A Nigerian Muslim lady has come out to blast Falz for using ladies on Hijab as dancers in his trending, This is Nigeria, music video.
Over the weekend, Nigerian rapper, Falz The Bahd guy released a new video, “This is Nigeria” – which is a cover of foreign rapper, Childish Gambino’s “This is America”. Since its release, the song has been trending and drawing all sorts of reactions from the public.
Obviously the reactions have been both positive and negative.
His video has been buzzing all over social media because of its contents and the messages he passed across through it.
While some people are showering him encomiums, as even popular american musician, Diddy, showed his love for he cover, a particular Nigerian Muslim lady is not quite happy that he used dancers wearing Hijab in the video.
The lady says his actions has trampled on her dignity and pride. In her own words, she said;
I really am disappointed. Why of all things to use, he decided to degrade the hijab. It shows his level of social etiquette. No matter the message passed across, he has trampled on our dignity and pride… He went overboard thus time around
Some don’t quite agree with her though, as a particular user hit back at her for feeling entitled to speak about the Hijab.
