The National Broadcasting Commission (NBC) has banned five songs by major Nigerian musicians — Olamide, Davido and 9ice — having considered them offensive for broadcast.
The banned songs are Olamide’s “Wo” and “Wavy Level”, Davido’s “Fall” and “If (Remix)”, and 9ice’s “Living Things”.Image result for olamide picture

The corporation released the list Tuesday, saying it banned the five songs from being aired across the Nigerian airwaves, reported online news medium, Premium Times.
The Federal Ministry of Health had in a tweet on Friday, said the video to Olamide’s “Wo” violated the Tobacco Control Act.

The 28-year-old rapper, who is signed to his own record label, YBNL, had returned to Ladi Lak in Bariga where he was raised to shoot the video of his latest single.
“This is our position: the video contravenes the Act. Innocently or otherwise, Tobacco promotion advertising sponsorship is banned in all forms,” the NBC said.Image result for davido pictures 2017

It could not immediately be ascertained why the songs of the two other musicians were banned.

This is not the first time that an Olamide song will be banned by the regulatory agency.
In 2016, just a few months after the ban of one of his songs, “Shakiti Bobo,” NBC also banned “Don’t Stop”, a track from Olamide’s fifth studio album, Eyan Mayweather, for its vulgar lyrics.

Defending the decision at the time, the NBC said the song was banned from being played on the airwaves for its “obscenity, being indecent, vulgar language, lewd and profane expressions”.
Rapper Falz had also in June, criticised Nigerian musicians who glamourise fraud with their lyrics, a criticism fans took to be directed at 9ice for “Living Things”.

The actor and rapper stated that the recent trend of hailing internet fraudsters in music was not helping future generations, as young people were beginning to see this as a normal way of life.
He recalled the personal experience of the challenges faced by Nigerians in other countries as a result of cybercrime.Image result for 9ice pictures 2017

Nigerian Stars Wizkid, Davido, Olamide, other shunned 2016 NEAs

NEAAs reports have it , it has become peculiar with almost every event held in Nigeria, the 2016 Nigerian Entertainment Awards in New York had an ‘African time’ delay.

The annual award ceremony’s 11th edition, which was scheduled to start at 11pm (Nigerian time) didn’t begin until a few minutes before 3am.

Unlike last year’s event that had top entertainment personalities in attendance, several acts like Wizkid, Davido, Olamide, Lil Kesh,Tiwa Savage, Yemi Alade, Falz and many more who bagged nominations in various categories didn’t turn up for the award ceremony.

While many celebrities went to their social media pages to solicit for votes from their fans when the nominations were announced, very little  mention was made about being at the event on the day as the venue was left almost empty.

YBNL singer Adekunle Gold who won the award for ‘Best New Act’ and Niniola were among the few celebs in attendance.

This further raises previously held questions about why an award ceremony for Nigerian entertainers needs to hold in the United States.

Perhaps, the skyrocketing exchange rate could have been a reason for the absence, or maybe they just don’t regard the award ceremony important enough for their time and presence.
