POPCAAN track that ‘endorses violence’ banned from the airwaves

The Jamaican Broadcasting Commission has confirmed that POPCAAN's “Nuh Box Pon Jaw (All Now)” is unfit for broadcast on radio and television because it “endorses violence”.

The commission's PR officer Nicole Morrison told the Weekend Star: "The Commission, in November 2011, determined that the song was transmitted in breach of the Children's Code for Programming as the song in totality endorses violence as a means of resolving conflict and under the Code attracts a V4 (D) rating. Material attracting a V4 (D) rating should not be transmitted on broadcast radio or television at any time."

The song was released at the end of October 2011 and was produced by UIM Records on the Nymphomaniac riddim.

Here it is:

UIM's Andrew 'Anju Blaxx' Myrie is now planning to contact the Broadcasting Commission to officially enquire about the matter.

He told the Star: “It's a song about defending yourself and not taking things from people but not promoting violence against anyone. But the Broadcasting Commission knows what's right for people to hear, so we will have to be more mindful of that and more creative." 

On upcoming music the producer revealed plans to release a new single from POPCAAN called “Naughty Girl” and two new riddims: Sunny Days with BUGLE, NICKY B, BLAK DIAMOND and VYBZ KARTEL; and Coolie Gyal with POPCAAN, KHAGO and BLAK DIAMOND.

The rising Jamaican artist also recently released an official video for the track “Only Man She Wants”.
