Over the past few days, there had been news making rounds about the ban on some songs from Nigerian air waves.

Amongst the songs banned was Olamide's new single 'Wo' which caught the attention of federal government and ministry of health. The ministry disclosed that 'Wo' which Olamide mentioned cigarettes in contravenes Nigeria’s laws on tobacco advertising, promotion & sponsorship.
