Group Fights Against Porn In Nollywood

Some aggrieved movie directors under the aegis of Nollywood Crusader Directors have frowned at the rate at which soft-porn movies are indiscriminately uploaded on YouTube and other social media platforms in recent times.

They described the rate as alarming, saying it’s creating serious negative impression about the country’s movie industry.

In a statement signed by renowned actor, Charles Awurum and founder of Igbo film forum, Comrade Eze Harris Chuma, the group threatened to slam a ban on actors and actresses who feature in any pornographic movie.

The statement reads, “This is everybody’s fight. Many innocent young girls are being tricked or forced into accepting to act the indecent roles and some because of their innocence, childish brain, and hunger to become movie stars, willingly accept the roles, and even pay for it with their bodies or money.

“Those that have not gotten to the age of reasoning are the ones we cry for. Those above 20 years can go ahead and act their blue movies, if that is what they have agreed with their parents. They cannot be used by any concerned Nollywood Crusader directors. These young actors will be mothers and fathers tomorrow; they will sit and watch the shameful acts of their parents, years past.”

Hence the group says it has formed a task force that will work with security agencies in rooting out pornographic materials.

“Any actor or actress caught in the act will be isolated and punished accordingly. We have also agreed not to employ the services of the actors in any movie they are directing. We are talking today, for the sake of tomorrow,” he said.

    Thank you very sincerely for this move.  I wonder whether it is now that sex started where people use it like road business.  Put up that stand and stamp those useless people out of the movie business.  I always hate seeing these stupid movies, girls will behave like anyhow and expose themselves without recourse to nature.
    If there is a regulation and it stand, I think only genuine actors and actresses should feature in movies.
    thank you Charles, I did not know you are so moral except sometimes when you act a kind of foolish and naïve part which makes you look like a clown.  But now I know you have a strong and good moral ground against indecent movies.  Keep it up Charles and others.
