Controversial Nollywood actor Yomi Fabiyi says no one can ban his latest movie, “Oko Iyabo” after it received negative reviews after it was released on YouTube.
Those who have watched the movie alleged that the movie mirrors the ongoing sexual molestation case between Olanrewaju Omiyinka, “Baba Ijesha” and the foster daughter of comedian, Damilola Adegbite, “Princess.”
In addition, it was alleged that a particular scene of the movie mirrors how “Baba Ijesha” allegedly molested Princess’s foster child in the viral obtained online.
However, Yomi Fabiyi says no one can ban his movie even though the video has since been removed from the video streaming site. He explained that the movie is about two adults who have different opinions on a subject matter.
His post read:
OKO IYABO MOVIE & concept is about Yomi(me) & lyabo. I have the right to write my own story.
lyabo Ojo has done many videos mentioning my full names and the videos were published on YouTube, IGT,V, etc simply because I stand for HUMAN RIGHTS, so also Princess mentioned my real names. They called me a pedophile and rape apologist for standing by what is right. So sentiment on use of real names. It is allowed in movie making.
The movie never undermines the victim or any girl child, someone twisted that so they can make you react. Most commenting did not see the FULL MOVIE beforejudgmentt. Mo fa yin le Olorunlowo.
I hand you all to your consciences and God.
No amount of all these can pull me down.Advertisement
AND NOBODY BANNED MY MOVIE. We private it deliberately just to give room for calm. At some point OKO IYABO MOVIE will be released on DVD, YouTube and others. You can’t abort an already born baby.
Censor’s board will rate OKO IYABO when I apply and everybody will enjoy the movie soon because it is about two young actors, Yomi & Iyabo fighting on a case from different angles and personalities.
The movie has enough messages. MY FULL V RESPONSE TOMORROW
