MURIC Applauds NBC’s Ban On Falz’s “This Is Nigeria”

The controversy surrounding the video “This is Nigeria” released by Falz has continued to make the rounds since the NBC placed a ban on the song.

Meanwhile, an Islamic group, MURIC have applauded the NBC for placing a ban on the song saying the video portrayed Fulanis and Muslims as killers.

Falz had also reacted to the ban with sarcasm which many did not expect.

Recall that MURIC had called on Falz to withdraw visuals of the song since its release but Falz and his management refused to oblige saying they have done no wrong.

Read statement from MURIC below;

The video portrayed Fulanis and Muslims as killers. It also showed women in hijab engaging in the notorious ‘Shaku Shaku’ dance. Although reactions to similar provocative works of art had been violent in the past, MURIC as an elite Islamic group decided to adopt dialogue. We asked Falz to withdraw the video or we would sue him. Instead of showing remorse he dared us. We knew he could delay the court case for years because he is a lawyer and he would use every trick in the books to frustrate us. That was why he was boasting.

“Therefore, instead of going to court, we decided to ambush him by sending a petition to the video board. This week, the NBC banned the video and others like it. He should be the one to go to court now if he likes. Let him go and show how brilliant he is in court. He and his fans laughed at us when we complained about his provocative and vulgar video. But there is no doubt that he who laughs last laughs best”.
