Singer, Falz Reacts After NBC Fined A Radio Station For Playing His Song “This is Nigeria”



It was reported that the National Broadcasting Commission, NBC, fined a radio station in Jos 100, 000 Naira for playing Falz' This is Nigeria song.

NBC said the song is "laced with vulgar lyrics" and as such shouldn't be played on the radio.

Well, Falz finds the entire situation hilarious and reacted on Instagram, writing: " 'This is Nigeria. Look how we living now, everybody be criminal' is apparently a vulgar line ??"



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. See full letter below:
