TAMPAN ban: Mary Njoku backs Iyabo Ojo and Nkechi Blessing
Actress and movie producer, Mary Remmy Njoku has reacted to the issued ban on directors from working with actresses Iyabo Ojo, Nkechi Blessing. by the Theater Arts and Motion Pictures Practitioners Association of Nigeria (TAMPAN).
In a post on Instagram, the ROK Studios boss threw her weight behind the two ladies, while describing them as two strong women who have used their time and platforms to speak up against rape or child molestation.
To her, there is no such thing as overreaction.
“Where there are allegations of rape or child molestation there is no such thing as overreaction. Today in Nigeria I don’t believe we are reacting enough. I stand with and want to thank these two strong women who have used their time and platforms to speak up against it. You both are my crush Today and always 🙏🏿🙏🏿🙏🏿🙏🏿.”
Recall that TAMPAN barred its members from engaging with Iyabo Ojo and Nkechi Blessing over what it called “reckless accusations, abuses and embarrassment of our sector,” following Baba Ijesha sex scandal.
The association in a communique noted that an offence against one is an offence against all, adding that the association will no longer tolerate “infringements”.
