FG Warns Against Releasing Skits and Music Videos Without NFVCB Classification

In a recent development, the National Films and Videos Censors Board (NFVCB) has issued a stern warning against the release of music videos, skits, and films without proper classification. This move aims to regulate the content being produced and protect viewers, especially children, from harmful material.

The NFVCB, known for assigning age ratings and content advisories to audiovisual content, plays a crucial role in guiding families on suitable viewing options. As part of this classification system, the Director General of NFVCB, Shaibu Husseini, recently announced the expansion of these requirements to include music videos and skits.

Speaking with, Husseini emphasized the importance of complying with NFVCB regulations. He stated, “It is also an offence to distribute or exhibit any film or video content, musical videos, and skits on any platform without recourse to the National Film and Video Censors Board for classification.”

Furthermore, Husseini stressed that the NFVCB is working in collaboration with relevant security agencies to monitor and apprehend violators who release unclassified material. Those found guilty will face legal consequences for their actions.

Additionally, the NFVCB expressed disapproval of the promotion and distribution of same-sex content on the internet. In Nigeria, it is illegal to publicly showcase same-sex relationships, and the board is determined to enforce these regulations.

This warning serves as a reminder to content creators and distributors to adhere to NFVCB guidelines to avoid legal repercussions. By seeking classification for their work, they can ensure that it is suitable for audiences and compliant with Nigerian laws.

As the NFVCB continues its efforts to regulate the entertainment industry and protect viewers, it underscores the importance of responsible content creation and distribution. By following the established classification procedures, filmmakers and artists can contribute to a safe and compliant media environment.
