Human rights activist and renowned lawyer, Femi Falana (SAN) has
dared the Muslims Rights Concern, MURIC, to sue his rapper son,
Folarin Falana popularly known as Falz, if they are aggrieved by his
trending ‘This is Nigeria’ video.

CREEBHILLS recalls that the group during the week released a
statement, ordering Falz to take down “This is Nigeria” video which,
according to them, ridicules their religion because some girls were
seen in the footage wearing hijab and dancing Shaku Shaku.
They also threatened to take a legal action against the rapper after
the expiration of the ultimatum given to him.

But reacting to the threat, the renowned lawyer told Vanguard that
in as much as freedom of speech is constitutionally guaranteed in
the country, nobody has the right to threaten another person.
According to him, the video in question contains a lot of messages
and desired to be encouraged by anybody who has the interest of this
country at heart.
Speaking further, Falana said he has confirmed that his son, who’s
also a lawyer by profession is handling the threat within the ambit of
the law.

interest of our country at heart.

him. My son has promised that he would meet them in court. I
support that decision.

Freedom of speech is constitutionally guaranteed.

said the renowned lawyer.
