The Nigeria Film and Video Censors Board(NFVCB) has been delaying the release of the film adaptation of Chimamanda Adichie’s book ‘Half of a Yellow Sun’. This according to sources is due to the theme of the movie which is all about the Biafran war, which may garner controversy because of the current situation in Nigeria. Talented actor and ex-president of the Actors’ Guild of Nigeria, Segun Arinze, has called for the resignation of the Director-General of the Censors Board, Madam Patricia Bala, over the delay in release. Hear him:

“Please tell Madam Patricia Bala of Nigeria Film and Video Censors Board to release the movie Half of a Yellow Sun. She has no reason to hold on to the movie. She has no right to censor the movie only to classify it. She saw it in Canada and even partnered with the producers in Canada during the premiere. What she is doing now is an embarrassment to government and a big insult to our dear industry, Nollywood. We are not in a military regime. She should kindly resign”
