Controversial Yoruba film actor Yomi Fabiyi has refuted the s*xual harassment allegations levelled on him by actress Adebimpe Oyebade.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.”

“The most important thing is that there was no force. Do not make it look like because I am an actor, I do not have a right to have emotions or s*xual feelings,” he added.
“S*xual attraction is different from s*xual harassment. We need to educate these young people. We are talking about s*xual harassment and she is talking about ‘toasting’. Is that not silly?” iced me. Besides, if we did make advances at each other, we are both adults,” he said.
