NIGERIA HEAD OF STATE KILL BIAFRANS
i know this is suppose to potray Nigeria but come on!!, is this all there is to Nigeria. I def did not enjoy the video
Orobo..after eating all our food..and collect money for shows..come show one side of 9ja..
Can anyone name one slum in America that lacks 24 hour Electricity, Water, and Naked kids running around in the gutters???
I dont like the concept at all. Why is he made to look as if he is a super rich/HERO guy in a totally poor country. Who directed this crap? I dont like the lyrics and I dont like the video and I dont like the negative portrayal of my country. PERIOD. *Rolling my eyes big time.* AH!
SMH to the people that hate this video. Do you even know what your Nigeria looks like? The more they show you the truth we all turn our back on the more sense we're going to get. Instead of insulting the video, shouldn't we all start trying to change our country?
I love the video……Nice…..
and the lagos govt allowed this man to shoo this video without question ehh na wa oh
just wonder why some idiots are attacking this lovely Guy(Rick Ross) ask yourself is this video not shot in Nigeria, was its shot in Congo or Senegal? stupid idiots.. though i shed tears watching this video cos alot of people are suffering alot. that what amaze him, its looks so real so awkward seeing people in such state in Nigeria upon all the resources.God help us
It's Nigeria isn't it?. The beggars, the garbage, the area boys, the beautiful people, the smiles, the sad eyes, the hustle, the rich, the poor, the pollution, and most importantly, the resilient people. That's all Nigeria. He didn't fake a thing in that video. I LOVE IT! its better than any video made by any Nigerian artiste portraying the fake lifestyle that 130 million of us don't have. RICKROZAY, i say, Well done!
My opinion: Fair enough, Ross wanted to portray Nigeria he shot the slums. My aggro: why did he not shoot in more cosmopolitan area's? Give his viewers a birds eye view of the society he has filmed in. Bloody nincompoop, fooking idiöt.
What is fine in lekki,vi and agah?Those flooded zones is what you guys are calling beautiful or cosmopolitan??Not much difference if he shot it in lekki sef, even the so called banana island is not so wonderful, so many weeded areas around and all.Ghetto pass ghetto, you LIBers should stop patronizing fake life.Or you want make he shoot the video for una papa house? Thats why Nigeria will never go forward because we fail to admit the truth, suffering and smiling.Abeg Ricky more of this videos, let the whole world know we have a highly corrupt government leaving people in abject poverty.
Im very sure the images in this video is Nigeria... for those that are angry... you re just amongst those that are afraid of the truth.. on the bandwagon of deception.. ur all are the problems holding Nigeria back.. listen to the lyrics, watch the yankee version and you will get the message... more to life than faking up reality... if he' had shot the video on Banana island you guys will be happy abi... he came from the projects, just like siasia from Ajegunle... and he's proud he's a product of where everyone try to hide and think nothing good can come from... he's free from deception and if you cant accept the truth about this video... you are down and beaten to it.... @Linda you dont have to ask us what we think, what do you think about the video?
It would have been a lot better if Ross had shown to the world the good areas in Nigeria. It would have helped our Country's image, economy, and also boosted the self-esteem of our people. Thanks to Rick Ross, Nigeria might be seen no differently from war torn African countries such as Somalia e.t.c when really it is NOT THAT BAD.
The negative reaction against Ross is understandable, though misplaced (and boring). It’s like the cottage industry calling for “positive” news about “Africa” in Western media. But equally problematic are those praising Ross for “exposing” poor conditions in Lagos when Ross is merely using Nigeria as a backdrop to make him look hard: “We’re so hard we throw dollar bills off boats to poor kids in Nigeria.” And the references to the Biafra war and old soccer games are baffling. If he was trying to show how Nigerians are struggling with poverty or resisting their conditions, why not use more recent/relevant images like Occupy Nigeria?After all this, I still think the best retort to Ross comes in the form of comedy:http://africasacountry.com/2012/09/21/when-rick-ross-filmed-a-music-video-in-a-lagos-slum/
