Nigerian rapper Falz has since received a lot of credits and accolade after he dropped his own version of Childish Gambino’s track “This is America” which he titled “This is Nigeria”.
The song has seen been heavily received in good hearts by Nigerians who applauds his ability to address the societal issues plaguing the country at large.
Reacting to the video which has since gone viral, Diddy, owner of Revolt TV and Bad Boy Records, posted a short clip on his Instagram page, which he promises to play the song on his station.
Mirroring the concept used by the American musician/filmmaker born Donald Glover, Falz, who’s also a multi-faceted entertainer, used his song to touch almost all the problems we are facing now.
While acknowledging the Nigerian rapper/comic-actor, he wrote: “#Nigeria LETS GO!”. ‘This is Nigeria’ was produced by Wande Thomas and the video was directed by Prodigeezy.
On the song, Falz talks about the menace of Fulani herdsmen, codeine epidemic among Nigerian youth, the much-panned special anti-robbery squad (SARS), internet fraud also known as ‘yahoo yahoo’, the Chibok and Dapchi schoolgirls abduction.
