Falz has threatened to seek legal redress if the Nigerian Broadcasting Commission fails to lift the ban on his song, This is Nigeria.
“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,” the rapper and actor told Punch.
Falz maintains that the song, which seems to be the butt of controversy since its release, is socially conscious music that talks about the current situation of Nigerians in Nigeria.
“If they ban this song, then I do not understand them because that song is definitely not a vulgar song,” he said.
Continuing, Falz 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.”
