The Nigeria Broadcasting Commission,(NBC) has issued a Not To Be Broadcast (NTBB) warning to traditional electronic media houses where it said Olamide’s new song. Science Student must not be aired.
The notification was sent to all radio and television stations across the country during the week.
“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,'” the Head of Public Affairs, NBC, Hajia Maimuna Jimada told Tribune while confirming the proscription of the song, adding “We have communicated all our licensees for compliance or they will face sanctions.
Olamide in the song like most others of his works, sings about the use of prohibited drugs such as Codeine, Tramadol, and how they are being mixed together with other substance by users whom he described as science student. He apparently likens the way the substance are being mixed by users to what science students do in the laboratory, which is mixing chemicals.
