Nigerian Artist

The recent Nigerian Broadcast Commission (NBC) ban on the musical videos of some Nigerian artistes has continued to spark off a trail of reactions. Fans are faulting the NBC ban on twitter and facebook,

and we now have reactions from some of the artistes involved.


In response to the NBC ban, Psquare’s publicist, Bayo Adetu said, ‘we also just saw the story online this morning and we do not think that the NBC’s ban is justifiable’.

Mavin Records’ artiste, D’Prince tweeted, ‘Apparenty NBC has banned take banana video and some others? …Oh well more videos in works’.

Rising afro-hiphop star, Tillaman in his reaction had this to say, ‘So they banned my Koma Roll video… We ain’t letting this stop us! Expect our reply coming up in a bit’.

Also commenting on the ban, KCEE of the disbanded pop group, KC Presh tweeted, ‘I think we have some drunk people working in NBC, what’s wrong with the videos they just banned?’

The Nigerian Broadcast Commission (NBC) who has always exercised its power to regulate the contents on Nigerian television and radio stations especially in recent times placed a NTBB ban on a new set of music videos.

It would be recalled that videos like Femi Kuti’s ‘Bang bang bang’, Konga’s ‘Baby konga’, and most recently, DJ Zeez’s ‘Body Language’ have also come under the axe of the NBC.

In a release by the NBC, the videos classified as ‘not to be broadcast in whole or in part’, were banned for different reasons. The videos include and the reasons are as follows:

1. Tillaman ft. Vector- Koma Roll (contains erotic and suggestive dance steps)

2. Wande Coal- Go Low (scenes of nudity in the video)

3. D’Prince – Take Banana (contains erotic, vulgar words and suggestive dance styles)

4. Flavour- Shake (vulgar and suggestive dance steps)

5. Goldie- Ski Bobo (featuring a minor with suggestive and immoral dance steps)

6. Chuddy K- Brazilian Hair (features children and ladies with suggestive and erotic dance steps)

7. Timaya- Shake your Bum bum erotic and suggestive dance steps with vulgar lyrics.

8. Psquare- Alingo (erotic scenes at the end of the musical videos)
