Censor Board Delays Release of “Half of a Yellow Sun” in Nigeria

The Nigeria Film and Video Censorship Board, (NFVCB), has refused certifying the widely publicized and internationally acclaimed film, Half of A Yellow Sun which has been premiered in Nigeria.

The adaptation of Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie’s novel is being stopped from getting into the market reportedly due to parts in it that tend to whip up tribal sentiments, especially on issues that led to the Nigerian civil war. Reports say “with the Boko Haram insurgency and the Adamawa State governor’s outburst, the NFVCB is living up to its billing.”

So, right now the film promoters are making frantic efforts to remove the offensive sections and get the film approved.
