  2. This is a right step in the right direction, only that one would have expected a number of Olamide’s song to be in that list. There was this song that he ended with ‘baba e, baba e’ etc, I will chop you like cashew etc.I wonder who censors all these records before the are released!

  3. our musicians should also do something about their write-up, maybe they should adjust the dirty words they normally use becos of the little children just growing up

  4. Why will they be banning music when the owner must have made money from it? They should go and sit down and stop critising other people’s music by banning it. They ban musics when it is up to 5 months of its releasal. Foolish agency

  5. dey didnt know what dey are doing.. Hw can dey banned music when d owner have made their cash…. NBC should go and site down…dey are stupid? Nonsense?no work 4 d youth 2 do d one dey try 2 attach demself doing dey want 2 make dem jobless….NBC u people have gone mad and stupid?
