Nigeria: Broadcast authority blacklists yet another one of rapper’s songs
Nigerian hip hop star Olamide has had a fourth song, ‘Don’t Stop’, placed on the Nigerian Broadcasting Commission (NBC) blacklist in less than a year, reported The Net on 16 March 2016.
In a statement, NBC said it banned the song from the country’s airwaves due to its “obscenity, being indecent, [and having] vulgar languages, lewd and profane expressions”.
In August 2015, NBC released an 18-song blacklist for songs and videos deemed to be too obscene or vulgar for the Nigerian public; including three of Olamide’s songs, one of which, ‘Bobo’, was another hit from the same 2015 album that features the latest banned song. As of the publishing of this story the official video for ‘Don’t Stop’ has over 1.6 million views.
