Veteran actor Kanayo O. Kanayo has criticised the Federal Government for endorsing the ban on smoking and for glorifying blood rituals and murders in Nigerian comedies, movies, and music videos. 

Under Section 65 of the NFVCB Act 2004, the government approved on Wednesday the “prohibition of money ritual, ritual killing, tobacco, tobacco products, nicotine product promotion, glamorization, display in movies, musical videos and skits.” 

Speaking at a National Stakeholders Engagement on Smoke-Free Nollywood in collaboration with Corporate Accountability and Public Participation Africa, or CAPPA, in Enugu, NFVCA chief Dr. Shaibu Husseini disclosed this.

Today, we are facing an industry emergency requiring bold and ambitious actions from all of us as parents, guardians and stakeholders,” stated the head of the NFVCB. 

The seasoned Nollywood actor responded to the ban by calling it “sensible nonsense.” He asserts that it is not the responsibility of Barrister Hannatu Musa Musawa, Minister of Arts, Culture, and the Creative Economy, to approve any action taken to gag the filmmakers.
