July 07, (THEWILL) – Actor Yomi Fabiyi has stated that nobody banned his controversial movie, “Oko Iyabo.”
THEWILL writes that Fabiyi in his new movie “Oko Iyabo” used a storyline making reference to Baba Ijesha’s rape saga.
According to Fabiyi, he pulled the movie from YouTube and he made use of Iyabo Ojo and Princess’s real names since they mentioned his name in their videos and it is allowed in movies.
The actor has come under attack for releasing the movie and he had stated that he has a right to his own story, noting that he never undermined the victim or any girl child.
Fabiyi stated that Nigerians “twisted” the movie to get reactions from the public.
Fabiyi wrote on Instagram: “Iyabo Ojo has done many videos mentioning my full names and the videos were published in YouTube, IGTV etc. simply because I stand for human rights, so also princess mentioned my real name.
”They called me pedophile and rape apologist for standing by what is right. So sentiment on use of real names. It is allowed in movie making.
“I hand you all to your consciences and God.No amount of all these can pull me down.
“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 and Iyabo fighting on a case from different angle and personalities.
“The movie has enough message.”
