Falz Dares MURIC, Says No Law Against Dancing Shaku Shaku In Hijab

Days after The Muslim Rights Concern (MURIC), gave rapper, Falz, an ultimatum to withdraw his ‘This Is Nigeria’ video, apologise or be sued, the rapper has called their bluff.

Speaking during an interview, Falz, wondered why Nigerians have decided to overlook the suffering of the girl child.

Asked if the scene of the girls dancing Shaku Shaku in hijab was deliberate, the rapper answered in affirmative.

In his words,  “’It was very intentional.  We continue to forget or neglect the innocence of the girl child and because of all the issues that we are having, the kidnappings and the killings especially in the northern part of the country, the Chibok girls and very more recently the Dapchi girls, It is very disturbing and we don’t often talk about them and I was a bit surprised to hear people say why would you put girls in Hijab to dance Shaku Shaku…common, is there anything wrong with people dancing because they are wearing Hijabs? Is their any law against that?”

In a statement signed by its director Ishaq Akintola MURIC called on the National Film And Video Censors Board (NFVCB) to ban the video.

The statement said:

“We call the attention of security agencies to this hate action. We remind Nigerians of the outcome of similar provocative actions in the past and their unpalatable outcomes. The National Film And Video Censors Board (NFVCB), a regulatory agency set up by Act No. 85 of 1993 to regulate films and the video industry has a case to answer. ‘Shaku Shaku’ video was shot and released under its watch. Instead of going violent, Nigerian Muslims should take those behind the ‘Shaku Shaku’ video to court in order to serve as a deterrent to others. We therefore give notice of impending legal action against the artist behind the ‘Shaku Shaku’ video unless the latter is withdrawn and an apology is widely published within seven days.” the statement read.
