Popular Nollywood actress, Iyabo Ojo, has tendered an apology to the Theatre Arts and Motion Pictures Practitioners Association of Nigeria (TAMPAN).
This came days after she was issued a severe warning over her outburst on social media on the ongoing trial of the embattled actor, Olanrewaju Omiyinka, better known as Baba Ijesha.
The mother of two had taken to social media on numerous occasions to express her opinion on the Baba-Ijesha issue.
However, her actions and things she said did not sit well with the Board of Trustees of TAMPAN as they issued a stern warning to Ojo and her junior colleague, Nkechi Blessing.
In a trending video recording of a live session with the President of TAMPAN, Mr. Latin, the actress wrote, “I would like to say thank you to @esabodofficialpage. God bless you ma, Agba yin a dale. I so much appreciate you mama & Love you.
“First & foremost, I want to appreciate God almighty, all mercifully, I love you Lord & I thank you for your constant protection, provision, and guidance over me & my family. I’m forever grateful.
“I will also want to use this opportunity to say a very BIG thank you to all my darling fans and loved ones for your constant love & support … Honestly, I’m so overwhelmed & humbled, I will never take it for granted.
“To an able & ever-humble president of Tampan @mrlatin1510 thank you very much, sir. Our big daddies @adebayo.salami @princejidekosoko @realyinkaquadri, on behalf of @nkechiblessingsunday my darling aburo & my humble self, we apologize to you sirs. We’re sorry for getting you upset. You’re our elders & leaders; we respect you, we’re humbled before you, we will forever appreciate you & honor you. It’s all Peace & Love.”(sic)
Mr. Latin, in the Instagram live conversation, said, “If a person has 100 cows in his care and one goes astray, the person will go and look for the stray cow as a good leader. So, I cannot neglect Iyabo, neither can I do the same thing for Nkechi. Where she had offended has been amended.
“As leaders and elders, we have to embrace them more for things to go on peacefully. The improvement of our industry is what is paramount to us.”
