NBC Pronounces Olamide’s ‘Science Student’ Song “Unfit for Broadcast”


The Nigerian Broadcasting Corporation (NBC) has blasted a Not-To-Be-Broadcast (NTTB) warning on Olamide‘s latest single “Science Student“.

According to Nigerian Tribune, the warning was given to all radio and television stations in Nigeria over the week.

Confirming the news, NBC’s Head of Public Affairs Hajia Maimuna Jihada told Tribune that the song was not out-rightly banned but it had been prohibited from being played on local stations for public consumption. She said:

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 further went on to mention that the song’s subtle promotion of illegal drugs was the main reason for declaring it unlawful as she issued a stern warning to all broadcasting houses;

We have communicated all our licensees for compliance or they will face sanction.
