AFRIMEK has suspended prominent Nollywood Yoruba actor Shoneye Olamilekan, also known as Show, for violently attacking his younger colleague, Temidayo Morakinyo.
This comes just hours after the actress turned to social media to accuse the actor of physically abusing her on the set of a film.
Morakinyo described how the actor attacked her film set in Ibadan, Oyo State, and assaulted her on Friday in a series of Instagram stories.
She said Show hit her in the face and cracked her lip after she reported his erratic behavior to her employers on Thursday.
Morakinyo, on the other hand, stated that her family is seeking justice because the incident caused her anguish.
In a letter written by Femi Adebayo, AFRIMEK distanced itself from the actor and called his actions “horrible.”
“Dear Temidayo, we received news of the mental, emotional, and physical assault meted out on you by a member of our club, Olamilekan Shoneye, popularly known as Show,” the letter begins.
“His actions do not reflect the identity that our club represents and is known to project.” He was immediately sanctioned and placed on indefinite suspension, while our disciplinary committee conducts additional investigations to determine the full extent of the terrible situation.
“We would also like to express our heartfelt apologies to you.” No one deserves to be treated in this manner. We will also cover the medical costs to restore your health. Our gesture expresses how sorry we are as a group.”
