The National Broadcasting Commission (NBC) of Nigeria has contrary to earlier publications debunked claims that it has banned five songs by three Nigerian artistes.
The publications listed Olamide’s “Wo” and “Wavy Level”, Davido’s “Fall” and “If (Remix)”, and 9ice’s “Living Things” as affected by the ban because they were considered offensive.
But describing the report as as fake, the NBC has revealed that it surprise the public could fall for such a prank.
According to the Director of Media in NBC, Mr. Antia Ekanem, the report is a fabrication aimed at discrediting the NBC and urged the public to treat the report with contempt.
‘‘If you look at the story very well, you will see NBC described as Nigerian Broadcasting Corporation, whereas we are National Broadcasting Commission.
“We saw it and ignored it because it did not originate from us. I even contacted the Director General of NBC and he said I should try and make our colleagues understand that the story did not originate from us.”
