  1. That’s quite a great move . There is no such law against that kind of music . He merely expressed the truth about the nation. I see no reason why NBC should banned it

  2. His song is speaking the truth. Why would some Nigerians ban that song? Come to think of it, those people that are against his song are enemies of Nigeria

  3. Are they trying to hide the truth or what’s the motive behind the ban…they dont know whom they are dealing with…they are in hot soup.

  4. That very music need to encorage those thief to rearrange nigeria to a better shap instead of banning the music. I pray you win the case bro faz

  5. That is Nigeria for you they had to ban that song simply because falz was singing about Wat is happening in this country, this our so-called leaders really need to change.

  6. Nigeria with their stupidity. People are deing every day they can not do anything about it . Na person music they won die put. This song is just like a message I don’t see any bad in it. If it touch Nigeria maybe they should change for good
