Folarin ‘Falz’ Falana takes Nigeria apart in a new rap video, ‘”This is Nigeria”. It is a parody of Childish Gambino’s “This is America”. He rapped on many issues including special anti-robbery squad (SARS), Yahoo boys, IGP transmission speech, and herdsmen.
In the piece, he rapped: “This is Nigeria, look how I’m living now, look how I’m living now. Everybody be criminal/ Person wey no get work dey check if my watch is original.”
He just demonstrated why artists are great messengers. He might have achieved more than his father, Femi Falana, a social activist and legal legend, who also provided voice-over in the music, this year, in moving our consciousness on many topics.
Now, Falz should do another video and offer some clear plans on what could be done. That way the nation would have another set of conversations especially as 2019 election arrives.
