Entertainment! FG Plan to Ban Music Videos Shot Abroad Causes Raging Controversy

This is one of the most trending gists in Nigeria today. You must have heard that the Federal Government is planning to ban the shooting of music videos abroad. While some people are reacting angrily to this move, some others are saying it is a good move that will save our culture. Major stakeholders in the music industry have condemned this plan. In fact, the plan is such that one day you will go to jail for shooting a music video abroad. Peter Okoye of P-square has condemned this move by the Federal Government.

The All Progressives Congress(APC) youth renaissance group has fired a stinker at Peter Okoye of P-square for what they saw as an insult to the Federal government of Nigeria by Peter Okoye just because he spoke against this ban.

In a statement signed by the group’s national secretary, Mr Collins Edwin and made available to PoliticsNGR, the APC described Okoye as a ‘son of darkness’.

Information Minister Lai Mohammed says this ban will protect Nigerian values.

What is your contribution to this raging argument? Should the Federal Government go ahead and ban people from shooting Music Videos abroad? Do you think the move will save Nigerian values and protect us from being fed with foreign culture as Lai Mohammed argues?

  1. Shooting of music videos abroad has got nothing to do with values,worth or principles….FG should face their priorities first…..major things should be dealt with

    I also condemn it.. Haba, instead of them to eradicate recision they are here imposing some rules. We have our freedom to exercise our franchise ooo.

  3. It is a good move in other to save our culture. But on the other, music videos shot outside the country are better than the once shot in the country.

  4. opara chukwuemeka.w.Kenneth

    for me I don’t see any way it affects our values or principle because looking at the country many things are supposed to be looked into by the federal government and not this.

    They should look into other very pressing issues in Nigeria and let the minors be..

  6. wetin concern politics and music, abeg FG go sleep.

  7. It’s good in the sense that it helps to promote Nigerian culture but they have the right to shoot that video wherever they want…..

    Shooting videos outside doesn’t in way effect the values and principles of this nation.
    I think the federal government should look into more serious matters than need to be sorted.

  12. so now all of a sudden the federal government are awake? and of all problems to counter is the shooting of videos abroad??. how sad.

  13. Obi chikaodili Augustina

    They would have also said no one should be allowed to travel outside the country then buhari was alive…Did i say his dead?

  14. Shooting videos abroad has absolutely nothing to do with values or culture. Besides this issue does not rank even among the top problems Nigeria has. the FG needs to sort out its priorities.

  15. What is the business with the federal government to barn shooting movie video
