Nigerian movie producer Matini Animashaun has vehemently criticized actor Yomi Fabiyi for spreading false rumors about his alleged involvement with Toyin Abraham.
Naijalegit reported that Yomi Fabiyi had alleged that the movie producer, who was the manager of Toyin Abraham in 2016, was having an affair with her. To add to it, he claimed that the movie producer was co-running the popular anonymous blog, Gistlover with Toyin.
Reacting to it, in a lengthy post on his Instagram page, he slammed Yomi for spreading false rumors as he recounted how a relative reached out to him a few days back about his conversation with Fabiyi and the outrageous lies he spilled to him.
Debunking the claims, Animashaun stressed the importance of clarifying things, especially knowing Yomi is an attention seeker. He stated that nothing besides a working relationship existed between him and Toyin and Fabiyi has no baseless and factual foundation to back up his claim.
He went on to note how Fabiyi is an attention whore, who he considers a petty human devoid of reasoning as to how his behavior can affect another human.
He wrote, “Attn: @realyomifabiyi Yomi Fabiyi, aka, Ikebe Super.
Clarification Regarding Recent Rumors Peddled By Yomi Fabiyi
Recently, I was reliably informed by a relative known to my colleague, Yomi Fabiyi and I, about my involvement in an alleged affair with actress Toyin Abraham and ‘our’ participation in running a blog (Gistlover). I want to address these rumors.
While I am aware of Mr. Fabiyi being an attention whore and a petty human devoid of reasoning as to how his behavior can affect another human, I have decided to clarify things.
I maintain a professional relationship with Toyin Abraham. I managed Toyin’s career in 2016. Nothing besides a working relationship exists between me and Toyin; Yomi, your tales are baseless and lack any factual foundation.
There is also no truth to the rumor that Toyin and I own and run Gistlover. I understand that misinformation can spread quickly, but I assure you that these rumors are unfounded.
I urge the media to exercise caution and adhere to journalistic integrity by verifying facts before publishing “sensational stories.”
It’s important to note that spreading false information damages the reputations of the individuals involved and perpetuates a culture of misinformation.
To set the record straight, I am a Nollywood actor and producer and run Tinimash Films Productions.
I value transparency and open communication, and addressing any misconceptions is important.”
Taking to his comment section, many sided with him noting how Yomi Fabiyi is an attention seeker.
