Censors Board Bans Half of Yellow sun..

According to a Dailypost Report "The Nigeria Film and Video Censorship Board, (NFVCB), has banned the widely publicized and internationally acclaimed film, Half of A Yellow Sun which has been premiered in Nigeria.

The film promoters are making frantic efforts to remove the offensive sections and get the film approved.

Sources said that the film, an adaptation of Chimamanda’s Ngozi Adichie’s novel is being stopped from getting into the market due to the parts that tend to whip up tribal sentiments, especially on issues that led to the Nigerian civil war.

The filmmakers have further revealed that, “with the Boko Haram insurgency and the Adamawa State governor’s outburst, the NFVCB is living up to its billing.”

A terse statement issued by the film Producers on Friday also stated that the date for the movie premiere had been shifted . It reads, ”regrettably, the much anticipated release of Half of a Yellow Sun has had to be postponed as a result of delays in obtaining certification from the Nigeria Film and Videos Censors Board. The attached Press Release explains further.

”On account of your very kind support of the movie, we would appreciate your assistance with getting the message of the delay out in your usual professional and sensitive fashion.” The statement read.

You gotta be kidding me! I know peeps have been saying this movie had nudity but am sure the one to be released for the public could have been edited I mean thats why movies have  classifications and age restrictions for crying out loud!
