The above tweets are that of popular Beat FM 99.9, Lagos Presenter Gbemi Olateru-Olagbegi(second pix above).
She just revealed the move by broadcast censors body Nigerian Broadcasting Commission(NBC).
We can't say much about Phyno "Man of the Year" as it's mostly rendered in Igbo language, (maybe our Igbo friends can help us if the lyrics is that bad), but Wizkid's "The Matter" featuring Maleek Berry indeed has some offensive lyrics.
"Back 2 d matter, open and close, touch your toes, baby Oya Yodi".
Wizkid is talking about some explicit stuff here, as in some sex positions!
But what has NBC been doing for close to a year that this song has been on air? Now, almost everybody has it on their phones.
Besides, there are countless number of songs currently rotating on our radio and TV stations today with worst lyrics.
NBC needs to do better than this!
It may also interest you to know that since both songs have videos, the ban will apply to TV stations as well.
