Nigerian Singer, Simi has reacted to the warning issued by Muslim
Rights Concern (MURIC) to Nigerian rapper, Folarin Falana known as
Falz to withdraw ‘This is Nigeria’ video within seven days.
DAILY POST had earlier reported that MURIC, in a statement signed
by its executive director, Ishaq Akintola on Tuesday, issued Falz a
seven day ultimatum to take down ‘This is Nigeria’ video,
condemning the song and the video for featuring a character that
dressed like a Fulani man beheading a man and also for portraying
women in hijab as choreographers dancing the ‘shaku-shaku’.
This sparked controversies online as even some Muslims criticised
MURIC for not giving ultimatum to Boko Haram and herdsmen.
Simi, reacting, urged critics of the video to look at the message of
the video instead, while also describing Falz as a genius.
She tweeted, “Falz is a genius. No way around that. The world
would be a better place if we could all learn to see the bigger
picture more often. Intent is key. #AllLove.
