- Earlier on, Falz's This is Nigeria song was banned by the Nigerian Broadcasting Commission
- The singer has taken to his social media page to react to the news
- Joining him are several other artistes who feel it is totally unreasonable
Earlier on, NAIJ.com reported the news of how the Nigerian Broadcasting Commission (NBC) banned the popular song by Falz, This is Nigeria. According to the commission, the song is vulgar and therefore unfit for airplay.
Amidst social media criticisms towards the NBC on their action, Falz has also reacted to the news and from the look of things, he appears unfazed and finds their action amusing.
He recently shared a photo of the letter which was written by the NBC, banning his song alongside Wande Coal's Iskaba and Olamide's See Mary See Jesus. Falz captioned the post, "This is Nigeria. Look how we living now, everybody be criminal” is apparently a vulgar line ��"
Celebrities including filmmaker Kemi Adetiba, and actress Abimbola Craig, singers Simi and Yemi Alade, and rapper Vector, among others took to the comment section to express their disappointment at the development.
Originally performed by American rapper and actor Childish Gambino, Falz's version of the song which went viral as it highlighted several problems facing the nation, caused major reactions across the country when it was released.
This would not be the first time the song is getting attacked by the authorities.
Shortly after its release, Muslim Rights Concern (MURIC) group demanded that Falz withdraw the video or face legal action. According to the statement released, the group had an issue with the use of ladies wearing hijab while also dancing shaku shaku in the video.
