We Didn’t Censor Falz’s “This Is Nigeria” Before It Was Released – NFVCB by made4naijamusic: 9:25am On May 31, 2018
Following the spontaneous reactions that trailed Falz the Bahd Guy’s latest video, This is Nigeria, where he showcased his female choreographers dancing Shaku-Shaku in Hijab and several other issues affecting the nation, the National Film And Video Censors Board (NFVCB), Abuja, the agency in charge of censorship and rating of music videos and movies has reacted.

In an interview with veteran entertainment journalist Rasheed Abubaka, the Director, Licensing Department of the NFVCB, Cornell Agim said the rapper, Falz didn’t bring his music video for licensing and rating before he released it to the public and unfortunately, the agency’s monitoring team hasn’t reported the video to the directorate.

He said that, though it is their job to censor and rate videos before they get to the public, they can’t be everywhere. That is why journalists and members of the public affected by the visuals are expected to notify them. With that, they can investigate the videos.

In his words, ‘the agency do censorship and rating of music video before it gets to the general public. We ensure we do analysis of those videos. We also try as much as possible not to tamper with the creative intention of any artiste except they come with some obscenity, which we most time kick against. BUT Falz didn’t bring his music video for licensing before it gets to the public. As the Director of Licensing, I haven’t seen the video. Same as the agency. None of our monitoring team has brought it to my notice. Hence, we didn’t censor it before it gets to the public.

He added that,

‘the truth is, most time we can’t reach out. We are handicap because we are not everywhere and we can’t be everywhere. That’s why people like you (journalists) should notify us once you see things like that. Bring them to our notice and we’ll investigate it and bring the perpetrators to book. Often time, we get complain from Nigerians, saying what’s the agency doing? We are trying our best though our best might not be good enough. That’s why we need people like you to supply us with information about the affected song.

The agency do organise sensational programmes for filmmakers and music video doctors. We held one recently in Bauchi, we called it consultative forum but many of them didn’t come. You invite them, they won’t come. Some of them will even ask you for transportation fee. We also print out handouts containing guidelines. If you visit our website, there are relevant materials on licensing and rating. But are they visiting the site? Are they reading the uploaded materials? Despite our efforts in sanitizing the industry, some of them would prefer to break the rules’.

It's better he didn't take the video to you guys for censoring, you would have ban the video before it release. What about songs like WO by olamide,living things by nice e.t.c.... did you censor them before their release ?

You guys at NFVCB should get your priorities right. There are more important issues to focus on than looking for Falz video. The dude spoke the mind of millions of Nigerians under 4 mins. He touched the corners of problems in this country, he did what many people even artists would not do. This is a song and a video for the people.

Please go and focus on all those yeyebrities using noise and pon pon beats to display ladies bum bum and shaking of ass in their videos that has zero moral contents. They need more attention than Falz the bad guy.

Is it not amazing that the same clowns who were attacking and accusing the president of demarketting Nigerians for agreeing Nigerians are fantastically corrupt and the ones championing and hailing Falz song about Nigerians being criminals. You see what bigoted and piggish idiotic hate can cause?

So what is wrong if they do the shaku-shaku in hijab. One idiot Minister of Hijab affairs was complaining on social media about this.

In other news...they wear the hijab when drinking codeine, they wear hijab when taking drugs so stop the foolishness

You are talking about falz video all of a sudden deviate to organizing sensational programmes.

How would you organize a programme that would be too far for your target audiences to attend when you are not the one paying their transport fee.

Programmes are organized within the reach of key stakeholders to attend and to worsen matters Bauchi is a crisis hotbed with low security presence and violence is easily incited for flimsy excuses. Una wan kill family bread winners abi undecided

what security programme was in place to ensure the safety of the lives and property of key stakeholders and their accommodation arrangements but if na to steal money all in the name of organizing a programme una can do and undo

If you had held it Lagos you would not be making statements about low attendance

I did not expect Falz as a lawyer to generalize or tag every Nigeria a criminal because I am not one and there are several others who are not.Apart from this other things in the music video speak about Nigeria.
