Nollywood actor, producer and director, Yul Edochie has reacted to the rumour making rounds that he allegedly got his colleague, Judy Austin pregnant.
Yul Edochie who is married to May Edochie with 4 lovely kids (3 boys and a girl) reportedly welcomed a bouncing baby with his colleague turned baby mama, Judith Austin few weeks ago.
However, reacting to the rumours which has continued to spread like wildfire, Yul Edochie has asked his critics to concentrate on his several other achievements and leave his private life alone.
Listing several other of his achievements, the last child of veteran actor Pete Edochie wrote this on his verified Instagram page.
A young man who never relied on his father’s name but worked extremely hard to build his own name.
A young man who came into Nollywood and took it to greater heights with his outstanding performances.
A young man who defied the odds and ran for Governor of his State at 35yrs.
Rejected all forms of bribe to step down by other parties and ran the race till the end.
A young man who gave up his political appointment to join the campaign to rescue Nigeria.
A young man who has stood for peace, unity and progress in Nigeria and Africa.
A young man who constantly assists, fights for the youths and encourages them to believe in themselves and fight for their rights and their country.
A young man who constantly celebrates other people’s achievements.
A man of high integrity.
A fearless young man who has declared his interest to run for President of Nigeria, 2023 and will be only 41yrs of age by then.
Indeed a shining example to the youths.
Are they giving me my accolades?
Are they discussing my contribution to building a better society?
Are they supporting my Presidential ambition?
They are busy discussing my private life which is not their business.
But I’m not surprised.
That has always been one of our major problems in Nigeria, always ignoring relevant issues and focusing on frivolities.
People who have never acknowledged my contributions to nation building are quick to discuss my private life all in a bid to bring me down.
Well sorry to disappoint you, you can’t bring me down.
God lifted me, designed and equipped me for a divine purpose on earth.
Like King David I’m a man after God’s own heart.
So while you are busy discussing my private life, please can you also use some percentage of that time to support my 2023 Presidential ambition.
Together we can save our country.
Thank you and May God bless us all.”
Nollywood actress, Dayo Amusa has slammed her colleague, Yomi Fabiyi over the controversial movie titled, “Oko Iyabo”.
The story is linked to the pending rape case and sexual assault by Baba Ijesha against a minor.
Dayo Amusa who’s triggered by this turn of events disclosed that Yomi has proven how insensitive he is and for also having the effrontery to promote the movie by sending her the link on WhatsApp.
“In as much as I choose not to speak openly about the ongoings but there are issues one must not keep quiet on. Seeing a video of a movie by Yomi Fabiyi today has proved how much of a shame and insensitive he is. You even had the effrontery to share the movie link with me on WhatsApp.
I don’t judge people as I believe we all see things and react to situations differently but Under no circumstances should someone’s pain and tribulation be turned into a thing of mockery. Yomi just proved how much he lacks empathy. To what extent if I may ask, TAMPAN, Censors Boards and the court of law shouldn’t shy away from this. Ilu ti o sofin ni ko si ese. Anje ekuru ko tan! I am disappointed. LETS BE GUIDED O.
Nollywood actress Iyabo Ojo has reacted to the new movie recently released by her colleague, Yomi Fabiyi, titled Oko Iyabo.
Yomi Fabiyi has come under fire over the movie that trivialises the sexual assault against comic actor Baba Ijesha.
Iyabo Ojo in a lengthy post via her Instagram account, has called on TAMPAN to take action over the new movie.
The events of the past few weeks involving one of our colleagues before the Court has drawn lots of reactions from different quarters, however, it is necessary we exercise patience, so we don’t fall into the danger of intruding into the sacred issues already instituted.
Yet, civility demand all parties, both those directly involved and other interested parties hesitate from being too emotional or bias about the plague of children molestation ravaging our society. Therefore, as a victim of sexual violence and stakeholder in film industry, we are oblige to jealously guard our actions and activities not to jeopardise the very cherished societal values we hold dear to our hearts.
It is no longer news that, Yomi Fabiyi just released a movie, titled, “oko iyabo” that portrayed a young girl with the mischievous career goal to be a prostitute.
I’m honestly waiting our elders in the industry to grant another press conference and address the sad issue on a movie that promote abuse and ridicules a girl child, been gross violation of the fundamental human right to dignity and more so, againt the child rights law of Lagos state.
This is even against the court ruling that individuals should refrain from commenting or doing anything that would undermine the powers of the court or unduly influence the proceedings in court.
It is tragic to see a movie teaching our children that it is right to have a relationship with an adult.
The President of Tampan @mrlatin1510 our elders @princejidekosoko @adebayo.salam should swing into action and caution the producer and all persons involved in this film. Ironically, Yomi call himself a friend and junior colleague to baba ijesha yet at every slightest opportunity, you are using his situation to your advantage, to project your fame.
You call yourself a human right activist but yet you have subjected a minor and girl to more ridicule and abuse. Take note, an army of bias adults and myopic persons can never silence my voice.
The narration of the dastardly act cannot be misinterpreted. No adult should be allowed to intimidate or deprive that 14years old girl from getting justice.
The wheel of justice grind slowly but justice shall be served.

A young woman named Ewatomi Ayeni, who was at the Lagos magistrate’s court, Yaba on Wednesday, June 17, has claimed that Nollywood actor, Olanrewaju Omiyinka, popularly known as Baba Ijesha is innocent of the allegations against him.
The woman who claims to be a relative of Baba Ijesha told newsmen that Princess had tried to seduce Baba Ijesha and when he resisted, she vowed to make Baba Ijesha pay. She claimed Princess then set him up with her foster daughter.
She said, “My name is Ewatomi Ayeni, the person in question is my elder brother. I haven’t spoken on the media ever since the issue started. I am Baba Ijesha’s younger sister. I am not ready to mention names but I know justice will be served.
“The government should investigate this matter very well and ensure that an innocent man doesn’t die in the position of the wicked. If one doesn’t hear the other side of the story before arriving at a conclusion, that person is wicked. Do not allow an innocent man to suffer because of what has happened, he knows nothing about it.
“He was invited and they set up the camera. All that they have asked the girl to do was what she did. They didn’t give Baba Ijesha the grace to defend himself, so they can at least hear him out. He’s there now, he’s sick but he cannot go out, he’s just there, he’s useless, the family too is useless, we can’t do anything. We cannot leave him to be in pain, he’s the pillar of our family and he must not crumble.
“I don’t want to mention names but if truly, Ijesha committed this crime, his wife’s mother will never support him.
“They claimed Baba Ijesha defiled the girl 7 years ago; if only everyone knew what happened to him. We (his family members) cannot disclose, it’s not everyone you see in movies, dressed well, that lives a perfect life. How many people do we explain what happened to? We have been keeping it as a family thing and then she decided to make it public.
“Has Princess herself mentioned the number of times she went naked urging Ijesha to sleep with her? Several times! Princess will invite Ijesha to come over though she knows he is married. Even if his wife is not in Nigeria, she knows he has sisters that can cook for him, yet she will invite him to come and eat.
“You claim to be friends with someone and you are also the enemy, why are you a fre-enemy? She came online claiming she helped Ijesha, does she know where he took his West African Senior School Certificate Examination, why is she making it seem like he depended on her?
“I plead with the government and every other authority to investigate the matter properly and know that Ijesha is innocent. He has no hand in whatever has happened.
“When you call someone a paedophile, that person will only be attracted to children but I have lived with Ijesha all my life, he could have used the opportunity that we are not of the same parents to abuse me but he never did that. I am who I am because of God and Ijesha. If he was truly a paedophile, we would have heard and known, but he is not.
“Now, simply because he became famous, some people want to tarnish his image.
“Princess, the comedian you all know, would remove her clothes and ask Ijesha to sleep with her but because he is a married man, he has always refused.
“The other time, she said in Yoruba ‘I will show you’. She has done it now. Nothing must happen to Lanre, he was granted bail but they didn’t allow him to go.”
Responding on Instagram, Princess simply said the woman is not Baba Ijesha’s sister. Princess then shared voice notes she claims Baba Ijesha sent to his friends from prison, encouraging them to spread lies about her and tarnish her image so that her story will be questioned by people.
Listen to the voice note allegedly sent by Baba Ijesha from Panti below.
