Theatre Arts and Motion Pictures Practitioners Association of Nigeria, TAMPAN, has summoned veteran actor Ebun Oloyede, better known as Olaiya Igwe, to a disciplinary panel over a video that showed him praying nude for the victory of the presidential candidate of All Progressives Congress, APC, Bola Ahmed Tinubu in the 2023 election.
The actor recently shared a controversial nude video on his Instagram page, praying for Tinubu’s victory at the beach.
This got social media buzzing as many people didn’t find it welcoming. Social media users tagged TAMPAN and reported the actor’s Instagram page.
Instagram also deleted his account for violating its nudity and obscenity rules.
As a result, the association summoned the actor to face a disciplinary panel to explain the reasons for his actions.
TAMPAN executive and actress Rose Odike, during her interview with Sunday Scoop, noted that Olaiya Igwe had been summoned to face a disciplinary panel to explain himself, but he has yet to appear before it.
She said, “He has the right to support whoever he wants to, but we have the moral justification angle. We are looking at the morality behind that advert (video). It is not about who he is supporting. It is about him breaching the code of ethics of our association and industry.”
