Actor-filmmaker Yomi Fabiyi has continued his campaign for peace, congratulating his colleague Mo Bimpe on her marriage to Lateef Adedimeji.

The filmmaker shared a photo of the couple on Instagram on Wednesday.

“Happy Married Life Bimpe & Lateef. I wish you both the best in your marital home. Eyin iyawo o ni moo eni oh. E ra rug or use tiles oh. CONGRATULATIONS. I am still the first, original and only industry baba iyawo. Lateefuu bring my bride price oooo, if not ija sese beere #CONGRATULATIONS #PEACE2022 #HEALINGINFORGIVENESS,” he wrote.

This came after Yomi celebrated Iyabo Ojo on her birthday, calling for peace after their fight on social media over Baba Ijesha’s sexual assault case.

Yomi and Bimpe made headlines in July after the actress alleged that Fabiyi stopped casting her in movies because she refused to give in to his sexual advances.

Yomi, however, maintained that Mo Bimpe was the one who wronged him.

He said, “She knows what she did that made me change towards her. I am an adult and I am free to be sexually attracted to anybody. At least, I am thankful to God that she never said I forced her. There is nothing that says that she has automatic roles (in my movies). I do not know the kind of entitlement she has to think she can always feature in my movies. I will take time to explain what she did.

“The first thing she did that made me change towards her was that I brought her into the industry in 2015 and on the last day of the movie shoot in 2015, she left and I did not set my eyes on her until January 2019.

“I brought her into the industry because I wanted her to be great and known. I wanted her to have a career, so, why was she cutting corners? At the end of day, she called to tell me that she had a job for me. I told her that the person she gave the job, she knew him through me because he was my production manager. That was why I cut that person off from my production forever.

The actor also noted that sexual attraction was different from sexual harassment. He added, “Ask her if she made sexual advances to me and not vice versa. I did not notice her first. She was the one that noticed me. Besides, if we did make advances at each other, we are both adults. The most important thing is that there was no force. Do not make it look like because I am an actor, I do not have a right to have emotions or sexual feelings.”
