Nollywood actor and producer Yomi Fabiyi has said nobody has banned his new controversial movie — “Oko Iyabo”.
According to the filmmaker, the movie is about Iyabo Ojo and I, fighting a child abuse case from a different angle.
He said he wasn’t cashing in and making light of the matter but writing his own side of the story.
Fabiyi’s new film “Oko Iyabo”, which has suffered backlash from social media users, depicts the s3xual assault case involving fellow actor, Baba Ijesha.
“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,” Fabiyi wrote on his Instagram story addressing the concerns around the film.
Fabiyi had earlier said the film which critics claimed made a mockery of the victim, was actually meant to “correct” the child abuse and assault.
He said he had been called unprintable names by Iyabo and Princess for standing by what is right in videos that were circulated online.
He vowed that the movie will later be made available online and on DVD which will be rated by Censor’s board and not by social media comments.
“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 & Iyabo fighting on a case from different angle and personalities.
“The movie has enough message. MY FULL V RESPONSE TOMORROW. Thank you all for your continued support and genuine concerns,” he added.
