BN Bytes: National Broadcasting Commission Bans Wande Coal’s New “Go Low” Music Video

Published

 on

Barely a week and two days since Wande Coal‘s “Go Low” video premiered, the National Broadcasting Commission has given it the proverbial boot as the video has officially been banned.

The NTBB (not to be broadcast) ban however only restricts the video from being played on ‘Free-to-air’ TV stations – what this means is that viewers of cable TV stations can still watch the video as the ban doesn’t affect them from playing it.

Our sources state that “E-mails sent to the NBC were not replied as at the time of this report and neither has Mavin Records responded to news of their video ban.”

A lot of buzz on the Internet has surrounded this ban and a lot of people have resorted to accusing Kenny Saint-Best for inciting the ban of the music video for her showing disapproval of the video on Twitter.

In case you haven’t seen the video, here it is:

Please share your thoughts.

      First things first, I agree that there were a lot of “body showing” in this video but not nudity. The amount of ‘body showing’ in this video is ALMOST equal to a whole lot of other Nigerian videos I have seen…including but not limited to D’banj’s Mr enodowed remix: was that banned? (I am not vast in Nigerian music). However, that said, if Kenny needs to protect her kids and other youths, music video is not what she should focus on. A whole lot of other things including social media (sex chatting, FB/Twitter pictures) and the internet (porn) do worse damage and have easy accessibility. This is coming across like she had some previous beef with Wande Coal I was expecting to see worse display in this video and I reiterate, while there was a lot of skin showing, I don’t think it’s the worst we have seen!

    What is wrong with this video? I didn’t see any nudity, all I saw was some chics on bikini. She’s just an hypocrite!

    When KSB tweeted about it last week,I told myself it couldn’t be that bad and that maybe she was just overreacting. I eventually saw the video yesterday afternoon in the presence of my mum. Yea,she’s old school and she expressed her disgust as expected. I belong to the new school but I told myself that there’s a strong possibility NBC clamps down on the video. I’m not primitive in any way,but there was too much flesh in the video – that’s if we’ll be sincere with ourselves.
    Xty already said it “nudity won’t take us forward”.

    Good on NBC for banning and KSB for standing up for the truth. The level of soft porn in naija videos and films now is shocking.

    Ok, I tried to be indifferent, whilst I watched the video. Honestly not so much nudity, but the gal wearing the skin toned coloured bra nd pant is a big no, and there were too many screen shots of her and were dancing with water splashes, enhancing their nipples.
    Nudity is not equivalent to being sexy, look at chuddy k’s video of gaga crazy, most of the gals were decently dressed and they looked sexy and danced sexy to me………. Well the video been banned hmmmmm, don’t know if that was the best way to handle it.

    September 2, 2012 at 1:29 pm

    NBC banned the video,not KSB so give her a breathing space, ,she made a good point. and u don’t have to be sexy by almost been naked. if u do that u are just been cheap.

    Banning the music is none of my business as I don’t have any moral authority to determine what everybody should listen.The truth however is that,The music is WACK.
    Everything about the concept is horrible.I expected Wande Coal to have done better.Am not God but do you know why people like TUFACE will never fade in our consciousness?They understand the lifecycle of the music industry and branded themselves in sustaining it eve if they stay away for so long.

    C’mon people!!!!! THERE IS NOTHING WRONG WITH THIS VIDEO!!!!
    Geez …the children see worse in the streets and in CHURCH !
    The dance moves are not really provocative and I don’t see this encouraging rape .
    BTW the song is nothing to write home about 🙂

    I saw the video for the first time and also thought it was quite distasteful. Are we not tired of seeing bikini clad girls in videos? C’mon

  21. igbe

    September 2, 2012 at 2:45 pm

    ahn, ahn, the girl in the bikini is the cause of the ban. There are more videos i can recommend for censorship though. sad what has become of us, women are scantily clad and the man is covered fully. Just shameful

    September 2, 2012 at 2:49 pm

    To be honest, i’ve taken my time to watch the video very well. I can say 90% of the video was well shot and is really not explicit at all but….. “NA THAT GYAL” (that particular girl) for the remaining 10% naim dey cause all this wahala!

    Parents,open your eyes and be wise,now is the time to talk to your kids about their sexuality no matter how young u may think.u would be amazed what they watch on the web.theres nothing extraordinary in this video,what your kids watch on channel o is worse and u don’t monitor that,so who is fooling who?its high time parents spoke to their kids about this things,what d point in your son not allowed to watch a video like this yet he watches porn on his laptop or iPad .

      September 2, 2012 at 11:07 pm

      Excuse me if my son iS nt old enough to watch the video,, he is damn well not old enough to own an ipad or laptop.

      September 3, 2012 at 5:46 pm

      how about watching it on YOUR laptop or iPad when you are asleep/cooking/in the shower/ give it to him to play a game?

      Plus I bet your parental controls on DSTV and whatnot aren’t even set.

    September 2, 2012 at 3:34 pm

    well KSB has a point but i feel she went bout it the wrong way. Why must girls be the naked to be sexy in videos?

  29. Jess

    September 2, 2012 at 3:40 pm

    So kennysaintsumin is implying that the way a woman is dressed justifies her being raped? In 2012? Wonderful!

      September 3, 2012 at 5:52 pm

      As in. May none of her loved ones ever come in contact with a rapist – see if your lack of make-up and unkempt hair make any difference to him.

    i do see the angle that KSB is be is coming from-a lot of the girls were naked except for some skimpy pieces of material they were wearing. i will not allow my kids to watch this o! why was wande coal fully clothed…just wondering!

Na publicity stunt mixed wif beef and some form of truth sha. Buh her intention definately has got ulterior motives mehn

    September 2, 2012 at 5:37 pm

    dont see nothing wrong with this video, you can always change channel when children are watching , there are worse videos out there…i just don’t like the song…

  36. 123guy

    September 2, 2012 at 5:45 pm

    I absolutely concur with KSB’s views about the video. I believe there are much more better ways of making a stunning video. It all depends on the level of creativity of the director.

  37. konnie

    September 2, 2012 at 6:04 pm

    Irony of life. Kenny St Best makes a video, shake her bobs at the camera and it is okay. this just made me watch the video and I am yet to know why it was singled out for a ban.
    Other than raining on his parade, they have made his little song soar.

    I seem to remember them baning Oliver ( Don jazzy/Dbanji) song. Who is laughing now.

    September 2, 2012 at 6:21 pm

    Sex sells majority of the time especially when majority of the consumers of the product being sold are lovers of pleasure and shallow thinkers. That’s why all these videos have to be about girls in the club, cars, drinks, bars and money spraying. I wont blame them though. That was what their generation grew up watching in those african american hip hop videos. Let’s get creative and do something that is really inspiring. Like someone said earlier, we have a lot of issues pulling us backwards already and more skin will definitely not take us forward.
    Secondly, to blame the ban on just one person’s comment is pretty ridiculous. I feel more songs even need to be banned cos I feel that that regulatory authority had been sleeping before.

    twas raining…and d girl dancin wore a bikini d color of her skin…that made d dance more provocative…..yes it can spark a lot of wildfire with kids and teenagers but guess we have seen worse videos than these one…KSB take it easy….NBC tanx for takin note

    September 2, 2012 at 6:33 pm

    Did I miss the nude gal? Cos I didn’t see any nude gal. Prob if the chic had worn a brighter coloured bikini, she wldnt av appeared nude. Having said that though, it neva ceases to amaze me why gals choose to expose their bodies shamelessly and d guys r fully clothed. A better, more interesting video would still have been made with the gals fully clothed. KSB though I think shld keep her thots to herself. Kids are exposed to worse things online and its not this WC’s video that’ll cos a “crash in the stock market” – if u get what I mean.

    September 2, 2012 at 6:37 pm

    Whoever adviced the kid to bring in sex apeal into his music video advised him wrongly. Good music sells itself. If you want your music to sell simply play good tunes and people will keep buying and listening to it till the end of time. If I need to watch porn I know where to find one, and so do many.

    September 2, 2012 at 6:51 pm

    Well, since when has being clad in a bikini become nudity? There are so many videos in naija that display worse nudity and vulgar scenes than this one. And why on earth should a child be allowed to watch this????. I totally disagree with the NBC on this ban. As parents, we must be responsible for what our children watch. As a child, only child-friendly stations could be viewed once our parents were not home. Parents are way too lazy these days to password protect inappropriate tv stations and should be held responsible for moral negligence. Charity always begins at home!

    September 2, 2012 at 9:28 pm

    Okay. I just watched the video for the first time and for the sake of the kids, I’m glad it was banned. Not that they do not see enough nudity around them on the streets everyday, but why add this to all that?

  51. Bisi

    September 2, 2012 at 10:39 pm

    @Blacknight,pardon me but wot exactly are u implying???That Tuface is what pls???Or Tuface has never used string of girls in his video?Or only Tuface gets it right?Pls give us a break pls.All others are so very good in their own rights and more importantly,there are many cases in which some of these ppl beat Tuface hands down.Music is so very wide and no one can satisfy evry aspect of it.This overglorification of Tuface can be really annoying!I personally would always give him a pass mark if not for anything but his ability to still stay relevant till date owing to the fact that ‘s probably the oldest in the industry but that does not equate to him being portrayed like some mini GOD!Am NOT a huge fan of Wande Coal at all and wld pick Tuface over him almost anytime tho’ i must admit he can reach higher vocal notes than Tuface but pls the truth must be said.Wande is doing his thing,so also is Tuface but this sentimental attachment by some of u die hard fans of Tuface must to an extent stop!We are so fond of comparing ppl and its so damn wrong!
    @the person who is talking abt D’banj’s remix of endowed video,are u flipping kidding?Do u want to compare that with Wande’s Go low?U dint see other worse off videos to mention,its remix of endowed that popped off on ur mind abi?Na wa o.

    It’s so funny and yet very disappointing at how Africans are the first to drop their cultural values at any point in time and go for the so-called ‘western’ ones. Of course, this video will raise eyes in Nigeria, simply because our culture does not condone such. If it was America, of course it will be okay because their culture condones it, as ha been proven in their various music videos. Moreover, there is a board that controls these videos and of course there have been set rules for music videos. If the musicians don’t comply and are found wanting, they have themselves to blame.

    Finally, just because everyone is doing something doesn’t make it right.

    September 2, 2012 at 11:33 pm

    I for one think the Nigerian entertainment industry is emulating some bad habits from it’s western counterparts. Slowly but surely we (Nigerians) are becoming desensitized all in the name of ‘enlightenment’. When does ‘a little’ skin become too much? Or is a woman’s virtue no longer something to be valued and protected but rather parade up and down the street for all to gawk at? If that be the case, let the men also strip down to their skivvies/birthday suits after all, what is good for the goose right….?

    Dis Goes to all the Ladies u don’t nid to expose ya Body to be Sexy..Dt Video ws Sooooooo Wrong..Y ws Wande all clothed??

  57. Cross

    September 3, 2012 at 7:52 am

    I think its daft- y’all who think “why should you allow ur kids watch this?”. There’s NO way you can fully control what ur kids watch. WC’s addtion made it worse cos kids identify with people they know more…
    PS* But why do most of our nigerian videos talk or demo the same thing. 1- u look so hot. 2- i have to know you. 3- take you to my room/house.
    *Women are not sex toys… music vids however make me think otherwise*

  58. Cross

    September 3, 2012 at 8:02 am

    there’s nothing wrong in this video (and virtually all the Nigerian vids) right ? if only your daughter, sister, cuz … did all that dancing.

  59. Camron

    September 3, 2012 at 9:36 am

    i dont see anything wrong with the video talk less of nullity. its like singing at the beach cos those girls had their beach wears on. na wa ohhhh. i see other videos where ladies even expose their bodies than this one

  60. TESS

    September 3, 2012 at 10:08 am

    True. All of you who think there is nothing wrong with this video, when it is ur daughter or sister prancing around baring all or at least leaving little to the imagination, I wonder if u would find it all good. Think about it.

  61. brandigest

    September 3, 2012 at 10:20 am

    I don’t blame WC. If you don’t want you kids to watch a particular program on TV you make them do it. There are so many categories of TV viewers and as such must be catered for. http://www.brandigest.wordpress.com

    September 3, 2012 at 10:33 am

    I liked the video and Wande coal is such an amazing dancer…there’s something about him… FYI i sort of like really rough looking black men, find em sexy. GO WANDE!!!! all u pple talking bout ’till u see your daughter prancing about in such a video’ errr someone’s daughter has to do it hopefully if u raise yours not to take her clothes off in public, then it wont be her….hisssss yin yang pple yin yang!!! KSB can move to Yemen!

  63. Gee daY

    September 3, 2012 at 10:36 am

    She was in a Bikini, in the “rain” for pete’s sake! Wande Coal churns out Urban Music so Ms Kenny St Brown…Errrr your genre of music is contemporary!, its like Cheryl Crow-a country music artist in th U.S criticizing Waka Flock Flame or Nicki Minaj (also recording artists in the U.S) for being distastefull through expressing thier “urban” music genre vis -avis lifestyle through thier music and other media. Not sure if Nigeria’s version of democracy allows/advocates for freedom of expression as a democratic process to allow citizens express thier God given freedom. Ms brown you got a lotta haterism in your game, are ignorant, sound like a bigot and shif your feet like a hypocrate. Do I need to continue….?

  64. daniel

    September 3, 2012 at 12:11 pm

    Y is KSB having problem wit another man success, or is dis d only bikini video she has seen in naija. she should think of singin hit songs nd shotin gud videos. Wake up KSB plessssssss.

  65. Lubie

    September 3, 2012 at 12:30 pm

    What’s all the fuss about? Why should these musicians use naked girls all the time? To be fare they should start using naked boys and men to promote their videos. For ages girls has been used for marketing, advertisments and so on and so on, i am tired of seeing naked girls all about, thats why boys and men think it’s funny to lure girls into their trap and kill them even when they are not naked. Pls although we are in the twenty first century and we want to copy what the eurpeans do does’nt mean we have to copy some of the negetive ideas they have, come on guys!!!

  66. molarah

    September 3, 2012 at 4:50 pm

    @tolu, she called him out in public because he made the video PUBLIC. That’s just the common sense of that situation.

    And people, please don’t come here saying you don’t see anything wrong in the video and later start posting sorrowful or indignatory comments on stories of rape/molestation. Cause the correlation is clear for all to see. We didn’t as a society start getting sex-crazed and obsessed with sex when the visual stimulation from the media was absent/less than this. We have to start owning up to the fact that all these displays of obscenity in the name of entertainment are having a horrible impact on our kids and the society as a whole.

  67. lol

    September 10, 2012 at 5:56 pm

    i just hate dis KSB woman more daily…i fink CAN shld ban her for parading herself as a gospel artist.Her life is a bad example to kids,teenagers and all.

  68. charlikhoney

    September 20, 2012 at 2:46 pm
