Nollywood actress, Adebimpe Oyebade aka Mo Bimpe has explained how her relationship with a colleague, Yomi Fabiyi went sour.
There have been rumours of the wife of Adedimeji Lateef having an escapade with Yomi when she was working with him.
Confirming the reports as untrue, Mo Bimpe stated that Yomi didn’t ask her out until she finished shooting his movie.
According to her, Yomi stated that if he knew she would have turned his proposal down, he would have made his feelings known before shooting the movie with her.
Mo Bimpe made this known while answering a fan’s question on if she is in dispute with him over s*x for role allegation.
She added that she isn’t on talking terms with the actor because he told her to either date her or be enemies with her and she had no choice but to choose the latter.
“NO! In fact, he didn’t ask me out till we finished his movie. I featured in (tho he said if he knew I was going to turn him down then he would have done that before shooting the movie). We don’t relate cos he insisted on either dating me or being enemies and I had to choose”.

In July 2021, Adebimpe had earlier alleged that she was subjected to “constant harassment, bullying, and threats” by Fabiyi after she refused his s*xual advances.
Her comment had come in the wake of the release of Yomi Fabiyi’s film “Oko Iyabo” which has since been kicked out of YouTube.
“Yomi Fabiyi needs to be stopped. Enough is enough. Thank God for his grace, if not I would have given up on this dream because of his constant harassment, bully, and threats,” she had said.
However, speaking with The Punch, Fabiyi dismissed the allegation. He said although he indeed tried to woo her, he did not use force as she claimed.
“Ask her if she made s*xual advances to me and not vice versa. I did not notice her first. She was the one that noticed me. Besides, if we did make advances at each other, we are both adults,” he said.
The actor and movie producer wondered why Adebimpe would take s*xual attraction to mean s*xual harassment, describing such comparison as “silly.”
