The National Broadcasting Commission (NBC) has banned wave making song, “Thunder Fire You” by R&B sensation, Ric Hassani.
The singer took to his Twitter page to notify his fans on the development and also to express his displeasure at the ban placed on the latest single.
He said: “So, the NBC has banned my song ‘Thunder Fire You’ and are fining radio stations that play it. Interesting.”
The ban has been generating mixed reactions among some Nigerians, some welcomed the action of the NBC, saying the choice of the lyrics was too bad.
They say the vulgar and insulting words contained in the popular song was provocative and NBC did the right thing by placing a ban on it, having fallen short of their regulatory standards.
Others however laughed off the NBC’s action as a huge joke, saying the country has more serious problem to tackle than concentrating on less important things.
They say “Thunder Fire You” was just a song and even with the ban, the song is still out there in the social media, as many people have already downloaded it.
The lyrics of the song was a direct attack on all those who have broken the hearts of people who were in love with them and it placed curses on them alongside their friends who knew that they were “players”.
