This Is Nigeria video: “Is there any law against use of hijab in dancing?” – Falz
Rapper Folarin Falana aka Falz got in the middle of heated controversies after the release of his now viral video, This is Nigeria, which exposed the social ills of the country.
MURIC, a Muslim organization in Nigeria, few days after the release of the video, asked the rapper to take down the video which shows video vixens in hijabs dancing to “Shaku Shaku”, or face legal action.
However, Falz was a guest on Linda Ikeji TV’s show, Verified, hosted by Tope Olowoniyan recently where he spoke about his worries for Nigeria and how people missed the point of his new music video “This is Nigeria”.
When asked if the video vixens dancing Shaku Shaku in Hijab was intentional, Falz said:
It was very intentional. We continue to forget or neglect the innocence of the girl child and because of all the issues that wer are having, the kidnappings and the killings especially in the Northern part of the country, the Chibok girls and very more recently the Dapchi girls, It is very disturbing and we don’t often talk about them and I was a bit surprised to hear people say why would you put girls in Hijab to dance Shaku Shaku…common, is there anything wrong with people dancing because they are wearing Hijabs? Is their any law against that?
Have you watched the music video? What’s your thought on it?
