Veteran Yoruba actors, Yinka Quadri and The President of the Theatre Arts and Motion Pictures Association of Nigeria (TAMPAN),Bolaji Amusan- Latin said they would not accept ”any act of indiscipline” from feuding actresses, Toyin Abraham and Lizzy Anjorin.
The visibly angered actors were reacting to the Instagram spat between Toyin and Lizzy which has lingered for almost a week.
In a joint video broadcast posted on their respective Instagram handles, the actors echoed, ”Enough is Enough. The industry must be protected.”
In the broadcast which was relayed in Yoruba language, Mr Latin, said, ”I had to call Mr Yinka Quadri into this matter because he is like an elder to us. Despite speaking to Toyin and Lizzy independently & intervening as elders they have still continued abusing each other, doing the same thing. Enough is enough. We must protect our industry”.
He added, ”From today, any one of you (Toyin or Lizzy) that posts anything on Instagram, whether positive or negative, the industry will penalise such person. Enough is enough it’s getting out of hand. Lizzy Anjorin and Toyin Abraham this is the last warning, if you post anything you won’t like what will happen.”
On his part, Mr Quadri, added, ” We are pleading with all TAMPAN members, youths and begging who have any grievances towards any actor(member) to speak with TAMPAN. We have leadership, we have laws and penalties.”
