The National Film and Video Censors Board (NFVCB) has denied report that made the rounds that it banned Science Student, a music album from the stable YBNL boss, Olamide Adedeji, for allegedly promoting hard drug consumption and crimes.
Contrary to the report, the NFVCB Director General, Alhaji Adedayo Thomas said the album was neither banned by the agency nor was it promoting ills in the society.
“If you look at the short video of the track, you cannot see Olamide himself there. That is one. Two, we are in the internet age where a lot of things fly. What we need to do is to encourage our children to take only the good side of the internet and leave the bad side.
“The very week Olamide released that record, he released a press statement saying the song is a caution for people not to mix things together and take it as intoxication. So you don’t expect us to ban it just like that when he had explained why he sang the song,” Alhaji Thomas told Daily Trust.
