Nigerian musician, Folarin Falana, popularly known as Falz, has reacted to the ban placed on his song, ‘This is Nigeria’, by the National Broadcasting Commission, NBC.
We had reported that the NBC in a letter on Thursday, declared as “unfit for radio” a part of the song – “This is Nigeria; look how we living now everybody be criminal”.
We also recalls that the Muslim Rights Concern (MURIC) had requested Falz to take down “This is Nigeria” video over some “offensive” scenes which, they claimed, ridiculed their religion.
This sparked controversy online as some Nigerians criticised MURIC for not giving an ultimatum to Boko Haram and murderous herdsmen.
However, reacting, Falz alongside a picture of the letter on Instagram wrote, ‘’This is Nigeria. Look how we living now, everybody is criminal is apparently a vulgar line.’’
