Olamide Apologizes For His Banned Video
Olamide officially reacts to the Nigerian Government’s ban on his current hit music, “Wo”.
The YBNL boss reacted via a tweet saying he had no intention of promoting tobacco to get people killed with his music. (See included tweet in pix). –
The ban came after the Federal Ministry of Health led by its Minister, Isaac Adewole said Olamide’s new street anthem ‘WO’ is in violation of the Nigerian Tobacco Control Act of 2015. The song’s dance competition dubbed “Wo Challenge” only recently produced a set of champions, where Olamide presented a prize money of 1 Million Naira each to the winners.
It can be recalled that the NBC banned list of July 2015 also included videos of the songs, ”Indomie” and “Falila Ketan” by Olamide which were banned for being obscene and classified as NTBB (Not To Be Broadcast), while his other track, “Bobo” scaled through and got an SFB (Suitable for Broadcast) rating.
Other songs in the August 2017 banned list include “If” and “Fall” by Davido, “Wavy Level” another track from Olamide and “Living Things” by 9ice. Many believe 9ice deserves the ban for promoting financial crimes. Mainstream rapper, Falz was one of those who criticized the song long before the ban came.
