New Video Alert: Olamide -Science Student
Olamide’s latest single ‘Science Students’ which many said supported drug abuse by youths, and the rapper’s claim that the song is aimed at fighting drug abuse, a Not-To-Be-Broadcast (NTTB) warning has been slammed on the song by the Nigerian Broadcasting Corporation (NBC).
NBC’s Head of Public Affairs Hajia Maimuna Jihada who confirmed the ban on the ‘Science Students’ single, told Tribune that the warning was served to all radio and television stations last week, and though the song was not out-rightly banned, however it was prohibited from being played on local stations for public consumption.
“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 further went on to mention 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 licensees for compliance or they will face sanctions” she said.
