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'.
When Nigerian rapper Olamide released his new song "wo!" his prayers most have been for the song to announce his name to ears that have not heard him; while ensuring his name stay on his existing fans lips.
The federal ministry of health, via its twitter account, notified the public that the rapper had violated the 2015 tobacco act and that the video had "dangerous public health content".
"This is our position: the video contravenes the Act".

Reacting to the alleged ban, Olamide had said that he never meant to cause harm to music fans with the song.
The Ministry said on its twitter handle on Friday that the video promotes a unsafe habit that encourages second-hand smoking.
In 2016, just a few months after the ban of one of his songs, "Shakiti Bobo", NBC also banned "Don't Stop", a track from Olamide's fifth studio album, Eyan Mayweather, for its vulgar lyrics. "Innocently or otherwise Tobacco Promotion Advertising Sponsorship is banned in all forms", NBC said.
It would be recalled that Falz had earlier called out music acts who entertain lavish lifestyles and also fraud.
