The national body of Theatre Arts and Motion Pictures Practitioners Association of Nigeria has suspended Nollywood actors Nkechi Blessing Sunday and Kehinde Adams, popularly known as Lege Miami.
It was recalls that both actors have been in a war of words on social media over the recent arrest of their colleague, Baba Ijesha, who has been accused of rape and sexual defilements of a minor.
A statement issued by the TAMPAN chairman Damilola Olatunji disclosed that the unruly acts and exchange of detrimental verbal utterances by the actors are disrespectful to the association’s image and profession.
Damilola Olatunji said the decision is following the directive of TAMPAN’s parent body as the show of shame currently going on between Nkechi Blessing and Lege Maimi can no longer be accepted; hence punitive order became imperative to redeem the image of the association.
The statement adds that no movie director from the TAMPAN association should engage the services of the Nollywood stars as anyone who engages in others will be subject to punitive measure.
