8 songs that surprisingly escaped NBC’s axe. Photo: Filed
The Nigerian Broadcasting Corporation (NBC) recently banned 18 songs by Nigerian acts and their foreign counterparts from public broadcast. This development has since drawn reactions from many entertainers including veteran comedian, Ali Baba and rapper, Naeto C whose Tony Montana was also prohibited from broadcast for ‘depicting violence.’
It is however surprising that NBC which cited reasons such as ‘vulgar lyrics, obscene video and indecent exposure’, for banning the songs, left out some tracks which glaringly flouted all the regulations.
Some of these songs are listed below…
Shoki: Lil Kesh might have actually been describing a dance but he could have kept it clean like Orezi did on his own version. With suggestive lines like: ‘ bami wa omoge to ba yodi (find me a girl who would shoot out her bum), mi o ni k’o wa twerk to wa gbon’di (I am not asking you to twerk or shake your booty),’ one is forced to ask if he was really singing about a dance style. Just as we were trying to figure out what the young rapper was up to, label boss, Olamide came at us with: furo rabata we t’eku gbe wa saye ma lo ja bata ye mi o ma le salaye, bere lowo taye (an outrageous description of booty)’. But then, NBC left it off their list.
Ladi: It remains unknown what Olamide and Phyno were thinking when they decided to record this song. The track which features YBNL’s Lil Kesh is filled with vulgar lyrics from A-Z yet it surprisingly didn’t get banned by NBC.
