Nigerian Rapper Falz is to face legal action according to the Muslim Rights Concern (MURIC) if he does not pull down his ‘This Is Nigeria’ Video within 7 days.
The major controversy trailing the music video is the choice he of using video vixens dressed in Hijab.
Falz has now made it known that the move was intentional. In a recent interview with Linda Ikeji TV, Falz revealed this.
When asked if the video vixens dancing Shaku Shaku in Hijab was intentional, 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 WER 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 THEIR ANY LAW AGAINST THAT?
