In a response to the alleged NBC ban on D’banj’s latest song ‘Oliver’, Mo’Hits C.E.O and beatmaker Don Jazzy has played down the censor saying that ‘they only banned it because they have the power to do so’.

News of the ban first came from popular rapper Ruggedman who spread the news via Twitter: ‘NBC strikes again. 1st @IAM2SHOTZ Supermandead is banned. Now its @iamdbanj Oliver Twist. Na wah o cc @DONJAZZY’, @Ruggedybaba tweeted. The rapper further disclosed that he got the information on the ban from radio stationCool FM Abuja.

Speaking with a source in Cool FM, who would rather remain anonymous, a clear instruction has been given that the ‘Oliver’ song is not to be played. This claim was seconded by a Rhythm FM personnel who confirmed that his station has received a circular from the Nigerian Broadcasting Commission (NBC) to the effect although other radio DJs and OAPs claim they are yet to.

Yes boss I heard over Twitter about that. Oh well they have banned it because they have the power to do so. Let’s see how they stop people from hearing it elsewhere. We’re not the first people they’ll ban and we’ll not be the last. When u flog a child at every chance you get, after a while the child would adjust and get used to the beatings’, label boss Don Jazzy responded in an e-mail enquiry sent to him byNigerian Entertainment Today.

He continued, ‘The truth is that the person that banned this song will hear this song till he is sick of it. He will hear it at almost every party he goes to. He will hear it from the cars that will drive pass him. He will hum the melody even in his sleep. He’ll probably record his own version of the Oliver video sef lol. He is doing his job so let’s allow him exercise his power. It’s allowed. May God bless him and his hustle. No long thing’.

The hit producer who performed along with the Mo’Hits crew at the recently held Koko Koncert in London, also had a word for his fans. ‘Shout out to all Mo’Hits Records fans out there. May God continue to bless you all for the love and support o. Una too much. Please follow me on twitter my name na @donjazzy. See you guys soon. IDJA’.

Recently, NBC placed a ban on rapper 2Shotz song ‘Superman Dead‘ for indecent use of language.
