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

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 milli you talk say na animal
This is Nigeria
Never ending recession oh
When looter and killers and stealers are still contesting election oh
Politicians wey thief some billion and billion e no dey go prison o
Police station dey close by 6
Security reason oh
(Babaa, ese o, babaa, ese o babaa)

Interlude
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 oh
Your people are still working multiple jobs
And they talk say we lazy oh
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 oh
SARS stop me for road any explanation you go talk am for station o

Interlude
(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
