According to the cable.ng, a statement has been issued by The Muslim Rights Concern(MURIC) asking Folarin ‘Falz’ Falana to withdraw his ‘This is Nigeria’ video and apologize to Nigerians, or face legal action.
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,” the statement read.
In the ‘This is Nigeria’ video, some girls dressed in hijab were seen dancing the “shaku shaku” dance.
Responding to criticisms that trailed the video, Falz explained that the girls were a representation of the abducted Chibok girls still in Boko Haram captivity.
But MURIC, in a statement by Ishaq Akintola, its director, said the dancers in the video in no way depict the situation of the girls.
The group also condemned “a character that dressed like a Fulani man, who suddenly abandoned his traditional guitar and beheaded a man” featured in the video.
Describing the video as “thoughtless, insensitive and highly provocative,” MURIC said it could brew religious and ethnic crisis.
It also said the video is spiteful and intended to denigrate Islam and Muslims.
What do you think about these claims? Should Falz take down the ‘This is Nigeria’ video?
