First I’ll like to thank all lovers of arts and the practitioners who stood by Yewande Abiodun – an actor and producer under the umbrella of Theater Arts and Motion Picture Producer’s Association of Nigeria (TAMPAN), during the imbroglio between our member and a marketer of repute in YOVIMPAN – a marketing association for home videos in the person of Mr Balogun – the CEO of Olasco Films.
May I use this medium to first state that Yewande Abiodun as a member of our dear association and as a producer is free to produce for any person (s) or any viewing platform that shows interest in her works.
Secondly no person (s) or association has any right to issue a ban statement on any of our members without due consultation with the national executives of our association in which in this case I find extremely unwarranted and out their jurisdiction.
Let me state that any future pronouncement on any of our member without due consultation will be met with stiff opposition.
I want to thank all stakeholders from both associations who have tried to wade into the matter before and after the ban statement was issued. TAMPAN remain resolute in uplifting our great industry and the practitioners by way of standardizing our production and improving on distribution channels.
I’ll hereby enjoin all TAMPAN members to go about their job without any fear but with all sense of dignity until this issue is arrested and rested.
Thank you all and God bless
Long Live TAMPAN
Long Live NIGERIA
