Yesteday, news went viral about a Ban placed on international Star Boy Wizkid’s song titled The Matter and Lyrical Rapper Phyno’s Man of the year. However the reason I didn’t state because I didn’t have any more info then.
Here is it:-
In the case of Wizkid’s back to the matter song
There were sensitive lyrics that called NBC attention;
For Wizkid this was the reason “20 man shall fall that day if you cross my lane … Oya back to the matter open and close”
NBC claims this line is too sexually explicit for minors to watch therefore a permanent ban has been placed on it.
While for Phyno, this was the reason “oburu na okwero iba tee ya vaseline meaning if e no gree enter apply vaseline”
Hmmmm I really don’t Know if that’s a good enough reason, because I feel if songs were to be banned for such reasons, then we won’t have any song to listen to in Nigeria…
Gbemi at the beat FM also made it clear that NBC do warn them.. So artiste out there watch your Lyrics #Gbam
