Kenya: Nigerian TV Station - We Did Not Ban Alingo!

Nigerian Broadcast Commission (NBC) has denied banning P Square's hit music video, Alingo.

Apparently, the station was reported to have banned other music videos like 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).

But according to Nigerian newspaper The Leader, a representative of NBC said, "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."

While, 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".
