Songs of Davido, Olamide and 9ice faced with broadcast ban from NBC

The National Broadcasting Corporation (NBC) has banned the broadcast of 5 songs from 3 prominent Nigerian artistes.

The corporation made public the list of the banned songs, saying it has banned the songs from being aired.

These banned songs include: Olamide‘s “Wo” and “Wavy Level”,  Davido‘s “Fall” and “If (Remix)”,  and 9ice‘s “Living Things.”

 NBC tagged the five Nigerian songs as “Not to be broadcasted.”

The decision to ban these five songs follows concerns raised by Nigeria’s Federal Ministry of Health in a tweet last Friday, saying that the video to Olamide’s “Wo” is in violation of the Tobacco Control Act 2015.

The content & video contains scenes that violates the ban on Tobacco Advertising, Promotion & Sponsorship provision of the act #ClearTheAir

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

What's your reaction?
