Omotola Jalade Condemns 50 Shades Of Grey Movie Ban In Nigeria On Hip TV

50 shades of grey banned nigeria

March 18, 2015 – Omotola Jalade Speaks Against 50 Shades Of Grey Movie Ban In Nigeria

In an exclusive chat on Hip TV, Omotola Jalade Ekeinde speaks against the ban of controversial erotic movie, ’50 Shades of Grey’ by the NFVCB in Nigeria.

The Nollywood Queen said the ban imposed by Nigeria’s National Film & Censors Board is too harsh.

While defending the adult scenes in the movie, Omotola said the content is matured enough for its target audience and that the board should have disallowed children from watching it instead of banning it.

In her words:

“I don’t agree that the level of nudity and erotic scenes in the movie ought to be. But then, you know, romance and love is a part of life, but the explicit nature of the movie is what I don’t get; must it be that raw? I agree if that’s why the Censors Board banned it because we don’t want that in our society. But, I still believe there should be movies for specific types of audiences and 50 Shades of Grey is one of such. The movie is all about sex and erotic stuffs, so when you’re going in, you know exactly what you came to watch”.

50 Shades of Grey was also banned in India, the United Arabs Emirates and most Asian countries.

    theres a reason the movie was states 18 n over.. I dont understand why nigerian authorities had to ban the movie .. It is certified 18 n over gor the right appropriate age .. If nigerias security was really good , they wouldnt need to ban the movie , cos the cinema wouldnt even allow them.
    Here in the uk a child knws knws not to go into a 18 n over certified movie cos he or she knws they wouldnt be allowed in so they wouldnt even think of it
    D ban was too harsh
    Jheeze wise up niaja

    That’s what nollywood are trying to copy, it’s good to know what you go to theatre to watch so you won’t be supprice when you get there.

    Kudos to Censure Board. However, the Board needs to spread its tentacles to sanction some Nollywood/Ghollywood movies lest our children and even adults become sex slaves and the attendant effect on our culture and morality. If her statement is anything to go by, Omotola, has tacit support for the said movie to be aired in Nigeria. Personally, I feel erotic/nude (or whatever names they are called) should be off our airwave/cinemas.
    God bless Nigeria

    Those who banned it are those who will go behind to watch it. Our country is full of hypocrites. Like Omotola said it is for specific audience and should not have been banned.

    Now in this case, we don’t know where to avoid the firing bullets of illicit scenes from movies, the ban is absolutely useless, because most of Nigerian movies in this modern days are full of illicit and erotic scenes, even to the extent I don’t allow my children to watch them at all. And these sorts of movies promotes immorality to our society today.

    @mataya nudity ain’t satanic.There’s a clear difference between nudity and immorality.
    The ban of “fifty shades of grey” wouldn’t stop viewers from watching the movie even reading it. There’s something called Internet, that ban was utterly pointless. The movie clearly states 18 & above.
