Actress Ada Ameh has called out actor Yomi Fabiyi over his controversial new movie with a storyline he was accused of taking from Baba Ijesha’s rape saga and using real names of those involved in the case.

Nollywood actor Funsho Adeolu has taken to social media to blasts veteran actor Jide Kosoko alongside other stakeholders of the Theater Arts and Motion Pictures Practitioners Association of Nigeria over threat to frustrate Iyabo Ojo and Nkechi Blessing in the Nollywood industry.
News earlier reported that the decision follows the condemnation of their colleague, Baba Ijesha, alleged of defiling the foster daughter of Nigerian comedienne, Princess.
Nkechi Blessing and Iyabo Ojo also clashed with some TAMPAN members, such as Yomi Fabiyi, Lege Maimi, who kicked against them for openly condemning Baba Ijesha.

It also barred directors in the association from working with the two Nollywood stars.
Reacting, Funsho Adeolu in a post shared on Instagram said he’s ashamed of the leadership of the association adding the do not have the interest of their members at heart.
He wrote: My face is covered, not because of covid but in shame on behalf of those who call themselves leaders of local association and do not have the interest of members at heart. God is watching o
Helen Paul, who is now a lecturer in the United States of America has said that divorce and other scandals were part of what a particular celebrity management personnel asked her to entangle herself into, to be able to get followers on Instagram.
The happily married mother of three said this in a recent Instagram live session.
“I once told someone that I really loved his work and that I would like to work with him. I had seen him manage two female artistes successfully.
However, his response was, “Helen, if I am going to work with you, you may not like my pattern. We may have to create one or two scandals for you so that the crowd can ‘follow’ you’. I then asked him what type of scandals he meant. He told me to check up on people that had about 10 million followers (on social media). He also stated that the scandal could be a divorce or any other controversial issue. He said that when I did that, I would get (more) followers. Healso stated that after some time, I should begin doing charitable acts that would cover up any unpleasant thing I had done. He felt that the most important thing was to have many followers. There is a lot of manipulation out there and some times, one cold be tempted to consider doing those things. Sometimes, I am tempted to post (on social media) some of the materials possessions I have acquired. But, I am blessed to have people that call me to order. So, I am not able to show off, and that could be painful too.”
The actress also revealed that she once lost a two-month pregnancy while on a motorcycle. She said, “I am comfortable working with guys, I have a problem working with ladies. I had more than five commercial motorcycle riders on standby. In case there was traffic, they would pick me up from any location. One day, I was going for a show and I was two months pregnant. I was with a friend named Frank and it was on that bike I lost my pregnancy. I told Frank that something was wrong with my stomach and that I was stained with blood. He checked my clothes and said I was stained with the blood of my menstrual cycle. I told him then that I had lost my pregnancy. At my instruction, I was taken to a hospital in Ikeja, Lagos State. The hospital cleaned me up but sadly, I could not attend the show I was rushing to.”
The body of a teenage girl with blood-stained clothes and a hole on her chest, suggested a possible hit by a stray bullet during the Oodua Nation mega rally held at Freedom Park.
The police had in the course of dispersing the agitators, fired gunshots into the air, shot teargas canisters and also used water cannons.
But in a statement by spokesman, Olumuyiwa Adejobi, denied its operatives fired live bullets at the rally, describing the allegation as a calculated attempt to create confusion and fears in the minds of the good people of Lagos State and the country at large.
President Muhammadu Buhari has said that the problem of the country is Nigerians and not ethnicity or religion.
Receiving members of the Muhammadu Buhari/Osinbajo (MBO) Dynamic Support Group, who visited the State House in Abuja on Wednesday June 30 to present a compendium of five years achievements of the administration, the President recounted his struggle to get justice after disputed results of presidential elections in 2003, 2007, and 2011.
Buhari said that those who ruled against him were of his own ethnic stock and religious persuasion, while those who stood up for him were of other faith and ethnicity.
The President said;
“Our problem is not ethnicity or religion, it is ourselves. After my third appearance in the Supreme Court, I came out to speak to those who were present then. I told them that from 2003, I’d spent 30 months in court.
“The President of the Court of Appeal, the first port of call for representation by presidential candidates then, was my classmate in secondary school in Katsina. We spent six years in the same class, Justice Umaru Abdullahi.
“My legal head was Chief Mike Ahamba, a Roman Catholic and an Igbo man. When the President of the court decided that we should present our case, my first witness was in the box.
“Ahamba insisted that a letter should be sent to the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), to present the register of constituencies in some of the States, to prove that what they announced was falsehood. It was documented.
“When they gave judgment, another Igbo man, the late Justice Nsofor, asked for the reaction from INEC to the letter sent to them. They just dismissed it. He then decided to write a minority judgment. That was after 27 months in court.
We went to the Supreme Court. Who was Chief Justice of Nigeria (CJN)? A Hausa-Fulani like me, from Zaria. The members of the panel went in for about 30 minutes, came back to say they were proceeding on break. They went for 3 months. When they came back, it didn’t take them 15 minutes, they dismissed us.
“In 2007, who was the CJN? Kutigi. Again, a Muslim from the North. After 8 months or so, he dismissed the case.
“Again in 2011, because I was so persistent, Musdafa, a Fulani man like me, from Jigawa, neighbor to my state, was CJN. He dismissed my case.
“I’ve taken you round this to prove that our problem is not ethnicity or religion. It is ourselves.
“I refused to give up. I had tried to wear Agbada after what happened to me in Khaki. Something was done to me, because I did something to others. You know it. In the end, I myself was arrested, sent to detention, and they were given back what they had taken. I was there for three and a quarter years. This is Nigeria.
“I hope historians and intellectuals would document this, because it is a fantastic state of political development. Let our grandchildren and great grandchildren see how we came along. We didn’t get it as easy as other people think. Not because God has given us great population and resources. We have suffered along the line.
“I try to mention these things because you got yourselves together, used your resources, energies without any input from me. I cannot thank you enough. I’m very grateful to you and to Nigerians because in 2019, I visited all the states, the people that turned out to see me across the country (because I’m dedicated to serve Nigeria and Nigerians), the love is genuine.
“Thank God that over the years, they can’t accuse me of corruption. And I’ve been everything; Governor, Minister of Petroleum Resources, Head of State, President and in my second term. I thank you that nobody forced you, but you got together, used your energy, time and resources, I thank you very much. I assure you, history will do you justice.”
