Whether it’s Music, Movie, Law, Activism, Falz has proven he is multi-talented and can do it all.
Falz stole people’s hearts after his breakthrough song, “Marry Me” put him in the spotlight. His faux yoruba accent was endearing that it wasn’t hard to fall in love with him.
The Rapper who is born to Popular activist and Lawyer, Femi Falana brought a different style to Rap and carved his own niche.
The Brillant rapper also became the first artist to win an AMVCA with his comic role as Sege in the Popular comedy sitcom ‘Jenifa Diary’.

Bop Daddy ft Ms Banks.
Released in 2020, Falz shows us his lover boy side on “Bop Daddy”. The song features English based rapper, Ms Banks.
It became a fans’ favorite during the early stage of lockdown as it birthed the “Bop Daddy Challenge”.
This is Nigeria
“This Is Nigeria” is a cover of Childish Gambino’s “This Is America” and was brilliantly done.
The song tackles major issues like religious manipulation, Insecurity, Police Brutality, corruption, and others.
This song earned Falz his first ban from the Nigerian Broadcasting Commission and a legal problem with the Muslim Rights Commission who dragged him for using the Hijab in the video.
Bad, Baddo, Baddest ft Olamide, Davido
Released in 2017 off his “27” album, the song featured Olamide and Davido.
This song also caused controversy thanks to a part of Davido’s verse where he referred to popular Media Personality. Dele Momodu as his boy.
Karishika ft Phyno
Borrowed from the iconic Nollywood of the same name, “Kariskika” sees Falz and Phyno go hard at each other with tight and heavy lyrics.
The track also features a comic appearance from comedienne Chigul
Hypocrite ft Demmie Vee
“Everybody is a motherfuckin’ hypocrite” sings Demmie Vee. “Hypocrite” is a commentary on how everyone seems to be the same thing we complain about.
In this song, Falz holds no prisoner as he lays out how people practice hypocrisy unawares.
Something Light ft Ycee
One of my personal favorite from Falz, “Something Light” is a comic song that is easy to rap to.
Featuring Ycee, the song takes a jab at Women who see dates as another feeding venture but still pretend to not like food.
Soldier ft Simi
Falz and Simi will go down in history as one of the best collaboration duos the Nigerian Music Industry saw .
There was this chemistry their music carried that got everyone thinking they were dating (Imagine the shock when it was revealed that Simi was dating Adekunle Gold)
Out of the many songs these two released together, “Soldier” is a favorite. This is more like a play as it tells the story of a Soldier who is trying to woo his love interest who can’t seem to stand him.
The lyrics are funny, lighthearted, and easy to follow.
