Falz, Simi, Kemi Adetiba react to NBC’s ban on ‘This Is Nigeria’



Falz has responded to NBC’s ban on his song This is Nigeria saying it contains vulgar lyrics.

The singer shared a photo of the viral letter which issues a N100,000 fine to a Jos based radio station for playing ‘This is Nigeria’ and other songs, with caption:

“’This is Nigeria. Look how we living now, everybody be criminal’ is apparently a vulgar line”.

Falz also responded to his producer Sess Beats‘ comment about how vulgar the line was by saying “plenty of vulgar on the way”


Following Falz’ post, celebrities including filmmaker Kemi Adetiba, and actress Abimbola Craig, singers Simi and Yemi Alade, and rapper Vector, among others took to the comment section to express their disappointment

    I may not totally support what NBC did but our musicians need to get more creative and churn out wholesome music and music videos. Some videos are so degrading to watch, naked women everywhere

      The videos with almost nude women are not banned but a video with an important messsge that reflects the country real crucial state is banned.
      Rapists, molesters, thieves, criminals, embezzlers liars are encouraged in their evil deeds.
      Nigeria is not a country that supports few people who want positive change which is the reason people have become desensitized to the evil occurring around them. People don’t care anymo
      re. Falz continue to stand for your truth and The truth will prevail at the end run.

      @zzzzzzzz, and what’s wrong with skimpily-dressed women or men, for that matter (so long as it is shown at appropriate times)? Our biggest problem in Nigeria is that we are too busy chasing shadows in derogation of substance. Whatever one thinks of skimpy dressing, it is NOT among the top 50 reasons of why Nigeria has remained (some would say, rapidly degenerated into) a Third World Toilet! This is a country where public office holders are brazenly stealing billions, snakes are swallowing millions, and even roadside cops are literally sticking citizens up for thousands, but it is “skimpy” dressing that some would rather focus energy on. SMDH

    We just have a bunch of illiterates at the helm of authority in Nigeria. To think, these were some of the people who got free scholarships to school abroad in those days just worries me

    Totally in support of Lolo. One wonders where depth has gone. It is sad the sort of things we allow our subconscious to consume. I wonder what we shall teach the next generation; you simply cannot give what you do not have! There is way too much ‘shallowness’ almost everywhere you turn these days, emphasis on ‘way too much.’ Nigerian artists are amazingly creative…I simply wish they would be more constructive with their creativity.

      @Proudly African, enough with the “constructive” babble. Sometimes it’s best to just have FUN!

      Meanwhile, there are more than enough Gospel and Aluta Continua musicians out there, but you may very well be forgiven for not knowing about them because folks who preach all that “constructive” drivel often do not ‘vote’ with hard CASH!
