Popular Nigerian rapper, Falz whose new music This Is Nigeria has not only gone viral, but has been tagged controversial by some quarters over the costume used in the music video.
In the video, some girls could be seen dancing shaku shaku in Hijab and this has been considered wrong by some Muslim faithfuls, but the rapper has insisted that it was intentional and no going back.
In an interview with an online TV outfit, the rapper spoke in-depth into the message the music video was sending and how the costume of the dancers also have a message for Nigerians.
”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? Falz said
Falz has however been given an ultimatum of 7 days by a certain Muslim group to take down the video.
