Falz: A Master Storyteller with a great sense of humor

    Falz has been pitched to be the new Fela and it’s not hard to see why. With the type of music he releases, Falz spares no breath sharing his take on everything from love, politics,  societal values to religious views.

    Falz’s breakthrough into the music industry was with the humorous “Marry Me” in which he features Yemi Alade and Ladipoe. The song tells the relatable story of a lady wanting to know when her suitor would marry her.

    Falz comes through with his funny but truthful lyrics that tell the story of the couple in question from both the guy and the girl’s perspective.

    The rapper/singer has a way with words and telling stories that are relatable is his specialty It is the fusion of comic lyrics with contemporary hip-hop in a faux Yoruba accent, he is the modern-day Malcolm X, at least the softer person.

    With five projects to his credits, Falz has touched every aspect of societal issues you can think of. His unique music style might stem from the fact that he is the son of Femi Falana, a renowned Lawyer and activist. Falz is a Lawyer who dropped the profession to pursue music and glad are we he did.

    In 2018, Falz dropped a powerful cover of American rapper’s Childish Gambino’s “This is America” which he titled “This is Nigeria”. The song was so powerful in its message that it got banned by the NBC for supposedly containing vulgar language ( we know the real reasons but agenda must agend).

    His political views became prominent in his fourth album, “Moral Instructions” where he tackles a variety of issues like Police Brutality, Corruption, Insecurities, Politics, Internet Frauds, and Prostitution.

    The album features samples from Legendary Afrobeat founder, Fela Kuti. With Johnny as the opening track, he relates the story of a young Nigerian killed by the police for no real reason, a plague Nigerians have been dealing with for a while.

    One standout track is “Hypocrites” featuring Demmie Vee where Falz presents his case on why everyone is a hypocrite.

    On “Talk”, Falz talks on failed leadership, recycling of political parties, and a number of topics.

    While Falz isn’t afraid to address issues most rappers won’t talk about, he is also a lover boy. With creative songs like “Soldier”, one of his best work, “Loving”, “Baby Boy”, “Bop Daddy” amongst others, he shows the ladies that he also knows how to play the game.

    Falz’s ability to draw listeners into his songs is the ability to send his lyrics in a clear manner. Then throw in his comic behavior with that faux Yoruba accent, what is there not to love.

    His latest song, “One Trouser” Falz beautifully tells the story of a chaotic Lagos street life. In the song, he shows how a gentle-looking person can become a beast in the next, a common characteristic of a Lagosian. As they say, you must be partly okay and crazy to survive the streets of Lagos.

    Falz is truly a phenomenon in the Music Industry, what’s your favorite song from him and why?
