Nollywood actor Yomi Fabiyi has defended his new movie Oko Iyabo, which mirrors the ongoing Baba Ijesha‘s alleged child molestation and defilement, and the opposing parts that he and his colleague, Iyabo Ojo played.
Recall that Yomi Fabiyi had hinted on making a living out of the whole scene with the name he claimed to have been given by those who love his moves and stance on the Baba Ijesha saga – Oko Iyabo.
Having released the movie 4 days ago, starring veteran actor Deji Aderemi, who said Baba Ijesha sleeping with a minor is not new in the movie industry and of course, not a big deal, the newly-surfaced Human Rights activist has received a lot of bashing and from his new statement, some polite and superior arguments about the movie. In the body of work where he used the real names of the characters he mirrored, the director insinuated Baba Ijesha and the allegedly defiled victim were having an affair and that Iyabo Ojo is a prostitute.
