minor while condemning the man who had been accused of assault.
The entrepreneur went on further to acknowledge the fact that her response to Kososko's threat was disrespectful to which she sincerely apologised.

She also noted that she had nothing but love for TAMPAN, its elders and members.
"The last couple of days has been of mixed feelings, anger, concern, disbelief, shock, and confusion. I did not get why TAMPAN directed their members not to work with me because there is nowhere that I spoke against TAMPAN, respected elders and colleagues who are their members."
