NBC Restricts ‘Shoki’ by Lil Kesh, Davido & Olamide to be aired between 10PM and 5AM



Lil KeshOne major song that has been getting a lot of airplay in 2014 and 2015 is Lil Kesh’s ‘Shoki’ featuring Davido and Olamide.

It however looks like the airplay for the song on radio stations will have to be reduced.

According to a memo to all radio stations by NBC, the song can only be played between 10PM and 5AM due to the high number of foul impressions and obscene representations.

What are your thoughts on this?

    I just wish this was done before it became a hit. As a regulatory body your job is to have every lyrics screened and given appropriate labelling. This not only tacky but shows the NBC as an un serious organisation. Sadly this is the story of most Nigeria parastals charged under law to grade songs and movies in the Entertainment industry.

      That is typical of Nigerian Bodies- medicine after death. Too little, too late.

    Ahh!!! Shoki! Shoki means something else in Yoruba language but do we really listen to lyrics or we just dance to beats…

      The song is restricted based on influence to kids who probably can listen to radio during the day. NBC has done their part, the other is left to the parent that gives internet access to the kids to restrict what they can or can’t download or listen to. Because the there other means does it mean NBC or FCC should do their jobs?

    If you guys zoomed in on the memo, you would have realized that the ban is because of the IMPRESSIONABLE-the under-aged (most likely pre-teens) , which most of you aren’t. So chill. I haven’t heard the song or seen the video, however, most Nigerian songs (especially conventional ones) are a bunch of rubbish!
