Half Of A Yellow Sun approved for release In Nigeria
7th July 2014 So, the Nigerian Film and Video Censors Board has finally approved the release of one of Africa’s most celebrated movies, Half of a Yellow Sun, on Friday.
But not without a catch. The movie has been rated 18.
Half of a Yellow Sun, which is based on the novel by celebrated Nigerian author Chimamanda Adichie, was previously held back from being released in Nigeria supposedly due to fears that it might incite violence in the country, because of its civil war theme.
The movie stars Nigerian-British actor Chiwetel Ejiofor, British actress Thandie Newton, Nigerian legendary singer and actress Onyeka Onwenu and Nigerian actor, model and musician O.C Ukeje.
Too bad some of you have to wait till you’re 18 to see it.
