“Sugar Rush”, a film that was suspended from showing in cinemas across Nigeria, has been reinstated. The National Film and Video Censors Board (NFVCB) last week explained its reason for suspending the screening of the film, “Sugar Rush”.
NFVCB took to its Instagram page to reveal that the suspension was because the temporary approval given for the film exhibition had expired.
The Executive Director of the Board, Adedayo Thomas, later took responsibility for the final approval of the film.
Meanwhile, the producer of the film, Jade Osiberu in an excited mood later announced that “Sugar rush” was back in cinemas. In her post, she thanked everyone who reached out during the ban. She went on to thank the NFVCB for helping get the film back in cinemas across Nigeria.
“We got such an outpouring of love in the last week. I couldn’t respond to all the calls and messages but your kind words and prayers were very encouraging ❤️❤️❤️. Thank you so much, everyone. Thanks in particular to @alhadedayothomas and the @nfvcb for helping to get us back on the big screen and for the unwavering support of the industry.”
