NBC bans hit songs from D’banj, Wizkid, Davido, 23 others

The Nigerian Broadcasting Commission (NBC) has reportedly placed a ban on 25 of your favourite songs including hits from D’banj, Wizkid, Davido, Olamide and Timaya.

The commission allegedly sent out a circular to media houses this week. On December 6, 2013, on-air-personality Gbemi Olateru-Olagbegi named a list of affected songs stating that NBC placed the ban on them because they contain ‘obscene lyrics or visuals’.

The ban also extends to a number of foreign songs including Rihanna‘s ‘Pour it up‘, Kelly Rowland‘s ‘Ice‘, Miley Cyrus‘ ‘Wrecking ball‘, 2chainz‘s ‘Birthday‘ and Dubai singer Ash Hamman‘s ‘Thirsty for you’.

Earlier in the year, the NBC banned eight videos claiming their contents were not suitable for broadcast.

NET has reached out to the commission but is yet to get a response.

Check out the full list of newly banned songs.
