In the summary of just concluded year, it is obviously safe to put Fela and Falz in one sentence, not in a comparative way but rather in similarities.
Falz just like Fela has been conscientiously and diligently participating in the movement to the actualisation of good governance through music and in real life.
However, it all started as just a mare lyrics, in the early days, Falz was concerned with the governance of his people through music, always expressing how he wants things to be in order.

Also, in the process, many thought it was just music, nothing serious because of how he sometimes infuse comical gestures and expression into the message.
But alas, it turned glaring that he is truly a committed fighter not just with music but also, in reality, strategizing and implementing actions of words.

Falz graduated from the University of Reading, England, with an LLB honours degree in law and also being birthed by Nigerian internationally acclaimed human right activist Femi Falana as a dad, even though it’s not an activist prerequisite probably because most are born with it.
Falz has sent numerous messages to the government through his music, dishing out controversial and critical conscious music.
Also, he dissected the state of the nation in the song ‘This is Nigeria’ sampled from Childish Gambino originally ‘This is America’ making an informative video to express what is happening in the Nigerian system.
Furthermore, he was never limited to the political sector only, just like Fela Kuti, he touched every social spectrum, talks about religious issues, social crisis in general.
Falz was intentional on this record ‘Hypocrite’ highlighting every problem facing Nigeria in just 3 minutes, 46 seconds is quite applaudable.
In conclusion, Falz has been representing the youth and solidifying his name in the book of revolutionary acknowledgement.
