In the past 72 hours, Nigerians have been buzzing over Falz the Bahd Guy’s new brilliant single “This Is Nigeria” which is a cover of American rapper Childish Gambino’s institutionally charged “This Is America”. Just like Gambino’s, Falz’s version was released with a compelling video that sees him addressing various political, social, religious and cultural ills in present-day Nigeria.
The laudable video has amassed over 700k YouTube views in less than 72-hours and has also received applause from American rapper and mogul Diddy. It would be safe to say that the visual which ran at a length of 3 minutes 42 seconds left no stone unturned as the laughable sad reality of Nigeria was concisely put on display. While well-deserved praises have been accorded to Falz, very little has been said of Prodigeezy; the young director and cinematographer who brought the idea to life.
