Homosexuality: Nigerian government board sets up panels, may ban Bobrisky’s new movie

The National Film and Video Censors Board has set up three panels to analyse and classify a film titled, “Bobrisky in Love”starring Idris Okunneye aka Bobrisky.

The movie was produced by Nollywood Namaste Production company while Ken Steve Anuka was the director.

In the movie, Bobrisky portrays a transgender woman named Cherechi who travelled out of the country as a man only to return to the village as a woman to the chagrin of his fiancee and relatives.

In the soundtrack of the movie, members of the public are encouraged to accept Cherechi aka Cherry B as a transgender.

However, a top official of the NFVCB told Punch that three separate panels have been set up at the zonal levels to classify the Bobrisky movie.

He, however, said it must be noted that Nigeria has laws that prohibit homosexuality and therefore work of arts that promote it cannot be endorsed by the government.

The NFVCB is the regulatory body set up by Act No.85 of 1993 to regulate films and video industry in Nigeria.

The board is empowered by law to classify all films and videos whether imported or produced locally.

It is also the duty of the board to register all films and video outlets across the country and to keep a register of such registered outlets among other functions.

The movie, which was released a few weeks ago already has over 500,000 views on YouTube and has garnered thousands of comments.
