We did not ban olamide, 9ice, Davido’s songs – NBC
The National Broadcasting Commission (NBC) has said that it knows nothing about the broadcast ban on Olamide, Davido and 9ice songs
The NBC said it is not in the business of banning songs, saying by virtue of the broadcasting law, radio and television stations are to ensure that songs containing vulgar or suggestive lyrics and visuals are not aired.
Idachaba Armstrong, director of broadcast monitoring disclosed this to TheCable.
The ban notice, which was issued by the National Broadcasting Corporation, had been circulating on social media for the past couple of days.
Reacting, Armstrong said: “First of all, NBC is a commission, not a corporation.
“Nobody at NBC issued a statement to the effect. We can’t be issuing a statement on every album released in his country. The broadcaster has the responsibility to do the needful.
“NBC does not ban songs, we don’t have any business with the artistes. It is left for NBC to tell stations to ensure the songs and videos are fit for broadcast before putting them on air.”
