Angry Nigerians calls for ban of new Hollywood horror movie ‘Children of the Corn’
Share this

Nigerians have taken to social media to cause a buzz due to the release of a Hollywood film with the name; Children of the Corn.

A movie promotion page announced on 21st of March that the horror flick has officially hit theaters but it got a plethora of response that it never anticipated.

Following the announcement, citizens of Nigeria on the microblogging platform, flooded the comment section and asked for the movie to not be brought to the country’s cinemas.

The reason for this is because of the word ‘Agbado’ which is Yoruba for corn, and it was popularized by president-elect, and former APC candidate Bola Tinubu, who talked about how it can be fed to youth who will be recruited in army while he was campaigning.

It became an internet meme that people used to make jokes and banter online, but the movie release which came after Tinubu won the presidential election caused a sour taste in the mouths of people.

While some people saw it as content that can be used to make jokes online, others called for it to be cancelled or banned from the shores of Nigeria.
