The National Broadcasting Corporation, NBC has banned Ric Hassani’s song ‘Thunder Fire You’ from being played on radio.
The singer disclosed this on his Twitter page.
His Tweet read: “So, the NBC has banned my song ‘Thunder Fire You’ and are fining radio stations that play it. Interesting.
“I’ve always been calm in the storm.”
He, however, did not disclose reasons but it is likely the song was banned for the use of certain words.
Some lyrics from the song are “Thunder fire you for when you cheated on me”, “E no go better for you”.
Although it’s a breakup song, this may seem as offensive and a breach of NBC code.
Ric Hassani is popularly known for his hit single “Gentleman”, and his debut album “The African Gentleman”.
He just released his new second album “The Prince I became”.
A few days after dropping “Thunder Fire You” and “Everything,” Ric Hassani comes through with the full package, “The Prince I Became” album.
The new album houses 17 tracks which include collaborations with the likes Nicky Jam, Sauti Sol, Zoro, Frank Edwards, Kuami Eugene, Fumbani Changaya, and many others.
This new project comes a year after his “Love, & Christmas” EP which featured five tracks.
