Muslim Rights Concern threaten Falz with court case over #ThisIsNigeria video

The Muslim Rights Concern (MURIC) have threatened to sue Falz due to the content of his ‘This is Nigeria’ video. The religious organization has asked the rapper to apologise and withdraw his video; or face legal action.
Falz' cover of Childish Gambino, ‘This Is America’ video focuses on issues relating to the Nigerian society including the abduction of Chibok girls by Boko Haram terrorists and the incessant killings perpetrated by Fulani herdsmen. 

MURIC are angered by the content of Falz’s ‘This Is Nigeria’ video especially ‘the scenes in the video where girls dressed in hijab were seen doing the “shaku shaku” dance’.


The statement read "MURIC rejects Falz’ explanation that the girls in hijab in his ‘Shaku Shaku’ dance symbolize the Chibok girls because nothing in the video indicates that the girls represent the Chibok girls. At least none of the Chibok girls have been seen dancing like a drunkard. They are always in pensive mood. Do they have any cause to be dancing? Are they happy? The video manifests ethnic bias against Fulanis while it ignored the criminal activities of ethnic militia of the Middle Belt who have also massacred Fulanis and rustled their cattle in their thousands. It is a hate video. This video has the potential of causing religious crisis of unprecedented dimension. It is an assault on the self-dignity of every Muslim. It is freedom of expression gone haywire. We therefore demand its withdrawal and an apology to Nigerian Muslims within seven days or the authors and their agents will face legal action if they fail to comply.
