Olamide’s song receives a lot of criticism for promoting drugs within the society. Majority of people were in support of the song and it later received a massive support from Olamide with a hashtag #ScienceStudent.
However, a filmmaker and communication expert Don Pedro, has called for a ban on the song which has funny skits and the ‘Shaku-Shaku’ dance steps on Instagram.
Don Pedro, who alleged that the song promotes drug usage appeals to the National Broadcasting Commission (NBC) for the ban.
Pedro said: “This song must not be allowed to hit the airwaves or any kind of wave”.
Don Pedro further said that Olamide is encouraging the use of drugs. He said: “He is encouraging the children to do Monkey trail, that is, he is eulogizing all forms of illicit drugs and making it trendy”
Since then Olamide’s fans have come to his defence both on Instagram and Twitter saying that the song teaches the society the effects of drug abuse.
Olamide, who is mostly described as the voice of the ghetto, has bagged many awards as the “Listener’s choice” award at the just concluded Soundcity MVP awards held in Lagos.
The ‘Shaku-Shaku’ crooner, who has seven albums to his name, came into limelight in 2011 with his debut album ‘Rapsodi’ before starting his own label called YBNL in 2012.
