With the Muslim Rights Concern (MURIC) yet to forgive him for the alleged “hurt” he caused in “This is Nigeria”, Folarin Falana, a.k.a Falz has challenged the group in another single, “Talk”.
In what may affect the forthcoming general elections, Falz used the lyrics of the song to address critical societal issues, indirectly tackling President Muhammadu Buhari, other politicians, pastors, leaders and even girls sleeping with different men for money.
Falz, now being described as another Fela, advised Nigerians, especially the youths, to speak up for what they truly want.
The lyrics touched MURIC’s threat over “This is Nigeria”; politicians who do not fulfil their promises, NYSC monthly allowance still at N19,800 in 2019; wealthy pastors acquiring private jets, young girls going into prostitution, and many more.
In 2018, Falz released the controversial audio/visual song “This Is Nigeria”, a mock-up of American rapper Childish Gambino’s “This Is America”. It addresses societal issues including SARS brutality and killings in some parts of the country.
MURIC threatened him with a lawsuit asking him to withdraw the song over the use of appearance of girls dancing “shaku shaku” while wearing hijabs. The song was later banned from public broadcast by the National Broadcasting Commission (NBC) in August 9, 2018.
Falz, a lawyer turned singer, began his professional career as a music artiste in 2009, and currently owns an independent record label called “Bahd Guys Records.”.
He is the son of famous human rights lawyer, Femi Falana (SAN).
He hinted fans that he would release an album titled ‘Moral Instruction’ on January 15.
Talk’ video is directed by Prodigeezy. It features Falz driving alongside his friends with different scenes relating to the lyrics played out
