Olamide’s song Science Student will no longer be aired publicly thanks to an order by the Nigerian Broadcasting Corporation, (NBC) as they have declared the song “unfit for broadcast”.
The news reported by Nigerian Tribune stated that NBC has issued a Not-To-Be-Broadcast (NTTB) warning to all local stations in the country.
According to the report, the Head of Public Affairs, Hajia Maimuna Jihada confirmed this development, saying that while the song has not been banned because NBC does not ban music, the song has been declared ‘Unfit for broadcast’ hence cannot be played by any local station for the public else they face sanction.
“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’,”
“We have communicated all our licensees for compliance or they will face sanctions.”
