Few hours after the Ban on various songs by the NBC,
Nollywood actress, Foluke Daramola Salako has thrown her weight behind
the federal government, saying that the children are too vulnerable to
be exposed to what Music artist are putting out to them.
The ban which came on the heels of Olamide’s new single, Wo which was
condemned by the Ministry of health for allegedly promote public
Foluke Daramola Salako took to her Instagram page where she shared her thoughts on the ban, she said and we quote;
“As much as I love these fantastic talented artists and I don’t have
anything against them but 1st we are Africans though our now has been
taken care of, but what’s going to happen to our kids and the ones yet
unborn, our future? !
I don’t believe technological advancement should make us drop what we
stand for. whatever we do today we should always consider our tomorrow
when doing them. ..Can ur children relate with what u do now ,what
values are those songs impacting to our society?
When I was of a marriage able age and I bring a man home to my mum she
would ask me who he is,what he does for a living (even when it’s obvious
he has money)what family he comes from and so on
But now what’s the criterion of looking for a spouse either male or
female? I can mention but a few , money ,money and loads of
We are fast losing our value system, We complain about our leaders and
how corrupt they are but we also forget in a hurry that our leaders are a
representation of what a society is and it starts with the mind, Hence
my bible tells me 1ce the foundation is shaky what can the righteous do?
To get TRUE change it starts with the mind, our children are too fickle
minded and too vulnerable to be exposed to what we are inputting into
Like I said I don’t have any form of animosity toward this wonder guys I
love their music from the selfish point of view but am too deep and
concerned about my future (my kids) than now
And this is my take.
Songs banned by the NBC include Olamide’s Wo and Wavy level, Davido’s IF remix and Fall, and 9ice’s Living thing.
