Nigerian music sensation Falz, has reacted to the banning of his song ‘This is Nigeria’ by the National Broadcasting Commission.
This ban was disclosed in a letter from the NBC dated 6th August 2018 and signed by its Zonal Director, Igomu Onoja.
NBC fined a radio station in Jos N100,000, for playing Falz’ ‘This is Nigeria’ song.
According to NBC, a part of the song – “This is Nigeria; look how we living now everybody be criminal” has been tagged “vulgar” and the song is now declared “unfit for radio”.
Reacting to the development via his Instagram handle, Falz said the entire situation was hilarious.
Also, the commission fined the station for playing Olamide’s song titled “See Mary, See Jesus.”
The letter said Mary and Jesus were regarded as sacred by the Christian faith and as such, the song contravened the law.
The station was also cautioned for playing Wande Coal’s Iskaba with the lyrics, “Girl you dey make me kolo, shaking the ass like kolo”, which NBC described as vulgar.
