Papa Show, the popular Nollywood actor whose real name is Shoneye Olamilekan, has been suspended from AFRIMEK following accusations of physically assaulting his female colleague, Temidayo Morkinyo.
According to a report from Gossipinfo, Temidayo Morkinyo claimed that she was assaulted by Papa Show while they were on a movie set together. Taking to her Instagram story, she detailed the incident, stating that Papa Show and some other individuals barged onto the set in Ibadan, Oyo State, with the intention of attacking her.
In her posts, Temidayo alleged that Papa Show punched her in the face, resulting in a broken lip. The assault reportedly took place on Thursday, May 18, after she had reported his inappropriate behavior to their superiors.

Providing further context, Temidayo explained that Papa Show had rudely instructed her to fetch him a drink while they were on set the previous day. Although she felt disrespected by his manner of speaking, she complied with his request. However, she later decided to inform their bosses, Afeez Abiodun Seriki and Niyi Johnson, about his conduct. They assured her that they would address the issue with Papa Show.
In a shocking turn of events, Papa Show and a group of individuals arrived on the set the next day, intent on attacking Temidayo, presumably in retaliation for being reprimanded. This act of violence has left her in pain, and her family is now seeking justice for the assault.

Reacting to it, The African Men Entertainment Kings (AFRIMEK) in a letter signed by the Mayor, Femi Adebayo, has distanced itself from the actor.

His shameful act has left the association to sanction him and place him on immediate suspension, while further investigations are ongoing.
