See the content of the letter below:
The association has received lots of complaints from the public and creative colleagues on the theme, title and content of a movie “OKO IYABO” produced and directed by you with your co-director, Dele Mati, which is now being streamed online by Oleku Television.
“The controversy that the subject matter of the said film has generated is unbearable for us as an association. The release of the film has sparked off another round of public dissension that may bring polemic against TAMPAN and our good members if we fail to nip the bud of the controversy.
“For elucidation on the theme, title and content of the said movie, you are hereby invited for hearing by TAMPAN’s Conflict & Resolution Committee headed by Alhaji Tajudeen Olanrewaju with Barrister Femi Adebayo, Hafsat Balogun, Antar Laniyan, Fumbi Akinduro, Adewale Abdurasaq and Yemi Amodu as members.
“The hearing is scheduled for 11am on Thursday 8th July 2021 at Lagos TAMPAN House, 260 Agege Motor Road, Opposite Mayflower, Mushin Lagos State.
“You are required to come along with a copy of the film.
“Thank you in anticipation for your punctuality.”
