Lagos State Government Trashes 'Gangs of Lagos' Movie

The Lagos Government has berated the makers and marketers of the Nollywood movie “Gangs of Lagos” describing it as mocking Lagos’ cultural heritage.

In a statement released by the Lagos state government on their site says that the movie “Gangs of Lagos” has portrayed a misrepresentation of the Lagos culture and also displays the culture of Lagos State in a derogatory manner.

The statement reads;

“A release signed by the Commissioner for Tourism, Arts, and Culture, Pharm. (Mrs.) Uzamat Akinbile-Yussuf said the Ministry, being the regulatory body and custodian of the culture of Lagos State, views the film/series as a mockery of the Heritage of Lagos.

“The Commissioner expressed her disappointment with the promoters of the film, Jade Osiberu, and Kemi Akindoju, for portraying the Eyo Masquerade as a gun-wielding villain while adorning the full traditional regalia.”

“We are of the opinion that the production of the film ‘The Gang of Lagos’ is very unprofessional and misleading while its content is derogatory of our culture, with the intention to desecrate the revered heritage of the people of Lagos. It is an unjust profiling of a people and culture as being barbaric and nefarious. It depicts a gang of murderers rampaging across the State”.
