Olamide’s Science student is now “unfit for broadcast”
You love the shaku shaku dance?
Well, you’ll now have to learn to vibe to it with other songs as Olamide’s viral single, Science student which has become a popular favourite has been declared unfit for broadcast by the authorities.
Head of Public Affairs at the NBC, Hajia Maimuna Jihada said, “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”.
Recall that the lyrics of the song had recently ruffled feathers with a number of people calling for its ban as they insist it promotes drug abuse.
Hajia Jihada cited the song’s subtle promotion of illegal drugs as its main reason for the action taken adding that the NBC “has communicated all licensees for compliance or they will face sanctions”.
