The National Broadcasting Commission (NBC) has said it did not ‘ban’ the songs of Nigerian artistes; Olamide, Davido and 9ice.
Speaking to SIGNAL, the NBC head of public affairs, Mrs. Maimuna Jimada, said she was not aware of such a directive from the NBC.
“First of all, the NBC does not ban songs. We only insist that broadcasters exercise a sense of responsibility in the kind of content they allow to go on air. So even if the NBC has placed such a restriction… it does not constitute a ban.
The songs, reportedly banned by NBC are Olamide‘s “Wo” and “Wavy Level“; Davido‘s “Fall” and “If (Remix)“; and 9ice’s “Living Things.”
She also said the widespread image on social media, showing a list of the banned songs, is fishy.
“If you look at the report, you would know there was something fishy about it because the NBC is the National Broadcasting Commission and not a “Corporation” as being reported by the media outlets disseminating the news.”
What do you make of this? Should either one of these songs be banned? Or Not?
