Nigerian performing artist, rapper and musician Folarin Falana otherwise known as Falz who has experienced harsh criticism from numerous Muslim gatherings and people for utilizing women wearing Hijab for his viral video ‘This is Nigeria’ has said he has no statement of regret to make to anyone for depicting his stresses over Nigeria in his new music video.
The Muslim Rights Concern (MURIC) had yesterday requested that the artist pull back his ‘This is Nigeria’ video and apologize to Nigerians, or face lawful activity, however talking as a visitor on a TV demonstrate facilitated by Tope Olowoniyan, Falz said he sang in regards to his stresses for Nigeria and think about how individuals overlooked the main issue of his music video over the utilization of video ladies wearing Hijab.
When asked if the video vixens dancing Shaku Shaku in Hijab was intentional, he said: “It was 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.
They are all 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?”
Also, Femi Soro, a member of Falz’s management team reating to the MURIC’s threat, said: “We have nothing to say.
We are not withdrawing the video neither are we commenting on their claims. If they have any grievance they can head to court and we will meet them there.”
