NBC Banned Olamide's Latest Hit Single, 'Science Students'

Following the Edo State Governor, Obaseki, urgent request to ban Olamide hit song, the Nigerian Broadcasting Corporation (NBC) has slammed a Not-To-Be-Broadcast (NTTB) warning on the song titled "Science Student" by Olamide. The Yemi My Lover crooner, has explained severally that his latest smash hit song is aimed at fighting drug abuse

The warning was served to all radio and television stations last week. Confirming the news, NBC’s Head of Public Affairs Hajia Maimuna Jihada told Tribune that the song was not out-rightly banned but prohibited from being played on local stations for public consumption.


She said:

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
