Nollywood actor Yomi Fabiyi has slammed the Theater Arts and Motion Pictures Practitioners Association of Nigeria, TAMPAN, saying he was never a member and was only made to pay for registration.
This is coming after the association suspended him over his movie, Oko Iyabo, which mirrors Baba Ijesha’s ongoing molestation allegation. Recall that TAMPAN had summoned Yomi Fabiyi over the movie. Showing up, the association said Yomi was not remorse for his actions, hence, the suspension.
Reacting in an Instagram post, Yomi Fabiyi drew the attention of the association to the fact that he never got any of its form not joined any guild. Stating that he is originally a member of Association of Nigerian Theatre Arts Practitioners, ANTP, he said he will rather go and renew his membership. He then added that the letter TAMPAN sent out concerning his suspension is not valid for him as a filmmaker.
“I am ORIGINALLY ANTP MEMBER, worst case I will renew my membership there. I have never obtain or sign any form with TAMPAN or joined any GUILD. I was made to pay for registration which did but no form collected or formal procedure. The letter is inappropriate, not valid for me as a Filmmaker. Any reaction if necessary will be on the basis of Human Rights Violation if I so wish to seek judicial redress. You don’t loose what you never had. – Yomi Fabiyi”, he wrote.
In another post, he then shared a sarcastic video, with a caption that he is porting to ANTP. “ANTP! PROGRESS I don port oh. Film MAKING continues. Back to our root. The ancestors and spirit of The Ogunde’s not asleep”, he wrote.
