Online platforms widely reported that the NBC had banned "Wo" and Wavi Level" by Olamide; Davido's remix of "If" and 9ice's "Living Things'.

The NBC stated on Tuesday that it was banning the five songs from being aired further across the Nigerian airwaves.

Recall that the Ministry of Health had earlier claimed that the video to Olamide's "Wo" violates the Tobacco Control Act 2015.

Olamide, who is signed to his own record label, YBNL, recently returned to his home bas, Bariga, to shoot the video of his latest single.NBC statement read: "This is our position: video contravenes the act".

It warned that "Wo" video had "dangerous public health content".

"No intentions of promoting tobacco to get people killed, I love my people, I love my country", Olamide tweeted.

The ministry tweeted at the weekend that the music video is in violation of Tobacco Control Act 2015.

Others songs banned were Tony Montana by Naeto C featuring D'banj, Gbese by Lil Kesh, Ibadi by May D, Tesojue by Reminisce, Yayo by Phyno, Lomo by Jhybo and Pre's song titled, The Girl.

This is not the first time that an Olamide song will be banned by the regulatory agency.
