Falz Receives Some Accolades For 'This is Nigeria' Video

Childish Gambino’s This is America very quickly became the most talked about music video in the world after he released it earlier this month.

So it is not so surprising that Nigerian rapper Falz’s take This Is Nigeria immediately began causing quite the stir on social media.

The video sees Falz dancing and walking through a warehouse as different scenarios play out around him – incredibly similar to Childish Gambino’s video.

But in his version, Falz focuses on recent political, social and economic issues affecting Nigeria, with both the lyrics and symbolism on screen being seen as a scathing criticism of the country.
