American music mogul, Sean ‘Diddy’ Combs has hailed Nigerian music star, Folarin Falana, better known as Falz over his recently released song ‘This Is Nigeria’.
Falz’s ‘This is Nigeria’ is a replica of Childish Gambino’s ‘This is America’ song, using it to address a number of societal issues in Nigeria.
The video which was released late on Friday was received with widespread acclaim, and criticism from some quarters, largely due to the topical issues highlighted in it.
Reacting to the video which has since gone viral, Diddy, owner of Revolt TV and Bad Boy Records, posted a short clip of Falz’s video on his Instagram page.
While acknowledging the Nigerian rapper/comic-actor, he wrote: “#Nigeria LETS GO!”
‘This is Nigeria’ was produced by Wande Thomas and the video was directed by Prodigeezy.
On the song, Falz raps about the menace of Fulani herdsmen, codeine epidemic among Nigerian youth, the much-panned special anti-robbery squad (SARS), internet fraud also known as ‘yahoo yahoo’, the Chibok and Dapchi schoolgirls abduction.
