AFRIMEK suspends actor Papa Show over alleged assault on Temidayo Morakinyo

Actress Temidayo Morakinyo

The African Men Entertainment Kings (AFRIMEK) has suspended actor Olamilekan Shoneye aka Papa Show for allegedly assaulting his female colleague Temidayo Morakinyo.

The group’s action followed Temidayo’s allegations on Instagram on Thursday where she said Papa Show punched her in the face on a movie set in Ibadan.

The actress showed off her bleeding lips in a video she shared on the photo-sharing app. She said Papa Show pounced on her after she reported his excesses to her boss.

Reacting to this in a letter signed by the mayor of AFRIMEK Femi Adebayo on Instagram on Friday, the club said that the actor has been sanctioned and placed on indefinite suspension.

The letter read, “Dear Temidayo, we received news of the mental, emotional, and physical abuse meted out on you by a member of our club, Mr Olamilekan Shoneye, popularly known as ‘show’.

“His actions do not represent the identity for which our club stands for and been known to project. He has been immediately sanctioned and placed on indefinite suspension, while further investigations by our disciplinary committee are ongoing to unravel the entire fact of the unfortunate incident.

“We would also like to extend our sincere apology to you. No one deserves such a treatment. We will equally take up the medical charges to restore you back to good health. Our gesture is to show how apologetic we are as a body.”
