NBC Fines Radio Station For Playing Falz’s “This Is Nigeria”

A radio station in Jos has found itself in trouble with the National Broadcasting Commission (NBC) as it has been fined 100,000 Naira for playing Falz’ “This is Nigeria” song.

It is gathered that NBC wrote a letter to the radio station informing them that Falz’ song titled This is Nigeria is “laced with vulgar lyrics” and for playing the song, they will be sanctioned.

The lyrics they pointed out that they had a problem with is the part that goes, “This is Nigeria, look how we living now, everybody be criminal.”

Also, the commission fined the station for playing Olamide’s song titled “See Mary, See Jesus.” The letter says Mary and Jesus are regarded as sacred by the Christian faith and as such contravenes section 4.3.1e.

The station was also cautioned for playing Wande Coal’s Iskaba with the lyrics, “Girl you dey make me kolo, shaking the ass like kolo” which NBC says is vulgar.

NBC has asked the station to pay the fine of 100,000 Naira within two weeks, else they will be made to face stiffer sanctions.
