Veteran actor Kanayo O. Kanayo has criticized the Federal Government’s recent approval of a ban on depicting money rituals, smoking, and killings in Nigerian films, skits, and music videos.

The government sanctioned this prohibition under Section 65 of the NFVCB Act 2004, aiming to restrict the promotion and display of tobacco, nicotine products, money rituals, and ritual killings in media.

Dr. Shaibu Husseini, the NFVCB head, announced this during a National Stakeholders Engagement on Smoke-Free Nollywood, held in partnership with Corporate Accountability and Public Participation Africa (CAPPA) in Enugu. He emphasized the urgent need for decisive action within the industry, highlighting the responsibility of parents, guardians, and stakeholders.
