‘I am not a member of TAMPAN ‘ – Nkechi Blessing Fireback at Mr Latin over her suspension from Nollywood film industry
Nollywood actress, Nkechi Blessing has denied being a member of The Theatre Arts and Motion Pictures Practitioners Association of Nigeria (TAMPAN).
KFN recalls that Nkechi and her colleague, Lege Miami were suspended by the TAMPAN chairman Damilola Olatunji following their war of words on social media over the recent arrest of their colleague, Baba Ijesha, who has been accused of rape and sexual defilements of a minor.
According to the 32-year-old during an Insta live session with her fans on Instagram, she was never a member of TAMPAN because they are disorganized.
Speaking further, Nkechi said she never attended their meetings and she does not understand how an organization she is not a member of can suspend her.
In her words;
“It came as a shock to me because normally, in an organization that is organized, you’re not supposed to serve anybody a letter on social media. I did not join the industry through social media, that is the number one error they wrote to themselves, not to me.”
“You claim I’m one of your members in your association, you didn’t call me, you didn’t send a text, you didn’t send an email. You didn’t try contacting me in any way, and you put up whatever you put up on Instagram without even tagging me, some other person sent it to me, who does that?”
We all have the right to air our opinions on our platforms. How do you suspend me when I have never been part of your association? I have never attended your meetings. You’re telling the board of directors not to call me for jobs, when was the last time I crossed your cameras?,”
