The last has definitely not been heard of ‘This Is Nigeria’, a song by Nigerian artist, Falz.

Following that ban placed on the song, the rapper has gone to court to challenge the decision but the National Broadcasting Corporation (NBC).

The court documents were filed through Falz’s lawyers, Adepetun Caxton-Martins Agbor & Segun (ACAS-Law), on November, 6, 2018, three months after the NBC sent a letter to JODAJ Global Communications Limited in Jos sanctioning them for playing Falz’s song, “This Is Nigeria” and banning the song from being played on radio, along with other songs.

A lot of Nigerians, including celebrities, criticized NBC for the ban, stating it was ridiculous, but the ban was upheld.

Falz had hinted in an interview granted in August that he would write to the NBC to seek a justification for the ban and if necessary, seek legal redress in the courts. He has now followed through on his words by taking legal action against the regulatory body.

Praiz

Leading Nigerian DJ, DJ Neptune has endorsed Praiz sophomore album titled King.

Speaking on why he endorsed the 16-track album which features Olamide, Timaya, Phyno and other musicians, DJ Neptune said Praiz cant definitely can’t go wrong with the album.

“He is a great guy, amazing vocals. I know definitely he can’t go wrong with this album. This is his second album, and he is proving himself over and over again,” DJ Neptune said in an interview.

The King album was born out of self-awareness, according to Praiz.

 “I named it the King album because I went to a point of self-awareness. I am a very modest person. I didn’t really place value on what I was able to do, my abilities. I went passed that stage, and I got to a point of self-awareness. I have realised who I truly am, and I named the album the King album.”

Go and get this album. It’s an amazing body of work, it is one of the best project you will ever listen to this year, and till I release another album, trust me.
