Turns out Nigerians won't be seeing more of Mr Grey as the much talked about 'Fifty Shades of Grey' has been banned by the National Film and Video Censors Board (NFVCB).

The much anticipated erotic movie 'Fifty Shades of Grey' premiered over the Valentine's weekend, and people can't stop talking about it.

The movie which hasn't been receiving positive reviews, has been smashing box office records.

'Fifty Shades of Grey' which showed in most major cinemas in Nigeria in it's first week of release, has been removed from list of movies showing in Nigeria cinemas by NFVCB.

'Fifty Shades of Grey' is a screen adaptation of E.L. James’s erotic book of same name.

It revolves around a literature student, Anastasia Steele, who meets a handsome but tormented billionaire named Christian Grey, whose sexual desires are channelled to dominance (BDSM).

'Fifty Shades of Grey' was banned in Kenya.

Do you think NFVCB is right to ban 'Fifty Shades of Grey'?
