Olamide’s “Science Student” song banned by NBC – See their reason

Olamide‘s “Science Student” song has brought so much controversy in the aspect of drug abuse that NBC had to get involved in the matter, slamming a Not-To-Be-Broadcast (NTTB) warning on the YBNL frontman’s hit single! 🙁

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

NBC’s Head of Public Affairs Hajia Maimuna Jihada told the publication that the song was not out-rightly banned but prohibited from being played on local stations for public consumption.

“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,'” Hajia stated, further adding 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 sanctions,” she concluded.

Do you think his song should be banned?

  1. I dont think they had to go as far as banning the song. It was just for fun, he didnt intentionally promote drugs in Nigeria
