SHARE

Remember that critically acclaimed Falz ‘This Is Nigeria’ song? Well, the National Broadcasting Commission, NBC thinks it is ulgar and has fined a radio station in Jos 100,000 Naira for playing Falz’ “This is Nigeria” song.

The National Broadcasting Commission, NBC, in a letter written to the station, informed them that Falz’ “This is Nigeria” song is “laced with vulgar lyrics” and for playing the song, they will be sanctioned.

The lyrics they pointed out that they had a problem with is the part that goes, “This is Nigeria, look how we living now, everybody be criminal.”

Also, the commission fined the station for playing Olamide’s song titled “See Mary, See Jesus.” The letter says Mary and Jesus are regarded as sacred by the Christian faith and as such contravenes section 4.3.1e.

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 says is vulgar.

NBC has asked the station to pay the fine of 100,000 Naira within two weeks, else they will be made to face stiffer sanctions.
