NBC bans Davido, 9ice and Olamide’s songs, says they are unworthy to be aired.


The National Broadcasting Corporation (NBC)
has banned five Nigerian songs and tagged
them as “Not to be Broadcasted.”
The songs are: Olamide‘s “Wo” and “Wavy
Level“; Davido‘s “Fall” and “If (Remix)“; and
9ice‘s “Living Things.”
The songs have been banned from being aired
on all local radio and TV stations. The artistes
involved are yet to react to this latest move
by the NBC.
The Federal Ministry of Health had in a tweet
on Friday said that the video to Olamide’s
“Wo” is in violation of the Tobacco Control
Act 2015.
Veteran musician 9ice was accused of singing
the praises of alleged yahoo boys in his hit
song Living Things.

You recall popular comic rapper, Folarin
Falana, who is widely known as Falz da bad
guy, had sparked controversy after he asked
his colleagues to desist from glorying fraud.
Citing a line from 9ice’s single “Living
Things” to drive his point home, Falz said:
“I feel so strongly about this because
an entertainers you are a role model to
many especially your fans and youths.
Yet in your songs you sing and greet
all the yahoo boys and fraudsters. You
even mention their names personally.
You are destroying our future; please
stop it. As an entertainer you must sing
songs that portray our culture, save
and transform lives. Instead all you do
is give the younger ones the impression
that it is cool to do crime, its very
Rapper Falz’ statement at the time came after
the arrest of Nigerian pop star, Dammy
Krane, who was nabbed at Opa-locka Airport
in the United States for alleged credit card
fraud, grand theft and fraudulent
identification charges.
While many Nigerians praised the rapper for
speaking up, others had unkind things to
say. In response to the critics, 9ice explained
his song wasn’t promoting fraud:
“Living Things isn’t promoting fraud,
so to speak. The song is about an
individual who wakes up in the morning
needs to go and work and earn a
living. It’s not negative, it’s positive.
You just have to be in that realm to
understand what the song is all about.”
