“I am not one to speak out of place, but their are issues one must not keep quiet on. This is one of those issues. Yomi Fabiyi today proved just how much of a shame he is. Under no circumstances should someone’s pain and tribulation be turned into a thing of mockery. You have proven with this act that you are uncultured, lack empathy, and you remain the face of what is wrong with Nigeria today when it comes to sexual molestation. This movie is shameful and is not a work of art. If you had any self respect and dignity you would take it down ASAP. For someone who claims to be a father, I am disappointed in you 100 100 100 100 10 you know you’ve been blocked a long time ago, so I don’t need to tag you. Do the needful.”
