Spoilers ahead According to The Hollywood Reporter, the conservative country cut a 10-second scene which featured openly queer character Aneka (Michaela Coel) kissing Ayo (Florence Kasumba) on the forehead.

In addition to the aforementioned moment, a scene with the line “a god to his people” was also removed from the highly anticipated sequel.

Despite the series of cuts in Kuwait – which added up to one minute in total – the publication noted that the film would be screening unedited in countries like Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Qatar, Oman and Bahrain.
