The Nigeria Film and Video Censorship Board, (NFVCB), has refused to certify the widely publicized and internationally acclaimed film, Half of A Yellow Sun which premiered in Nigeria two weeks ago and was supposed to hit the movie cinemas this weekend.According to reports, the film, an adaptation of Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie’s novel of the same name, is being stopped from getting a public release because certain parts "tend to whip up tribal sentiments, especially on issues that led to the Nigerian civil war." There is also some nudity in the movie.Biyi Bandele on Facebook, answered fans who had expressed concern about not seeing the movie billing at their favorite Nigerian cinemas. He said, It's all true: The highly anticipated release of Half of a Yellow Sun in Nigeria has been postponed to 2nd May 2014, due to delays in obtaining certification from the Nigerian Film and Video Censors Board for the public release of the film. . . .
