TAMPAN, Nigeria’s Theatre Arts and Motion Pictures Practitioners Association, has prohibited its members from working with Iyabo Ojo and Nkechi Blessings.
The two actors have been outspoken in their criticism of Baba Ijesha on social media, and have battled with several members of the association.
The Lagos state police arrested and detained Baba Ijesha after he was accused of sexually molesting a youngster between the ages of 7 and 14.
Despite the fact that Iyabo Ojo and Nkechi Blessing are not registered members of TAMPAN, Jide Kosoko, a member of the association’s Board of Trustees, said at a press conference on Sunday that the association would not tolerate any form of disrespect from both actresses who tried to drag the association into the mud.
Kosoko stated that the association is aware of Iyabo Ojo’s insulting words directed against the association and the industry as a whole, and that the association will not tolerate any additional insults.
“We have discipline in our local chapters. You can’t even count the number of practitioners who are misbehaving right now. We’re preparing to get a flock of black sheep. We’ll know what to do as soon as we find them,” Kosoko said.
“We have tiers on tiers on tiers on tiers on tiers on We have a chapter on municipal governance, which has a disciplinary committee and a provost.
“If the LG level is unable to complete the task, they transfer to the state with the same officials. They have the ability to take it to the national level.”
TAMPAN has previously suspended two Nollywood stars, Nkechi Blessing and Kehinde Adams, for their social media spat.
Following that, the organisation warned its members not to do anything that would bring the association or the industry into disrepute.
TAMPAN also urged its members to embrace the organization’s dispute resolution process rather than criticising it on social media.
