Iyabo Ojo has tendered a public apology to the Theater Arts and Motion Pictures Practitioners Association of Nigeria (TAMPAN), after they had threatened to frustrate her out of the industry.
The leadership of the Theater Arts and Motion Pictures Practitioners Association of Nigeria, TAMPAN barred directors in the association from working with Nkechi Sunday Blessing and Iyabo Ojo, also threatening to frustrate them out of the industry.
Both actresses have over time taken to social media to openly condemn the conduct of one of them, Baba Ijesha, who was accused of defiling the foster daughter of comedienne, Princess. Both actresses have clashed with some members of the association who kicked against them openly condemning Baba Ijesha.
Speaking on behalf of member Board of Trustee of the association at a press briefing on Sunday, June 27, veteran actor Prince Jide Kosoko said despite the fact that Iyabo Ojo and Nkechi Blessing are not registered members of TAMPAN, the association would not entertain any form of disrespect by both actresses who tried to drag the association in the mud. Kosoko said the association is aware of the derogatory statements made by Iyabo Ojo against the Association and the industry as a whole, noting that they will not take further insults.
The mother of two has however taken it upon herself to apologize for her wrongs and to ask for forgiveness.
Taking to her official Instagram page to tender the apology, the 43-year-old wrote;
