Falz condemns alleged ban of ‘This is Nigeria’ by NBC

Ace rapper, Folarin Falana, popularly called Falz, has condemned the alleged ban of his song, This is Nigeria, by the National Broadcasting Commission.

On his Instagram page, Falz shared a picture of the letter allegedly written by NBC zonal office in Jos to a media organisation in the zone, fining it for playing certain songs, including Falz’s.

He captioned the social media post: “This is Nigeria. Look how we living now, everybody be criminal” is apparently a vulgar line.
