We celebrate yet another super star this week on 9jasound Artist Of The Week.
Folarin Falana, better known by his stage name Falz “The Badh GUy” is a Nigerian rapper, actor, and songwriter.
Falz’s latest track “This is Nigeria” mirrors Childish Gambino’s “This is America” video, only this time, Falz touches on issues peculiar to Nigeria and this song swept everyone off their feet.
In it, he highlights widespread violence and corruption in Africa’s most populous nation, in stark contrast to fellow artists and their fixation with wealth and status.
Check Out The Lyrics Below
This is Nigeria. Look how I am living now. Everybody be criminal. This is Nigeria. Just because I am a criminal.
This is Nigeria. I don’t have a job, and yet they want to know whether my (wrist) watch is original.
This is Nigeria. No electricity. But the people are still working hard. Yet they say we are lazy.
This is Nigeria, with plenty wahala sha. Fulani Herdsmen killing people up and down, carry people the massacre.
This is Nigeria. Come to my area. This is democracy. Yahoo Yahoo (boys) don full everywhere now.
