In a bid to “sanitize” the Nigerian music industry of immoral songs and semi-nude music videos, the Nigerian Broadcasting Corporation (NBC) has placed a ban on the videos of popular music stars. Videos such as Olamide’s “Don’t Stop”, Wizkid’s “In My Bed”, Reminisce’s “Tesojue” and many more won’t be seen on Nigerian television screens any longer.
The move which has been applauded by parents and some stakeholders in the country will apparently help to clean up the state of the Nigerian music industry.
This is not the first time that the NBC will be embarking on such an “honest” move, however, it has failed to curb the continuous acceptability of such songs or videos by a wide number of Nigerians.
Interestingly, some of these banned songs could still be heard in bars, night clubs, and of course at home.
The following are songs and videos banned by the Nigerian Broadcasting Corporation:
Olamide – “Don’t Stop”, “Bobo”, “Falila Ketan”
Wizkid – “In My Bed”
Phyno – “Yayo”
Masterkraft – “Indomie” ft CDQ and Olamide
Reminisce – “Tesojue”
Lil Kesh – “Gbese”
May D – “Ibadi”
Naeto C – “Tony Montana” ft D’banj
Iyanya – “Gift” ft Don Jazzy
