Falz’s decision to record a Nigerian version of American rapper, Puff Daddy’s “This Is America” seems to have paid off, as the American star gushed over the track on setting eyes on the video and even taking to his IG page to promote it.
Lately, Falz has done more of reworking songs by American artistes like Kanye West and Drake. Songs he’s reworked include Drake’s “Worst Behavior” and one of Kanye West’s tracks. However, those tracks didn’t gain accolades from across the border like the case has been with “This Is America” which he reworked and titled “This Is Nigeria.”
Diddy reposted the video of Falz Naija version of the song and captioned it; “@falzthebahdguy #Nigeria. Let’s GO!!!” On seeing Diddy’s post, Falz gushed with the following words; “Wawu!!! Diddy reposted #This Is Nigeria on his Gram. Blown.” Many fans came on board to congratulate him, saying he’s fast joining Wizkid on the foreign scene.
But other fans seem to think he’s too much of a copycat, as he’s been doing that lately. They asked for mediocrity not to be eminent. Instead, creativity and originality should be allowed to thrive.
