ANTP joins the NFVCB and other digital content censorship stakeholders
The Association of Nigeria Theatre-Arts Practitioners, ANTP, has joined the National Film And Video Censors Board, NFVCB, and other major stakeholders in creating awareness for digital content censorship.
This is coming after the NFVCB organised the annual digital content regulation conference in Lagos, Nigeria.
The ANTP National President, Alhaji Razak Oyadiran aka Baroka said the ANTP identifies with NFVCB’s ideologies on safe digital contents for youths and children saying, “We will try our best as the foremost indigenous artistes association to educate our members and the general public on the dangers of posting uncultured content in the digital space.”
The 3-day conference attended by stakeholders in the film and entertainment industry was the third edition held by the NFVCB.
At one of the sessions tagged ‘NFVCB-NETFLIX Safe Screen and Digital Entertainment Space Forum’, the NFVCB Executive Director, Adedayo Thomas said the board would clamp down on over-the-top streaming services violating Nigeria’s digital content law.
He lamented that though the board was challenged in monitoring the content pushed out by online platforms, it was working on expanding its capacity for effective monitoring.
The NFVCB boss commended OTT streaming service Netflix’s compliance with the digital content law and collaboration with the board.
