Nollywood Yoruba actor Shoneye Olamilekan has been suspended by African Men Entertainment Kings (AFRIMEK) following his physical assault on fellow actor Temidayo Morakinyo.
Morakinyo had previously taken to social media to publicly accuse Olamilekan of assaulting her while on the set of a movie. Through a series of Instagram story posts on Friday, Morakinyo detailed how Olamilekan unexpectedly arrived on the movie set in Ibadan, Oyo State, and proceeded to physically harm her.
Accompanied by photos of her injured lips, Morakinyo revealed that the assault took place after she had reported Olamilekan’s inappropriate behavior to their superiors on Thursday.
In response to the incident, AFRIMEK issued a letter signed by Femi Adebayo, in which the organization disassociated itself from Olamilekan and condemned his actions as disgraceful.
The letter reads: “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.
“His actions do not represent the identity [that] our club represents and [has] 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 facts of the unfortunate incident.
“We would also like to extend our sincere apology to you. No one deserves such treatment. We will equally take up the medical charges to restore you to good health. Our gesture is to show how apologetic we are as a body.”
