Kanayo O. Kanayo, a renowned Nollywood actor, has expressed his strong opposition to the ban imposed by the Nigerian government on money rituals in films.

Alongside other influential figures in the country’s movie industry, he firmly disagrees with the new restrictions implemented by the government.

The ban, which encompasses rituals and other portrayals in films, music videos, and skit contents, was approved under section 65 of the NFVCB Act 2004 by the Minister of Arts, Culture and the Creative Economy, Hannatu Musawa.

Kanayo criticized the policy, referring to it as “unreasonable” and questioning the rationale behind Barrister Hannatu Musa Musawa’s endorsement of such limitations on filmmakers.

In his words, “Arrant nonsense. This minister has no work, just like lair Mohammed.”
Additionally, veteran musician Mike Okri expressed his doubts about the government’s intentions, suggesting the ban might be an attempt to undermine the film industry.
In other news, Veteran Nollywood actor Kanayo O Kanayo has advised the Igbo people not to take part in the planned statewide demonstration against President Bola Tinubu’s federal administration.The protest comes amid the country’s current economic difficulties.

In response to the nation’s financial difficulties, Kanayo issued the warning in a widely circulated video that was posted on his official Instagram profile on Saturday night.

The actor warned that Ndigbo must join Davido in singing his unavailable song since Igbos are often the target of everything in Nigeria.

Kanayo said that although the economic crisis is regrettable, Igbos in Nigeria cannot be trusted with protesting or with leadership positions.

“Hunger has no religion. I have been looking for stores where only Muslims or Christians buy but I can’t see. So, I want to urge all Igbos to sing along with Davido’s ‘I’m unavailable’. Ndigbo are not available for protest in Nigeria.

“It’s unfortunate that we are all going through this economic hardship but the fact is we are not available because in our own matters.

“We are always the target, we should learn from what happened. Let’s guard ourselves and ensure that people who said we cannot be trusted with leadership, we also want to tell them that we can also not be trusted with protest.”
