Nollywood star, Williams Uchemba, has decried the presence of sexual content in children’s cartoons and comics.
The actor took to his Instagram page on Tuesday to advise parents about protecting their children from such content.
According to him, the inclusion of such explicit material is a plan of ‘the enemy’ to influence children through what they watch.
“Parents protect your children at any cost. The enemy is completely out to disciple the ones he can, especially through what they watch. Because he knows the children hear with their eyes,” the actor said.
He added, “Since when did sexual content start being cool in kids cartoons and comics?? Kids hear with their eyes, protect them.”
Corroborating with his claim, Uchemba’s fans took to the comment session to also share their observations about the matter.
A fan, @de_vies_angel, commented, “Someone finally said it!!! I haven’t seen cartoons about children preaching the word of God..I haven’t seen a complete video of kids of 10 and below acting where they just teach and preach about God. Just some clips on IG about it happening live. Why can’t there be a movie about it too?. There are many kids out there. Instead, it is more sexual content.”
Another fan, @mhzbrainy, wrote, “Exactly! I saw one yesterday, I was so shocked that I couldn’t even let my nephew watch it.”
