Movie practitioners summon Olaiya over pro-Tinubu nude video

The Theatre Arts and Motion Pictures Practitioners of Nigeria (TAMPAN) has commenced disciplinary proceedings against veteran actor, Ebun Oloyede, popularly known as Olaiya Igwe, over a video that showed his unclad body while praying for the victory of the All Progressive Congress (APC) presidential candidate, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, in the 2023 polls.

Actress and TAMPAN executive Rose Odika, who verified this event to Sunday Scoop, claimed Olaiya will appear before a disciplinary committee established by the association to defend his behavior.

Even though the actor has been called, according to Odika, he hasn’t yet shown up in front of the disciplinary committee.

Actors are free to express their political inclinations, according to Odika, the governor of the TAMPAN branch in Oyo State, when asked if Olaiya had broken any rules of engagement for TAMPAN members supporting politicians.

He has the right to support whoever he chooses, but we have the moral justification angle, in Odika’s words. We are examining the morality of that advertisement (video). It is unrelated to his political allegiance. He violated the standards of conduct set forth by both our group and the industry.

“People can choose to support anybody they want out of their own free will. We have every right to be involved in politics and the governance of our country since, before becoming actors, we were first citizens.

The actor had previously denied having any knowledge of a rumored disciplinary action taken against him by TAPMAN.

I don’t know who discussed that with you, Olaiya remarked when speaking to Sunday Scoop about the situation. Nothing about that was mentioned to me. God be with you.

According to Pulse, Olaiya received harsh criticism on social media after a video of him ardently praying for Tinubu’s win in the upcoming presidential election went viral.
