Check Out The 9 hidden messages in Falz’s This Is Nigeria video

Popular Nigerian musician Folarin Falana recently released a video titled This Is Nigeria. That video has elicited a lot of reactions from everyone who has seen it.

Originally performed by American rapper and actor Childish Gambino whose version is titled This Is America, Falz tackles corruption in government and churches, SARS brutality, yahoo boys and herdsmen killings in the video.

However, not everyone is happy with Falz’ video. The Muslim Rights Concern (MURIC) group in a statement made available to GLtrends asked Falz to withdraw the video within seven days or face legal action.

1. The ewooo chant and general chaos

This chant is regularly used by majority of Nigerians irrespective of tribe. The general chaos especially okada and keke moving in the background is also reminiscent of day to day life in Nigeria.

2. Girls dancing shaku shaku with hijabs on

This is the part that has raised eyebrows the most. The girls dancing signify the Chibok girls who were kidnapped in 2014 and the more recent Dapchi girls kidnapped in February 2018. Their dancing could signify that people are now used to things like this happening. It has become almost normal.
