The rapper said that he thought the song will be very interesting.

Falz also said he was shocked and depressed to hear people condemning the video which he says was to address societal problems facing Nigeria especially kidnappings and killings in the Nothern part of the country.

Recall that WuzupNaija had reported that a Muslim Rights Concern group had given a seven-day ultimatum to Falz, to withdraw his ‘This is Nigeria’ video and apologise to Nigerians, or face legal action.

Falz said,

“It was very intentional. We continue to forget or neglect the innocence of the girl child and because of all the issues that we 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 there any law against that?”
