The National Broadcasting Corporation (NBC) has tagged five Nigerian songs as “Not to be Broadcasted.”

The corporation released the list, saying it has banned the 5 songs from being aired.

The songs are: Olamide‘s “Wo” and “Wavy Level“; Davido‘s “Fall” and “If (Remix)“; and 9ice‘s “Living Things.”

The Federal Ministry of Health had in a tweet on Friday said that the video to Olamide’s “Wo” is in violation of the Tobacco Control Act 2015.

Rapper Falz had also in June criticized musicians who glamorize fraud with their lyrics, a criticism fans took to be directed at 9ice for “Living Things.”

    Methinks NBC is a tad late to the ‘parry’.
    Does NBC control the internets or the streets?

      I had to go look for 9ice’s song and Olamide’s Wo. Those two are lewd. But, Davido’s? Why? But then l do understand the body has to function. My niece who is 15yrs and home in Naija for the summer hols asked me why the “banana fall on you…” in Davido’s fall. According to her, what has banana got to do with falling? Since we were washing plates and gisting, me, l just moved on to something else. How do you explain that to a 15yr old. So, l get what NBC has done here.

      9ice’s Living things encourages fraud, drugs and 419.

      I bet you were alive when the the US president Obama banned Akon’s; ” I wanna fuck you”!
      So, NBC has every right to put a ban on any music that will cause more damage to the general society.

    They’re banning them from public broadcast and this doesn’t intend to infringe on anyone’s rights because anyone can do whatever in private. People watch porn in private but it is regulated on public tv so you have to pay or make an extra effort to get it..

    . Likewise 13 year olds watch PG 18 movies but regulatory bodies still need to function to regulate content….it’s another way to sensitize the public on various vices or concerns ( health, moral etc) that these media could have. I didn’t notice the smoking scene in Wo until I saw the reason for the ban I went back to check….and I don’t think it’s a bad idea….

    NB: The Music channels on Satellite are not from Nigeria except Soundcity & Hip TV so they will even play the videos more than before. By the way, the internet is very much around and open (at least for now before Nigeria starts Internet censorship) and will they stop DJs from spinning the tracks? No. This ban makes no sense and is ultimately useless

    Clearly, the right thing to do but its quite belated, I feel so sad n ashamed as a Nigerian when I observe & decipher how degenerated the society has become/ is still yet to be. The cliche ”if you can’t beat them, you join them, has eroded dignity, respect n core values, which should be the hallmark of a cultured society.
    What is it with the craze of the western world, social media & its shenanigans??? What underlying messages are this so called in vogue music trying to pass across??? Gross immorality, fraudulent & unhealthy vices which impair the minds n souls….
    Until we look inwards, and dare to be different as a person & a society as a whole in the cancer of immorality ravaging the world, we, the should be innocent children & our unborn generations would only be wasted! Thumbs up NBC.

    Hmmm. Its understandable if you ban song because of the meaning it interprets and scenes. But does the NBC do beyond putting a ban on songs? The question is what effort do they make to promote other songs that are not on the ban list.
    Most of these artist go through hell to make their songs popular and all the NBC does is sit and ask for dues or place a ban on songs. IT NOT FAIR!!!

    @Lliki, I tire o. Whenever I write something good, sensible, and well explained, that’s how they will pocket it. There’s an article I took time to explain to answer/correct a commenter, after writing it, BN told me its awaiting moderation, not knowing that its awaiting moderation to the trash bin. BN! BN!! BN!!! Continue
