Following the news that the Nigerian Broadcast Commission (NBC) placed a NTBB ban on some new music videos recently, it was recently confirmed that the report is false.

According to the report, the banned videos include P Square (Alingo), Wande Coal (Go Low), Timaya (Bum Bum) and Flavour (Shake) for being 'suggestive and provocative'. Others include D'Prince (Take Banana), Goldie (Ski Bobo), Chuddy K (Brazilian Hair) and Tillaman (Koma Roll).

NBC the body responsible for the scrutiny of what is churned out to the public, NBC has denied banning any video.

According to Mrs. Dorothy of NBC, "NBC doesn't ban videos; we can only instruct them to remove it from being aired. We didn't ban any musical video as we speak."

Also responding, Psquare's publicist Bayo Adetu said, 'We also just saw the story online this morning and we do not think that NBC's ban is justifiable'.

He also added that the ban would not make any difference since the video has already gone worldwide and is loved by fans.
