The National Broadcasting Commission (NBC) has fined a radio station in Jos N100,000 (One Hundred Thousand Naira) for playing Wande Coal’s ‘Iskaba’, Falz’s ‘This is Nigeria’ and DJ Kaywise and Olamide’s ‘See Mary, See Jesus’.
In a letter dated August 6th, 2018 and addressed to the Chief Executive Officer, JODAJ Global Communications Limited, Jos, owners of Jay FM 101.9. Excerpts of the letter read:
‘On 30th July, 2018 at about 9.56am, your station aired a song by Falz titled ”This is Nigeria” laced with vulgar lyrics, ”this is Nigeria, look how we living now, everybody be criminal.”
Also on August 1st 2018, at about 3.50pm, you aired a song by Wande Coal titled, ”Iskaba” with vulgar lyrics, ”Girl you de make me kolo, shaking the ass like kolo” in contravention of Section 3.6.1 and 22.214.171.124c.” the letter read.
Guess the term ‘vulgar’ has a new meaning in Jos.
