Although the commission did not, according to the reports, give specific reasons for banning the songs, many felt the decision might have been influenced by a recent reaction from the Federal Ministry of Health to the music video of Olamide's new song.

This is the second time in two years that the pair of Olamide and Davido would have their songs banned on air by the NBC.

Their announcement is coming four days after the Federal Ministry of Health in a post on Twitter informed that the video for Olamide's latest track "Wo" is in violation of the Tobacco Control Act 2015.

The FAA and National Transportation Safety Board are investigating the crash and witnesses are being interviewed by officials. The small fire that resulted from the crash is no longer a threat to the area and no other property was damaged.

"This is our position: the video contravenes the Act".

Meanwhile, if Olamide is charged and convicted he will be charged fifty thousand or spend six months behind bars because, Section 9 of the Nigeria Tobacco Control Act 2015, once convicted, offenders are liable to a fine of at least N50, 000 and/or six months' imprisonment.

"The video promoting a unsafe habit encourages second-hand smoking. Innocently or otherwise, Tobacco Promotion Advertising Sponsorship is banned in all forms".
