Some of di issues Falz touch inside di song
Di music start wit Falz, as im carry radio dey listen to commentary wey dey tok about poor infrastructure and corruption.
Na so pipo start to dey fight, one man kill pesin, and im just dance cross di dead bodi as anoder pesin dey take di picture.
You go need to pay close attention to try catch everytin Falz dey tok.

Di girls dey dance shaku-shaku fit mean say di kontri no care even as some of dis girls never come back house.
For one scene inside di video, one man wey wear Fulani cloth use cutlass cut pesin head comot.
Nigeria dey presently battle wit crisis for some part of di kontri where pipo wey dem suspect to be Fulani herdsmen dey kill pipo.
For di part of di security agency, im tok how di Special Anti-Robbery Squad dey arrest pipo anyhow without reason and no dey committed to dia work.
Lazy Nigerian Youth?
One scene show as some pipo come down from University of Lagos shuttle wit drink for dia hand and dem dey waka like say dem no get plan.
Im also mention how yahoo-yahoo don become di in-tin for di kontri.
But im also tok about how Nigerians dey struggle dey work different jobs.
How Nigerians reason di song?
Dem reason am well-well, infact di song begin trend for twitter not long afta e drop.
