Nigerian singer Folarin Falana, also known as Falz, has released his first single of the year, tagged “Talk”.
As the 2019 general election draws near, the artiste used lyrics of the song to address critical leadership issues and advised Nigerians, especially the youth, to speak up for what they truly want.
Falz, now popularly known by industry watchers as a ‘Music Activist’, had earlier hinted fans that he would release an album titled “Moral Instruction” on Jan. 15.
He said of the album: “There is a dire need for us to redefine the concept of humanity and morality.
“There is a pressing need for re-education and re-orientation of the people, for this is the only way we can restore sanity.”
NAN reports that 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 Femi Falana (SAN), a Nigerian human rights activist and lawyer.
The music artists came to limelight after his song “Marry Me” (featuring vocals from Poe and Yemi Alade) won him a nomination in the “Best Collaboration of The Year” category at the 2015 Nigeria Entertainment Awards.
In 2018, Falz released a controversial audio/visual song “This Is Nigeria”, a mock-up of American rapper Childish Gambino’s “This Is America”.
