Why FG Will Stop Production of Nigerian Movies, Music Abroad – Lai



The Federal Government (FG) says it has taken steps to amend the Nigeria Broadcasting Code to discourage the production of Nigerian movies and music outside the shores of the country.

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

The Minister decried the situation whereby films, reality TV shows and music, were made outside Nigeria, for consumption by Nigerians.


He said the situation had hampered empowerment of practitioners in the industry, the development of the sector and the nation’s economy in general.

“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,” he said.
