NBC BANNED OLAMIDE SCIENCE STUDENT HIT SONG FROM PLAYING ON AIR HENCEFORTH.
National Broadcasting Commission (NBC) has placed a Not To Be Broadcast (NTBB) warning on street rap king Olamide’s latest hit track ”Science Student”.
Virtually all radio and television stations across the country during the week got the notification proscribing the song from being broadcast.
According to Saturday Tribune, NBC Head of Public Affairs, Hajia Maimuna Jimada on Wednesday confirmed NBC’s take on the song which has already garnered thousands of views on Youtube. The statement says:
“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 said.
Jimada further gave a hint on why the song should not be broadcast as: Profligate mention and the subtle promotion of illegal drugs. While also issuing standing warning to all broadcasting corporations within its jurisdiction.
Although Olamide came out to clear the air on the true meaning of ”Science Student”, NBC sure has a different opinion about the street jamz.
