The gavel of the National Broadcasting Commission has come down hard
again, and this time it’s fallen on a select number of our music and
video favourites that have garnered massive plays on many transmitting
frequencies. These materials belong to a fine crop of artistes (both
home and abroad) including Nicki Minaj, Wizkid, May D, Phyno, Chris
Brown, Rick Ross, Davido, Iyanya and Olamide, just to mention a few.
The NBC’s reason for this ban ranged from obscene videos to vulgar
lyrics and violent display. Logically, by the artistes already
mentioned, you can guess the songs/videos involved.
By the commission’s directives, it is expected that these materials
will be yanked off listening and viewing stations while joining the list
of previously banned songs like Gobe, Nawti, Stupid Love, Caro, Ukwu and Shoki.
