    NFVCB ko, NFVCB ni. Let’s see the movie already. We already know it is based on a touchy theme. #Nigeria-Biafra civil war.
    But we must tell our stories.

      Funny enough, I heard they censored it because of sex the scene(s), not because of the war plotline. Bunch of idiots. Whenever something good wants to happen in Nigeria, some ideological fool always comes out to stand in the way of progress. 170million people and growing… obviously we know what sex looks like.

    Please this is a love story set in the period, it has got nothing to do with politics
    NFVCB should understand that there are investments to be recouped here!

    This has nothing to do with the sex scene. Is this the only movie with erotic or sexual scenes? According to them,it is a sensitive story that may ignite ethnic tensions in a Natiön trying to confront its volatile political situation. For how long will Nigeria sweep this history under the carpets?

    I do not get this whole “touchy” subject. Can the Biafran war ever be more “touchy” than the Holocaust? or what the African American went through? Yes, there have been tons and tons of films based on these things. Its our History. We have a right to know about it and have discourse. Other countries embrace their history, why shouldn’t Nigeria? Why is Nigeria always her own enemy? Why?
