Falz plans to take Legal action with NBC for banning his song 'This is Nigeria'


Few days ago, the Nigerian Broadcasting Commission placed a fine of N100,000 on a radio station  for playing the  Falz song 'This is Nigeria' and the singer spoke with Saturday beats on the development. He said;
“There is absolutely nothing vulgar about the song and I think it is ridiculous that the Nigerian Broadcast Commission singled out the least vulgar line in the song and ascribed it to be the reason they banned the song. It is a very simple and clean song. The only thing is that I was very blunt about the way I talk about things. I do not know maybe some messages in the song hit them and that is the real reason they banned the song. The line was, ‘This is Nigeria, look how we living now. Everybody be criminal.’ If they ban this song, then I do not understand them because that song is definitely not a vulgar song.”


“I do not know if the fact that some group wanted me to retract the song is linked with this new development but I know that there were a lot of messages in the song and it is hitting a lot of people in the wrong places and that is what is making them react in that manner. However, there was absolutely no basis for the NBC to ban that song. I am going to have to write to them through my lawyers to find out what is really going on. When I find out the reason behind the ban, I could ask them to lift it if need be and if they do not adhere to my request, I might have to seek legal redress,” he said.

I agree with him. There is nothing wrong with the song but of-course our politicians will have a problem with it.What is vulgar about this line if not the truth? - ‘This is Nigeria, look how we living now. Everybody be criminal.’? First it was the dancing shaky shaku in hijab ,now this... This is why the country will not grow...
