Lol! We Did Not ban Olamide,Davido, And 9ice Songs NBC Says.

Published

on

The National Broadcasting Commission (NBC) has refuted media reports that it has banned the songs of Olamide, Davido and 9ice. News of the National Broadcasting Corporation NBC banning the songs has been rife on social media in the last few days.

However, in a swift reaction to the news, the Director of broadcast monitoring, NBC, Idachaba Armstrong, told The Cable in an interview, that the ban notice on ‘Wo’ and ‘Wavy Level’ by Olamide, ‘Fall’ by Davido and ‘Living Things’ by 9ice did not emanate from the commission.
“First of all, NBC is a commission, not a corporation. Nobody at NBC issued a statement to the effect. We can’t be issuing a statement on every album released in his country. The broadcaster has the responsibility to do the needful. NBC does not ban songs, we don’t have any business with the artists. It is left for NBC to tell stations to ensure the songs and videos are fit for broadcast before putting them on air. It is the responsibility of broadcasters to ensure they don’t come on air. They are supposed to do what is called gate-keeping and they should have editorial control over their content but broadcasters now carelessly air songs without exercising that editorial discretion. They abdicate that responsibility and then expect us to start chasing them. ‘The songs are actually offensive’

Speaking further, Idachaba said “I have reliably gathered that some of those songs are actually offensive, regarding the lyrics. Some of these songs are for clubs. These stations that should practice self-regulation are lazy and unprofessional in their conduct.”

The NBC official said broadcast stations that air offensive songs would be fined by the commission.

“We will impose the necessary sanctions on the stations. If the stations contravene any of the broadcast code, they will be fined. Once NBC picks it up, we call the stations to order and impose the necessary fine. First, we caution you, then impose a fine afterward, which can be between 50-100k. But if they are recalcitrant, it can rise to 500k.”

The former Big Brother Naija season 6 reality star Angel Smith,

has revealed what scares her the most about marriage.

sleeping with your partner without protection, despite not knowing if their partner is cheating or not, is worrisome.

She wrote:  “I think the scariest part of marriage; FOR ME, is that you actually don’t really have a decision in terms of using protection, you expect your partner to be loyal but it’s many people outchea cheating on their partners without using protection.

“Like at least in a relationship outside of marriage I can choose to simply use protection throughout but like marriage sorta scraps that off the table and I am too much of a hypochondriac.

“I’ve seen too many bizzare stories of people infecting their husbands/wives with stds and I want no part AT ALL Lmfaooo.

“The story where the husband knew he had gotten hiv, gave it to his wife, she got really ill and he knew that was what the problem was, still didn’t tell her and then she found out when she was almost d*ing. It’s a no from meeee dawggg.”
