Falz slams celebrities who support tribalism, says they should be bullied
Falz tags celebrities who support tribalism senseless, says they should be bullied
Falz criticises public figures who support tribalism.
Nigerian Musician, lawyer, and activist, Folarin Falana known as Falz, has advocated for trolling and the cancellation of celebrities that endorse tribalism and prejudice.
The musician made this known when he appeared on ‘Breakfast Central,” where he spoke on “The Future of Nigerian Politics and Youth Participation’.
Such celebrities, according to the singer, are “senseless,” and they merit the online abuse they receive.
He said, “I find it funny but at the same time not funny because I see where people are coming from. For the one that has fuelled the tribalism and bigotry we spoke of earlier on. I say they hundred percent deserve the bullying they’re getting because that is stupid of them. It’s such an evil thing to put fuel in. I’ve seen celebrities that I thought had some sense in them, I’ve seen them blatantly fuelling this thing; this tribalism and bigotry in such a senseless manner. I think those ones deserved the bullying.”
- Falz expresses delight at his countrymen’s newfound political awareness.
- Falz warns INEC about the upcoming gubernatorial elections.
Even though he spoke out against celebrities being bullied because they publicised their favourite candidates, he voiced displeasure and insisted that everyone has the freedom to support anybody they choose.
Falz is not the only well-known person speaking out against and denouncing the tribal slur that has recently taken over the social media arena as a result of the just-ended general elections and the upcoming governorship elections.
In his words, “However, for the other people that have just come to say, ‘This is my preferred candidate’. Everyone of course, like we know, should be fully free from any attack. You know, I should be able to say, ‘This is my preferred candidate and I stand by that’. However, we know what we are going through as a country and we know the people that kept us here as a country. So, when those people come with their full chests and say, ‘This is who I support’, I see why people attack them. However, it’s not okay. Nobody should be bullied for their choice of candidate but those people too, they should think about it. Look at it, so far, it’s been going round. They too are feeling it.”
