Sugar Rush is Back to Cinema!!!
The screening of Sugar Rush in Nigerian cinema which was banned by the National Film and Video Censors Board (NFVCB) have been lifted.
This came after a permanent approval was granted to the movie that began screen in the cinemas on December 25, 2019 but was banned due to a temporary approval it had.
The Executive Director/CEO of the board, Alhaji Adedayo Thomas disclosed in a press statement stating that the unprecedented successes of the creative industry were responsible for the nation’s award as the Emerging Film Market at the Official Convention of the National Association of Theatre Owners (NATO), CinemaCon, Las Vegas, USA.
He also noted that the board improved capacity of its staff and this led to the confiscation and recent destruction of over 500million naira worth of bootlegged and pirated video works.
According to him, “The past week has been eventful for us as an organization with diverse speculations in the media on the perceived ban of Sugar Rush movie at the cinemas while we were still doing our due diligence on the movie for final approval.
“We are pleased to inform the general public that the movie has been classified and granted final approval for public screening.”
