New movie ‘Bobrisky In Love’ may be banned as Nigerian government analyses it

The National Film and Video Censors Board is set to analyse the movie titled, “Bobrisky in Love” that featured internet sensation, Idris Okunneye, popularly known as Bobrisky.

Inset: Postal copy of the movie, Bobrisky in love.

In the movie, Bobrisky plays the role of a transgender who travelled out of the country as a man named Cherechi but returned to the village as a woman named Cherry B, to the shock of his fiancee and relatives.

A top official of the NFVCB told The Punch that three separate panels have been set up at the zonal levels to analyse and classify the movie and it could be banned seeing as Nigeria has laws that prohibit homosexuality, therefore work of arts that promote it cannot be endorsed by the government.

He said, according to the publication:

We have set up three different panels to view the movie which was given to us by the producers for classification and review.

For the purpose of fairness and objectivity, we will not give specific details since evaluation is still ongoing but note that any movie that promotes homosexuality in contravention of our laws cannot be endorsed.

Latest by next week we will deliver a verdict on the movie. If the movie is banned, it would be communicated to the producers and our enforcement team would mop up all copies of the film on the market and defaulters would be apprehended and fined appropriately.”
