“This is Nigeria” –  Falz remakes Childish Gambino’s “This is America”

Talented Nigerian rapper Falz remakes Childish Gamino’s  “This Is America.” The raper highlights social issues affecting Nigeria including corruption, Dapchi and Chibok girls kidnap, Fulani herdsmen attacks, police brutality/SARS menace, internet fraud (Yahoo Yahoo)  and inequality in the Nigerian society. In a funny twist,  Falz also features the IGP’s “transmission” speech.  Also,  the video contains excerpts of speeches by popular Human Rights lawyer, his father, Femi Falana, which is played in suuccesions in the video. “This is Nigeria” by Falz could best be described as musical activism just as Falz attempts a remake of Gambino’s accentric dance moves.
