#Nollywood: Censors Board Bans “Sugar Rush” from Nigerian Cinemas- Banky W reacts.

The National Film and Video Censors Board (NFVCB) has banned Jade Osiberu’s film 'Sugar Rush' from being shown in Nigerian cinemas, with the board saying the temporary approval for the film has expired.
The film was  released within last December and stars Banky W, Bimbo Ademoye, Bisola Aiyeola, Adesua Etomi-Wellington, Toke Makinwa, Tobi Bakre, Omoni Oboli, Williams Uchemba, others.

Though there are rumours that the movie was yanked off Nigerian cinemas for portraying the operations of EFCC in a way not pleasing to the government.

Meanwhile, Banky W has reacted to the ban: If you saw @sugarrushmovie and loved it, or if you planned to, please read our statements. We are very hopeful and optimistic that the film will be back on screens in a few days, so please don't give up on us, and please stay optimistic with us.
Your love and support means the world to us. Thank you to @nfvcb for helping us rectify any issues. Pls stay tuned, by God's grace you will see our film again VERY SOON. Pls stay positive people!! Love you all”.
