- Olamide, Davido and 9ice have attracted the wrong type of attention from the government
- Their songs have been declared not fit to be broadcast
- No official reason has been given for the songs been yanked off air
Songs by popular musicians Davido, 9ice, and Olamide have been banned by the National Broadcasting Commission (NBC). The songs have been banned from being aired on all local radio and TV stations.
The songs banned include If (remix) by Davido, Wo and Wavy Level by Olamide, and Living Things by 9ice. The artistes involved are yet to react to this latest move by the NBC.
NAIJ had earlier reported that Olamide’s Wo had been criticised by the ministry of health who said the song promotes the use of tobacco.
Living Things by 9ice had also been mired in controversy. Recall that another musician Falz had alluded to the song when talking about the need for artistes to stop glamorizing fraud in their songs.
It’s unclear as to why Davido’s If (remix) was banned. Perhaps the fact that the song featured veteran American artiste R.Kelly is a reason or its sexua*ly suggestive lyrics.
As soon as the musicians involved respond to NBC’s ban, be rest assured that NAIJ.com will bring you details.
