Following its recent controversy, Olamide’s new single ‘Wo’ has been banned by the National Broadcasting Corporation.
The record is one of 5 songs which has been tagged by the NBC as “Not to be Broadcasted.” The corporation released the list, saying it has banned the 5 songs from being aired on all local radio and TV stations.
The songs banned are: Olamide‘s ‘Wo’ and ‘Wavy Level’, Davido‘s ‘Fall’ and ‘If(Remix)’, and 9ice‘s ‘Living Things.’
No official reason has been given as to why the songs were blacklisted.
The Federal Ministry of Health had in a tweet on Friday said that the video to Olamide’s “Wo” is in violation of the Tobacco Control Act 2015. Tweeting the information via its official Twitter page, the Ministry of Health claimed that the video which features ghetto scenes in which youths are seen smoking, shows support of second-hand smoking.
