Nigerian Tribune reported that, A Not-To-Be-Broadcast (NTBB) warning has been slammed by the Nigerian Broadcasting Corporation (NBC) on Olamide‘s latest single “Science Student.”
The Head of Public Affairs of the NBC, Hajia Maimuna Jihada told Tribune that the song was not out-rightly banned but prohibited from being played on local stations for public consumption. She said:
‘NBC does not ban music. Our mandate is on what goes on Radio and TV. Olamide’s Science Student has been declared ‘Unfit for broadcast’.
She stated further that the song’s subtle promotion of illegal drugs was the main reason for declaring it unlawful as she issued a stern warning to all broadcasting houses;
‘We have communicated all our licenses for compliance or they will face sanctions’
