Baba Ijesha: Why I Call Out Movies Practitioners, Iyabo Ojo Speaks

Following allegation of unguided utterances leveled against Nollywood actress, Iyabo Ojo, by Theatre Arts & Movie Practitioners Association of Nigeria in relation to Baba Ijesha’s alleged defilement case, the Actress has stated reason she called out movies practitioners.

Ojo In a live video on her Instagram page, addressed her relationship with the guild and their recent interactions, especially on issues relating to the sexual assault case levelled against actor, Olanrewaju Omiyinka, popularly known as Baba Ijesha.

She explained that her reason for calling out TAMPAN was because “elders” of the association had commended her for standing with the 14-year-old girl allegedly defiled by Baba Ijesha, but when they go to movie locations, they say bad things about her.

According to her, she got to know about this from her crew members who were scattered in various movie locations.

“I have some people who have worked with me, who are still loyal to me ’cause I was never bad to any of my crew members and till tomorrow I’m never be bad to them.

“So most times when they say anything on location about me, they (the crew members) will come back to tell me,” she said.

“A lot of people I didn’t even expect in the Yoruba industry said a lot of things. When they see me, they say something else and then behind my back, they say something else,” she added.

She mentioned that even younger Yoruba actors took to social media to speak ill of her, yet TAMPAN did not call them to order.

Though she refuted being a member of TAMPAN, she pointed out that Comedienne Princess, foster mother to the 14-year-old victim, was part of the guild.

Ojo went further to state that she doesn’t have any problem with TAMPAN.

“I do not have a problem with TAMPAN. A lot of TAMPAN members are my friends and colleagues. I might not belong to the association but I am a Yoruba actress,” Ojo said.

“TAMPAN needs to go to the grassroot and attend to a lot of issues. I’m not the problem here and I have the right to say, view, or air my opinion.

“At the same time, if you people feel I have offended you in any way, I’m sorry,” she added.
