Yesterday, a radio station in Plateau State was asked to pay an N100,000 fine for playing the song 'This is Nigeria' by Falz among others by Olamide and Wande Coal. The musician found this ban to be hilarious and now the rest of the country is reacting via our favorite medium Twitter.
See some reactions below.
NBC cannot arrest us in our house. I have been blasting This is Nigeria on my stereo— Mummy J (@honeysweet016) August 10, 2018
Falz Give The People What They Want
We now live in a society where you are treated a criminal for saying the truth.#This_is_Nigeria.....— Temi (@omowumi4temi) August 10, 2018
Falz abeg release part 2....God bless you
Well, are we?
Olamide smiles to the bank despite releasing song, 'Science students' with its bare embrace &glamorisation of anti-social behaviours; Falz's #ThisIsNigeria attempted to correct the societal evil Nigerians face everyday but gets banned by the NBC.— The Great Sage (@myunicy) August 10, 2018
Are we really a serious country?
What Is The Truth In Our Society?
"This Is Nigeria, look at how we living now, everybody be criminal"— SOMMIEE'S COPY (@InLammLight) August 10, 2018
It's a fact, no one likes to be told the truth LOL
Falz used This Is Nigeria to address major issues going on in Nigeria and now the NBC has banned it.— Iseunife The First (@Shawnife_) August 9, 2018
This country is one that hates the truth/ people that tell it. Instead of attempting to address the issues, the authorities try to suppress the message.
Is This Statement Truly Vulgar?
Apparently Falz's line "this is Nigeria; look how we living now. everybody be criminal" has been flagged "vulgar" and the song is now declared "unfit for radio".— Folaranmi Folayan (@TheFavoredWoman) August 9, 2018
See why sometimes I can't blame our musicians if they choose to give social commentary a wide berth? pic.twitter.com/7bp3ZENluK
The NBC Suppresses The Truth
?Instead of them to address the issues raised, they will try to suppress The truth but this action will only make the song more popular. Anything you ban gets a BlackMarket appeal. Try this On YouTube too by the way. ️#ThisIsNigeria https://t.co/QgUpc5Jnqb— SEGA L’éveilleur® (@segalink) August 9, 2018
Naija All The Way!
The ironic thing about this..? This is Nigeria. https://t.co/GhTyJMa0Yk— K10 (@officiallyk10) August 9, 2018
If This Isn't The Truth, We Don't Know What Is
NBC (National Broadcasting Commission) bans This Is Nigeria by Falz. Nigeria is one country that hates when people tell it the truth. It's hard to make conscious music here, the powers that be will always use their authority to frustrate your attempts to address pressing issues.— World Publicist (@IsimaOdeh) August 9, 2018
Will Nigeria Be Great Again?
NBC banned “This is Nigeria” by Falz.— Manchester United ️ (@Iam_Abdulaxis) August 9, 2018

I Mean, We Certainly Have Youtube
NBC banned Falz "This is Nigeria" like anyone really watches TV. Lol— KVNG (@PRINCE_VIIII) August 9, 2018
Nigerians are certainly going to keep listening to 'This Is Nigeria', ban or no ban.
