Nigerian rapper, Folarin Falana prominently called Falz, who has been in the news over debates encompassing his video ‘This is Nigeria’, has at long last responded to the threats by the Muslim Right Concern (MURIC).
Information had before detailed that MURIC, in an announcement marked by its executive Manager, Ishaq Akintola on Tuesday, issued Falz a seven-day final proposal to bring down ‘This is Nigeria’ video.
It had denounced the song and the video for including a character that dressed like a Fulani man executing a man and furthermore to portray ladies in hijab as choreographers moving the ‘shaku-shaku’ Dance Style
This started discussions online as even a few Muslims scrutinized MURIC for not offering final proposal to Boko Haram and herders.
Nonetheless, Falz said MURIC’s claim of a despise video was unmerited as the young ladies in hijab moving ‘Shaku’ symbolizes excitement being a diversion from everything that is occurring in the general public.
As indicated by him, he likewise tended to ministers and defilement in the video, taking note of that MURIC had no body of evidence against him.
He enlightened Punch “I talked concerning different issues like Insecurity, corruption, and I even discussed pastors. No Christian has turned out to state that it is a detest video; so what is MURIC discussing? I don’t generally comprehend them.
“I think it is clear what that Shaku scene spoke to in the video. The message is clear on the grounds that the young ladies there symbolize the steady issues and inconveniences that face the guiltless young lady kid in Nigeria, particularly in the northern part of Nigeria.
“They have been casualties of kidnappings and we have the instance of the Chibok young ladies and as of late the Dapchi young ladies. Till date, the majority of the Chibok young ladies have not been found while a Dapchi young lady is as yet held hostage. That is the thing that those young ladies symbolize.
“I feel everybody got the message and it is crazy that a group of individuals like MURIC asserted that it is a detest video. I don’t surmise that bodes well in any capacity on the grounds that in the video, I talked about different issues like Insecurity, corruption, and I even discussed pastors. No Christian has turned out to state that it is an abhor video; so what is MURIC discussing? I don’t generally comprehend them.
“I was dancing also in the video and the dance was symbolic. The move was emblematic of amusement being a diversion from everything that is going on in our general public. Shaku is the most prominent dance step in Nigeria and it is as of now in vogue; it is really certain that with all that is going on, everybody is embedded and diverted with the dance culture. I was simply endeavoring to state that everybody is excessively diverted with entertainment that they appear to overlook every one of the things that are occurring directly before our countenances.”
Additionally talking on MURIC’s threat to prosecute him after the seven-day final proposal, Falz said he was prepared for any case.
“I feel it is exceptionally interesting on the grounds that there is no reason for activity, frankly. There is no law that is against young women moving in hijab. There is positively no reason for a lawful activity, I mean, individuals move in hijabs all the time in films and gatherings. Truth be told, designers have made sportswear that have hijabs, so why are they not saying that is a lack of respect to the religion? I think it is an unmerited charge.
“I have the most extreme regard for Islam and additionally every other religion however what I think our kin need to concentrate more on is the way to make tracks in an opposite direction from being religious fan. It is one of our most concerning issues and it was an issue I tended to in a same song and visual.
“In the event that there is extremely going to be a court case, obviously, I am preparedhowever there is none; there is no case here and I don’t think it is anything that would hold water in any court. If they somehow happened to found procedures, I don’t think it is something that would see the light of the day in light of the fact that there is no reason for activity.
“I extremely prepared and I realize that social cognizant melodies like this don’t come without repercussions and responses. They don’t come without backfire.
