The National Broadcasting Commission (NBC) has banned singer Falz‘s “This is Nigeria” cover, Wande Coal & Dj Tunez’s “Iskaba” and “See Mary See Jesus” by Olamide & DJ Kaywise.
According to an OAP, Folaranmi Folayan, her organization was fined a sum of one hundred thousand naira for playing the above-mentioned songs because they contained ill-mannered and indecent lyrics.
See NBC’s press release below.
Apparently Falz's line "this is Nigeria; look how we living now. everybody be criminal" has been flagged "vulgar" and the song is now declared "unfit for radio".
See why sometimes I can't blame our musicians if they choose to give social commentary a wide berth? pic.twitter.com/7bp3ZENluK
