NBC bans radio stations from playing Wizkid’s The Matter & Phyno’s Man of the Year

| On 21, Sep 2013

According to Beatfm OAP Gbemi Olateru Olagbegi, The National Broadcasting Commission (NBC) has instructed them not to play two songs – Wizkid ft Maleek Berry – The Matter and Phyno – ‘Man of the Year. W

That brings us to the nitty gritty of music which so many Nigerian artists lack. You need have a clean version for airplay and another version for club play and others.

We lately have so many songs with lyrics which are not okay for airplay and you wonder what in the world the Radio stations are doing. Imagine listening to  Nigerian song with violent lyrics, sex lyrics and all sorts of “agbero” slangs as early as 6am on a radio station while driving to work?

What next really for Nigerian Music? Is NBC doing enough? Should NBC not ban those songs from  from the airwaves? What exactly is NBC looking at in songs or videos? Are cable TVs excluded or not from music videos that are either violent or with seductive scenes etc?

Well, all we can say is the music industry is growing and most of the artists need know how its done in a proper manner to avoid embarrassment after toiling all nights in the studio.
