The association had earlier suspended two Nollywood actors Kehinde Adams also known as Lege Miami and Nkechi Blessing Sunday who have been  at loggerheads over the arrest of their colleague Baba Ijesha, that was accused of sexually assaulting a minor.

Following the suspension of Nkechi Blessing Sunday and Kehinde Adams, Nigerians had called on the association to wield the hammer on both Iyabo Ojo and Yomi Fabiyi over their well-publicized feud and name calling, still over the Baba Ijesha sexual assault case. While Yomi Fabiyi escaped the hammer without any tenable reasons as at the time of filing this, Iyabo Ojo was suspended.

According to the President of the association, Bolaji Amusan, popularly known as Mr. Latin, at a recent meeting:

“As far as I am concerned as the President of TAMPAN, Nkechi Blessing is not a member of TAMPAN…Iyabo Ojo is not a member of TAMPAN. Yomi Fabiyi is a member of TAMPAN. Deji Aderemi is a member of TAMPAN.”

At the meeting following several social media dramas and disagreements among its members, the association said it had blacklisted Iyabo Ojo, placing a ban on directors under its guild from engaging her services as an actress.

Speaking at the meeting, the Secretary of the association Prince Jide Kosoko said:

“Our local chapters are disciplined. If you look at the number of practitioners that are misbehaving now, you cannot count ten. We’re about to have some black sheep. As soon as we detect them, we will know what to do. We have tiers. We have all tiers. We have the local government chapter in which they have a disciplinary committee, Provost. If the local government level cannot get it done, they move to the State with the same officers. They can take it to the National level. If it can’t be handled at the level too, they go to the National executive council. If need be, the board of trustees can come in. We have penalties.”

Jide Kosoko further vowed that the association will work against Nkechi Blessing.

He said:

“Even if the law says you’re free to practice anything you like, we can frustrate you out of the industry…If you think you’re above the law, we can get you out of our way.”

Veteran actors Adebayo Salami popularly known as Oga Bello and Chief Mrs Oye Oyewunmi reiterated the association’s decision at the meeting.

Also present at the meeting were veteran actors Ebun Oloyede better known by his alias Olaiya Igwe and Yinka Quadri.
