We will ban music videos shot outside Nigeria soon - Federal Government

Lai Mohammed

Music videos as well as movies shot outside Nigeria would soon be banned, the Federal Government of Nigeria has disclosed.

The Minister of Information, Lai Mohammed made this known on Saturday in Lagos when he paid a visit to the headquarters of the Copyright Society of Nigeria (COSON).

"This government has agreed that henceforth, whatever we consume in Nigeria in terms of music and films, must be made in Nigeria"

"We cannot continue to go to South Africa or any other country to produce our films and then send them back to be consumed in Nigeria"

"The Broadcasting Code and the Advertising Code are very clear on this. For you to classify a product as a Nigerian product, it must have a certain percentage of Nigerian content."
