9ice dares NBC , say he'll churn out more "unworthy songs" (Video)

“Gongo Aso” crooner and Alapomeji CEO 9ice is daring the National Broadcasting Commission (NBC) after he declared in an interview with HipTV that he is ready to wax more “unworthy songs”.

9ice who was responding to questions on the purported ban of his song, ‘Living Things’ by the NBC said he has even more songs for them to ban while also noting that the song in question has become more popular after its reported ban.

In the interview, 9ice said; “After the ban there was another letter that the song was not banned. But I am thanking the NBC for the ban, because after the ban the song go blow so NBC I am releasing more songs soon that you guys will have to ban.”

Last week, news made the rounds that five songs from three different artistes deemed unworthy by the NBC have been banned from being aired on national radio and TV stations.

The five songs reportedly tagged “Not to be Broadcasted” by NBC include tracks like Wavy Level and Wo by Olamide, Fall and IF (remix) by Davido, and Living Things by Alapomeji CEO, 9ice.

However, the ban was denied by Idachaba Armstrong, the director of broadcast monitoring of the NBC.

He noted that by virtue of the broadcasting law, radio and television stations are to ensure that as gate keepers, songs containing vulgar or suggestive lyrics and visuals are not aired at all.

Broadcast stations according to Armstrong are aware that any lyrics or song containing offensive content cannot be put on the air, warning that any station found wanting will be penalised.

“We will impose the necessary sanctions on the stations. If the stations contravene any of the broadcast code, they will be fined,” he said.

Armstrong also added that; “Once NBC picks it up, we call the stations to order and impose the necessary fine. First, we caution you, and then impose a fine afterwards, which can be between N50-N100k. But if they are recalcitrant, it can rise to N500k”, he stated.
