This is Nigeria by Falz

This is Nigeria Lyrics

[Verse 1]
Extremely poor. The medical facilities are poor. We operate a predatory, neocolonial capitalist system, which is founded on fraud and exploitation, and therefore, you are bound to have corruption. Many criminal cases are settled in police stations

[Hook]
Eh eh eh eh eh eh eh eh e-ewo
Eh eh eh eh eh eh eh eh e-ewo
Eh eh eh eh eh eh eh eh e-ewo

[Chorus]
This is Nigeria
Look how I’m living now
Look how I’m living now
Everybody be criminal
This is Nigeria
Look how we living now
Look what we eating now
Everybody be criminal

[Verse 2]
This is Nigeria
Just because I’m on TV now
Person wey no get work
Is checking to see
If my watch is original
This is Nigeria
Wey da Madam Philomena
Money vanish from your office
36 million you talk say na animal
This is Nigeria
Never end the recession o
When looter and killers and stealers are still contesting election o
Politicians wey thief some billions and billion no dey go prison o
Police station dey close by 6
Security reason o
(Babaa, oche o, babaa, oche o babaa)

My brothers and sisters, I want you to put your hands up right now, because your miracle is coming this week. If you believe, let me hear you say Amen!

[Verse 3]
This is Nigeria
Praise and worship we singing now
Pastor put his hands on the breast of his members
He’s pulling the demons out
This is Nigeria
No electricity daily o
Your people are still working multiple jobs
And they talk say we lazy o
This is Nigeria
There is plenty Wahala sha
Fulani Herdsmen still they slaughter
Carry people they massacre
This is Nigeria
Works in my area
This is democracy
Political hysteria
Yahoo Yahoo don tear everywhere now
And we act like it’s so cool
Casting the P, I’m being castigated just for trying to be noble
This Nigeria
Look at my nation o
SARS stop me for road any explanation you go talk am for station o

(Sir am, Sir look I’m sorry, I’m a student, am just a student of the University of Lagos. We are just coming from the club. Ok so my friend and I. No sir I have my I.D. to prove.)

[Hook]
Eh eh eh eh eh eh eh eh e-ewo
Eh eh eh eh eh eh eh eh e-ewo
Eh eh eh eh eh eh eh eh e-ewo

[Chorus]
This is Nigeria
Look how I’m living now
Look how I’m living now
Everybody be criminal
This is Nigeria
Look how we living now
Look what we eating now
Everybody be criminal

(This is breaking, transmission of ah, transmission eh, transmission.)

[Outro]
But what happens everyday is that, the system has allowed it. For instance there is no law that allows you to take money from the church, invest in business, and privatize it. No. It is only in Nigeria were you can take money from the church, money contributed by poor congregation members. You go and set up a university that the members cannot attend. Cannot send their children to. It’s against the rule and the law of God. It’s against the constitution
