Yomi Fabiyi Releases ‘Oko Iyabo’: A Movie About Baba Ijesha Rape Allegation by Ironman3(m): 1:36am On Jul 06, 2021
A Yoruba actor, Yomi Fabiyi, has made good his promise to release a movie based on the rape allegation levelled against his embattled colleague and close friend, Omiyinka Olanrewaju (Baba Ijesha). The movie, ‘Oko Iyabo’, which is loosely based on Baba Ijesha’s alleged rape saga, his ‘social media trial’ and all the parties involved, debuted on Sunday.

The actor had earlier disclosed that he was going to release a film which would give an insight into the circumstances surrounding Omiyinka Olanrewaju’s (Baba Ijesha) alleged rape mess. The film, directed by Dele Matti, featured several Yoruba movie stars including Antar Laniyan, Lateef Adedimeji, Adewale Elesho and Lola Idije.

Criticism

But his critics and fans of his colleague, Iyabo Ojo, have accused him of portraying Baba Ijesha as a victim who was falsely accused of dating a 14 year-old girl in the film. They have also accused the filmmaker cum actor of using the real names of the principal characters involved in the case, “flipping the script and subbing Ms Ojo in the movie.”

Plot

When PREMIUM TIMES watched the movie on Monday evening, it was observed that one of the scenes was an exact reenactment of the viral CCTV video footage which implicated Baba Ijesha. Recall that, Princess, who accused Baba Ijesha of raping her 14-year-old foster daughter, released a CCTV footage showing the moment Baba Ijesha was allegedly caught sexually harrasing the teenager & also confessing to the crime. This was in April.

In Fabiyi’s movie, a teen actress could be seen making the first move on the actor. It also portrayed Baba Ijesha as a victim of a carefully orchestrated ploy by his close friend.

Inspiration

Justifying his reason for the film on Monday night, Fabiyi said, ‘‘The storyline is good and meant to inject right values, correct ills and educate but social media will always go this route.” “Thanks for reaching out and expressing yourself on the movie.” He also said he had asked that the film be taken down following public outcry that has heralded its release.

TAMPAN wades in

The umbrella body of the Yoruba film industry association, TAMPAN has summoned Fabiyi to appear before its association’s Committee on Ethics, Conflict and Resolution. TAMPAN shared a copy of the summon letter signed by its Director of Research and Documentation, Yemi Amodu on Instagram. In the letter, the association categorically stated that the movie was against its ethics and virtue.

It partly read: “The TAMPAN Committee on Ethics, Conflict and Resolution wishes to inform the general public that the association has summoned Mr. Yomi Fabiyi who is the Producer/Director of the controversial film titled “OKO IYABO” is to appear before it on Thursday 11th July 2021.

“This invitation becomes very necessary because of the controversy that the subject matter of his film has generated which is against our ethics and virtue.” “Despite that, we realize that the film has sparked another round of dissension between TAMPAN and the public; this is unacceptable to us and unsuitable to what we represent.”

“We hereby implore the general public and the parties concerned to please exercise patience as our eminent association is on top of this issue and will certainly ensure fairness and justice.”

Staunch ally

Mr Fabiyi has been a strong advocate for Baba Ijesha who was has been embroiled in a rape scandal since April. On May 14, he single-handedly led a peaceful protest in Lagos over Baba Ijesha’s continued. He told this newspaper then that although his views are largely unpopular, the protest was aimed at kicking against all forms of human rights violations.

Fabiyi has always been a brainless idiot.

I see rape apologists and products of inbreeding crying on my post and calling me names lol.

I'm sure Yomi would expect this mixed reactions. There's no crime in making a movie in support of his friend. There will always be 2 sides to the Baba Ijesha story, so making a movie �to debunk the accusers' story isn't really a bad move.

this guy has always remain a fool and not an activist like he claimed.

as an activist he is meant to know better, a case already in the court of law being presided over by a justice is not allowed public scrutiny.

if the other party should return to court this as evidence he would be charged for defamation and contempt against the court.

from the onset he blew it all beyond proportion, now he is at it again. I strongly believe he is working hard to cover up something he knows but we the public don't.

I'm having reason to believe the whole thing (allegation) against ijesa is true.

Smh.

If not for the number of dolts in Nigeria that were giving this guy morale, wetin for make am get mind to mumu like this?

A NIGERIAN guy in the UK collected the number of a minor and chatted her up. CHAT, he didn’t touch her arms, let alone boobs or sex and dude knew his life was finished the minute the girl’s FATHER (a sane man) involved the police.

But here in Nigeria, an adult was caught on tape molesting a minor and some people say setup. If they set some of you up with the diaper removed from the bum of a 3mths old baby, you fit chook prick. Since no be your mate dey see setup jump am pass.

The fear of having a female child is not that she will turn olosho, it is that there are too many predators in Nigeria and they have normalized their madness.

If them born una well, enter plane with this mentality and go to a developed country, let’s see if you won’t land in jail.

It is not a crime to produce movies based on true life story, so you people should just give it a rest.

The yoruba film industry is filled with lazy low iq producers shooting nonsense on entry level camera and only selling a few thousand CDs due to their useless agreement with equally inept marketers. I'm coming for that industry.
