Censors board ban Chimamanda’s Half of A Yellow Sun



The Nigeria Film and Video Censorship Board, (NFVCB), has banned the widely publicised and internationally acclaimed film, Half of A Yellow Sun which has been premiered in Nigeria.
But reliable sources told our correspondent Abuja that 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 Ngozi Adichie’s novel is being stopped from getting into the market due to parts that tend to whip up tribal sentiments, especially on issues that
led to the Nigerian civil war.
The filmmaker further revealed that, “with the Boko Haram insurgency and the Adamawa State governor’s outburst, the NFVCB is living up to its billing.”
Half of a Yellow Sun is a 2013 Nigerian drama film directed by Biyi Bandele and based on the novel of Adichie. The film is a love story that follows two sisters who are caught up in the outbreak of the Nigerian Civil War and stars Chiwetel Ejiofor, Thandie Newton, Onyeka Onwenu, Genevieve Nnaji and OC Ukeje.
