Iyabo Ojo, Nollywood star, has spoken about the recent action taken against her by the Theatre Arts and Motion Pictures Practitioners Association of Nigeria (TAMPAN). 

TAMPAN had blacklisted Ojo during its meeting at the weekend and instructed directors under its guild to desist from engaging her services.

The development had followed multiple social media rows involving her and other colleagues in the industry, including Yomi Fabiyi.

TAMPAN had also vowed to “work against” Nkechi Blessing — who was earlier suspended alongside Kehinde Adams, another actor, over their social media row.

Reacting in a post via her Instagram page on Monday, Ojo said she cannot be silenced when it comes to the issue of child molestation in Nigeria.

The actress said the scourge has continued unchecked because those affected cannot speak up for fear of being attacked.

“Silence is golden. Is why a lot of our girl or boy child gets abused, molested or raped daily and yet they’re afraid to speak up…. because they’ll be bullied to silence by the same society meant to protect them,” she wrote.

“Silence ain’t golden in Nigeria. I can never be silenced, know that & know God period.”
