NBC bans broadcast of Olamide’s song, ‘Science Student’



The National Broadcasting Commission (NBC) has issued a ‘Not To Be Broadcast’ (NTBB) warning against rapper Olamide’s hit song ‘Science Student.’

NBC proscribed the song from being broadcast on all radio and television stations.

The Head of Public Affairs, NBC, Hajia Maimuna Jimada confirmed NBC’s stand on the trending song, stating that the regulatory body did not ban the song but considered it unfit for broadcast.

She told Tribune “NBC does not ban music. Our mandate is on what goes on Radio and TV. Olamide’s Science Student has been declared ‘Unfit for broadcast.’

“The profligate mention and the subtle promotion of illegal drugs declared the song unlawful.

“We have communicated all our licensees for compliance or they will face sanctions.”
