“I might sue NBC if ban on ‘This is Nigeria’ is not lifted” – Falz

Published

on

Nigerian music artiste, Falz who’d earlier reacted to the NBC ban on his song ‘ This is Nigeria ’ which they say contains vulgar words, has threatened to sue the agency a day after he shared a letter which revealed that a Radio Station in Jos was fined for playing the song.
The call for the song’s ban had first been made by MURIC, who claimed that some ladies in hijab were dancing Shaku Shaku and they believed it was against the Islamic religion, but their pleas fell on deaf ears. However announcing the song’s ban this week, the NBC said,
This is Nigeria, look how we living now. Everybody be criminal,” stating that it made the song vulgar and it was in contravention of Section 3.6.1 and 3.13.2.2 of its constitution.
Falz who disclosed that he felt it was ridiculous for the commission to ban the song, argued that it was not a vulgar song but a socially conscious piece of art which addresses the current issues in the country.
In his Interview with Saturday Beats, Falz said;
He also stated that he he does not know if there was any conspiracy to ensure that the song never enjoyed airwaves, but he was aware that the song could have hit some nerves of certain people. Falz added that his lawyers will be investigating why his song was banned.
“I do not know if the fact that some group wanted me to retract the song is linked with this new development but I know that there were a lot of messages in the song and it is hitting a lot of people in the wrong places and that is what is making them react in that manner. However, there was absolutely no basis for the NBC to ban that song. I am going to have to write to them through my lawyers to find out what is really going on. When I find out the reason behind the ban, I could ask them to lift it if need be and if they do not adhere to my request, I might have to seek legal redress,” he said.
“There is absolutely nothing vulgar about the song and I think it is ridiculous that the Nigerian Broadcast Commission singled out the least vulgar line in the song and ascribed it to be the reason they banned the song. It is a very simple and clean song.
The only thing is that I was very blunt about the way I talk about things. I do not know maybe some messages in the song hit them and that is the real reason they banned the song.
The line was, ‘This is Nigeria, be investigating why his song was banned.

Published

on

Meek Mill would have wanted at some point to counsel Tekashi 6ix9ine before he got caught up in the whole legal mess he is in right now. From Meek’s point of view, he believes Tekashi’s woes could have been different if he backed down a bit from his gangsterism getting to a certain level of fame.

Meek Mill in his words said, “I’d hit him like that shit you doing is stupid at this point. I know you might have got on from doing it and it worked out to be able to make some money. But I think you need to slow down. I think you’re beefing with too many people right now […] The world will deliver the energy that you’re putting out. You’re delivering a gangster type of energy. He locked up in the middle of some sh*t. You gave that energy, you kinda get that energy back.”

“Nobody wanna live like that. You can’t live with 10 security guards forever.”

Meek says he believes Tekashi is actually a good kid that simply got caught up in serious criminal charges.

“Them people know that he ain’t responsible for all the things them people around him was doing. I don’t think that kind of influence. I don’t think he had a say so with some of them dudes.”

“I think he’s a good kid, for real, and got caught up in the internet, and trolling and things like that.”
