Ric Hassani, Nigerian singer, says the National Broadcasting Commission (NBC) has banned ‘Thunder Fire You’, a track off his newly-released album.


Hassani, who broke the news in a post on his Twitter page on Friday, said the commission is also sanctioning radio stations that are airing the song.

He, however, did not provide details on the circumstances that led to the ban.

“So, the NBC has banned my song ‘Thunder Fire You’ and are fining radio stations that play it. Interesting,” he wrote.



Efforts by TheCable Lifestyle to reach the commission on Saturday did not materialise — as of the time of this report.

‘Thunder Fire You’ sees the singer cursing his estranged woman who ditched him despite sacrificing a lot for her.

“The love I gave you, was too perfect for you. And you know I tried to make your dreams come true. And you knew this you still went and threw this, threw this away (away). It’s okay,” the song’s lyrics read.

“Thunder fire you. For all the lies you told me. Thunder fire you. For when you cheated on me. Thunder fire you. You never did deserve nome. E go better for you. So thunder fire you.”


Since he released his debut album in 2016, the ‘Gentleman’ crooner has continued to pull the strings in the country’s music industry.

He has also snagged a plethora of awards including ‘Best Collaboration’ at the 2018 edition of the Galaxy Music Awards.
