Nollywood actor, Yomi Fabiyi has condemned those critizing the elders in Theatre Arts and Motion Pictures Practitioners Association of Nigeria (TAMPAN) for placing a ban on directors in its association to engage Iyabo Ojo and Nkechi Blessing as actress.
Recall that critics accused the association of taking such actions in connection to Baba Ijesha’s sex scandal, and further went ahead to insult the board of trustees of TAMPAN who made the decision in a press meeting.
However, Yomi Fabiyi on his Instagram page has reacted to those critizing, saying:
“If someone claims to be angry and insult all the elders and unborn in a family. Look no further, they have been abusing their parents.”
In addition, Yomi further school critics saying:
“In serious matters particularly with criminal undertone, stop relying on your own discretion, jungle justice, social media or emotions. Inform law enforcement, your lawyer and trust them to handle it.
“The COURT of LAW is a different ball game. Social Media and comment section easily follow the narrative the person posting want to play in people’s head and that will keep giving the politicians reasons to want to cage this vital tool aiding our freedom of expression. Don’t give them that chance.
“Always think outside the box, pay attention to details and see the bigger picture on anything posted, remember PEACE, SECURITY and HUMAN RIGHTS of others before posting or act otherwise. The LAW is sacrosanct.
“Arrogance of ignorance displayed on social media ends there, it doesn’t affect the position of the law especially in the court of law. These folks swore to protect the constitution not social media opinion.
“If social media opinion go in the direction of the law, good for the society. DO THE RIGHT THING, STAND BY WHAT IS RIGHT.
“It is a career built offline that social media will love, it is fame getting consistency offline that gets relevant online. Over addiction and reliance on social media is making so many people reckless and don’t care what they throw or say online on serious issues. Use the LIBRARY(Online and Offline).
“Don’t forget, no matter how small your interaction is with anybody, never let your manners slip, it may cost you nothing but can earn you a lot. CULTURE OF RESPECT is crucial to the existence of some industries or institutions, you are a curse if you indulge it or find excuse for it for rubbishing it.
“Before you copy my guts, ask from me personally. My one cent.
