“We are not withdrawing the video neither” – Falz’s rep on #ThisisNigeria takedown
Falz has been asked to take down This is Nigeria video by The Muslim Rights Concern (MURIC). The group ask that he withdraw his ‘This is Nigeria’ video and apologise to Nigerians, or face legal action.
The group said this in a statement signed and released hours ago. In the 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, said the dancers in the video in no way depict the situation of the girls.
In reaction, Femi Soro, a member of Falz’s management team has reacted saying:
“We have nothing to say. We are not withdrawing the video neither are we commenting on their claims. If they have any grievance they can head to court and we will meet them”.
