The body in charge of regulating what goes on air, Nigerian Broadcasting Commission aka NBC has banned Wizkid‘s hit song the matter from airing in any radio station or TV channels in Nigeria.
Another song that was banned for being too sexually explicit is Phyno‘s man of the year.
The main trigger in the above song was the lyrics.
In the case of Wizkid’s back to the matter song
Here is a sensitive lyrics that called NBC attention;
“20 man shall fall that day if you cross my lane … Oya back to the matter open and close”
NBC claims this line is too sexually explicit for minors to watch therefore a permanent ban has been placed on it.
Phyno’s Man of the year song also has a sensitive lyric like oburu na okwero iba tee ya vaseline meaning if e no gree enter apply vaseline
This was made know yesterday by Beat FM’s On Air Personality Gbemi Olateru Olagbegi on her official Twitter page with handle @GbemiOO
@Tresemme There no debate on Linda’s distasteful classlessness which we are consistently privy to. So it is not a surprise. Now what is a surprise is a Nigerian celebrity with the morals of a experienced whoremonger questioning a grown woman on the status of her vagina. Obviously his sensitization is that he considers it an insult for a woman to be single, childless and even have liaisons with single men same way he does with women o, lol. This is chauvinism and sexism. We are battling such traits at the senate today. It is not a joking matter. This is not your typical Birkin bag saga. Genevieve and Rita Dominic’s marital status have always been called into question without these two people even doing anything to provoke anyone. You all can fight over petty stuff on whether Linda buys fake or not, you will never see me post in such topics, but the moment I smell misogyny I will call it out because these are the characteristics that deters female social progress. Linda has my utmost support on this one.
