“The Commission has observed with great concern the continuous airing of vulgar and indecent music lyrics inspite of warnings both verbal and written to the station,” NBC said.

According to the commission,  Falz’s “This is Nigeria”contravened the broadcasting code by referring to Nigerians as “criminals.”
