Rick Ross piss Nigerians off with new video

American rapper Rick Ross has been criticized on Facebook and Twitter for portraying Nigeria in a bad light.

The promo video shows the rapper, dressed in gold chains and a flashy watch, visiting the slums in Lagos and rapping as he's mobbed by crowds. Women are filmed washing clothes and goats are caught wandering around the slums while the video also features news footage.

The video titled  “Hold Me Back”  shows children reaching  out for dollar bills.

On twitter, filmtriQue fumed: 'Rick Ross is just trying to paint a negative picture about Nigeria. We’re not monkeys over here.'

RobertAlai said: 'Damn!!! I also don't like this Rick Ross video shot in Nigeria, it is  just too negative.'

The video starts with commentary about the Biafra war and then launches into a series of clips shot at different poor areas of Lagos State with scores of Nigerians chanting along the chorus with him.
