This was disclosed in a letter from the NBC dated 6th August 2018 and signed by its Zonal Director, Igomu Onoja.
According to NBC, a part of the song – “This is Nigeria; look how we living now everybody be criminal” has been tagged “vulgar” and the song is now declared “unfit for radio”.
Also banned from being aired was singer, Wande Cole’s song: ‘Iskaba’ alongside Olamide’s ‘See Mary, See Jesus’.
Muslim Right Concern(MURIC) had also requested Falz to take down “This is Nigeria” video over some “offensive” scenes which, they claimed, ridicules their religion.
This sparked controversy online as some Muslims criticized MURIC for not giving an ultimatum to Boko Haram and murderous herdsmen.
