Na wa oo…. Nigerian Broadcasting Commission (NBC) and their banning music have come again. As if there aren’t other things to worry about, the NBC is worrying about what song is sending the wrong moral message, and has “provocative” lyrics and videos. Maybe the head of NBC should watch BET uncut one night (if that still comes on) or even BET 106 and park and see what is really provocative.
At the end of the day, these artists don’t create the problems we have in naija, they just sing about it. Femi Kuti didn’t invent nyashing(not a problem), Kelly Handsome didn’t start 419, Dbanj is not the only guy that likes babes in bikinis. Abeg free these artists and focus on other things. What will the NBC do if artists were singing about how many people they’ve killed like 50 cents, and Lil Wayne talked about? Kill themselves? Or when one ex-armed robber starts rapping? (there might be sef… I don’t know), or an ex-ashawo like Eve decides to start rapping and talking about all the Politicians she has banged? Maybe they’ll just ban music entirely in nigeria and we’ll be like Afghanistan under the Taliban…lol.
Anyways, here is a list of recently banned songs by Nigerian Broadcasting Commission (NBC) for vulgarity and indecency:
Enter the place – 2face Idibia
Dance for me – Duncan Mighty
Suddenly – D’banj
I wanna be close to you – D’banj
Nwa Baby – Flavours
Rigirigi – Flavours
Maga Don Pay – Kelly Handsome
