Falz the Bahd guy touched a whole lot



Its been four days since Falz released "This is Nigeria" video and it has gotten 1.7millon views on YouTube. The song touches a lot of areas in our country Nigeria with Falz talking about many setbacks and things that shouldn't be happening but are. The song is a remake of "This is America" by Childish Gambino. 

Here are some quotable lyrics that really speaks a lot:

Many criminal cases are settled in police stations, albeit illegal

Where that madam philomena?
Money vanish for your office
36 milli, you talk say na animal

This is nigeria
Never ending recession oh
Where looters and killers and stealers are still
Contesting election oh
Politician wey thief some billion and billion
He no dey go prison oh
Uh, police station dey close by 6- security reason oh

Ahn, this is nigeria, praise and worship, we’ singing out
Pastor put his hand on the breast of his member,
He’s pulling the demon out

No electricity daily oh [eh]
Young people are still working multiple jobs
And they talk say we lazy oh

Fulani herdsmen still dey slaughter
Carry people dey massacre

Yahoo yahoo don tear everywhere now
And we act like it’s so cool

This is break in transmission of ehm, sansmission e
Transmission”

there’s no law that allows you
To take money from the church, invest in business
And privatize it- no

It is only in nigeria where you can take money from the church
Money contributed by poor congregation member [public fund]
You go and setup a university that the members cannot attend
Cannot send their children to.
