Veteran actor Kanayo O. Kanayo has taken a swipe at the Federal Government’s approval of the prohibition of smoking and glamorising of money rituals and killings in Nigerian films, skits and music videos.

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

NFVCA boss, Dr Shaibu Husseini, made this known while speaking at a National Stakeholders Engagement on Smoke-Free Nollywood in partnership with Corporate Accountability and Public Participation Africa, CAPPA, held in Enugu.

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

Reacting to the ban, Kanayo O Kanayo labelled the move as “sensible nonsense”.

According to the Nollywood legend, the Minister of Arts, Culture and the Creative Economy, Barrister Hannatu Musa Musawa has no job in approving a move to gag the filmmakers.
