Following the public outcry over Olamide’s controversial song ‘Science student’, Moses Siloko Siasia has called for the ban of the song.
The Chairman of the Nigerian Young Professionals Forum, has criticized Olamide, adding that the song promotes drug abuse, especially among young Nigerians.
The former Bayelsa State Governorship Candidate has called on the controlling bodies to ban the song and ensure that Olamide is discouraged from releasing similar song in the future.
“This is aside from the fact that this artiste eulogized users of hard drugs. This is a dangerous trend that must be stopped now before it destroys the sanity of our society. It is disheartening that Nigeria is already battling with the effect of hard drug in the society and its accompanying vices.
“More than 40% of Nigerian youth are said to be involved in one form of drug abuse or the other. Recently, the Nigerian senate noted that over three million bottles of codeine syrup are consumed daily in Kano and Jigawa States, sadly among female Nigerian youths, including married women”.
“The law enforcement agencies, especially the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency, NDLEA should interrogate Olamide and if he is suspected to be a promoter of hard drug, he should face the music. However, I want to believe Olamide needs help and the NDLEA should be able to educate him on the harmful effect of drug abuse to our society and his fans” his statement read.
