The National Films and Videos Censors Board (NFVCB) has issued a warning that the release of music videos, skits, and films without obtaining proper classification is against the law. The NFVCB’s classification system provides age ratings and content advisories to help families make informed viewing choices and safeguard children from inappropriate material.

Shaibu Husseini, the NFVCB Director General, previously announced in an interview with Thepaan that the board’s classification requirements now extend to music videos and skits. In a statement released on Wednesday, Husseini emphasized the illegality of distributing unclassified content.

“It is also an offence to distribute or exhibit any film or video content, musical videos and skits on any platform without recourse to the National Film and Video Censors Board for classification,” Husseini stated. He added that the board is working with security agencies to identify and prosecute those responsible for such violations.
