Why we can’t settle Toyin Abraham, Lizzy Anjorin feud – Mr Latin

The President of the Theatre Arts and Motion Pictures Association of Nigeria (TAMPAN), Bolaji Amusan aka Mr Latin, has reacted to the recent Instagram outbursts between his colleagues, Toyin Abraham and Lizzy Anjorin.

On Monday, lawyers representing Toyin wrote Lizzy demanding a public apology from her for accusing the former of cyber-bullying.

The rift between both actresses took a different dimension on Tuesday after Lizzy petitioned the Nigeria Drug Law and Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) over a drug peddling allegation levelled against her by Toyin.

Mr Latin addressed the issue on Tuesday.

He said there is little the body (TAMPAN) can do about the feud between the actresses because they do not belong to the umbrella body of Yoruba actors.

“There is little we can do to intervene in an issue that involves non-members,” he said.

Despite insinuating that the actresses are not TAMPAN members, he promised to find a solution to their ongoing feud.

Mr Latin made the clarification after fans attacked TAMPAN for not intervening in the feud.

In his address, Mr Latin also charged his younger colleagues to remain cordial, support one another and shun envy.

This is not the first time TAMPAN would be attacked for not intervening in the regular social media spats between Yoruba actresses.

Catfights are very common among Yoruba actresses and often linger for years and sometimes, decades.

From Mercy Aigbe to Iyabo Ojo and the latest warring parties, this year alone, a host of other Yoruba actresses have taken to Instagram to fight dirty at different times.

Their regular social media spats are a source of concern to their colleagues and fans alike.

Veteran actors like Dele Odule and Yinka Quadri have waded in occasionally.
