The African Men Entertainment Kings, AFRIMEK, has suspended Nollywood actor, Shoneye Olamilekan, also known as Papa Show, for assaulting his female junior colleague, Temidayo Morakinyo.
On Friday, May 19, Temidayo Morakinyo took to social media to call out Papa Show for allegedly assaulting her on a movie set. The actress who was in tears as she recorded the video showed off her bleeding lips from the movie set in Ibadan, Oyo state.
According to Morakinyo, Papa Show was discussing with a lady when he rudely asked her (Morakinyo) to go buy him a drink.
The actress who said she felt ridiculed, collected the money and got the drink for him but subsequently reported him to her bosses, Niyi Johnson and Afeez Seriki to avoid a reoccurrence and they promised to address the issue.
After being called to order, Shoneye reportedly stormed the set and allegedly punched her in the face while raining curses on her.
Reacting to the allegations, AFRIMEK in a letter shared and signed by the Mayor, Femi Adebayo, has distanced itself from the actor.
Femi Adebayo, in the letter, stated that Papa Show’s actions do not represent the identity for which their club stands for and has been known to present.
His shameful act has left the association to sanction him and place him on immediate suspension, while further investigations are ongoing.
The association also sympathize with Temidayo Morkinyo and offered to cover her medical expenses.
