The current situation of things is that our beloved rapper Folarin Falana aka Falz the Bahd guy is trending on Twitter for all the right reasons.
The lawyer turned rapper today dropped a new single ‘Talk‘ which has gotten Nigerians talking. ‘Talk’ is a society conscious tune which highlights the current situation of Nigeria, hunger, insecurity, prostitution, internet fraud etc.
Falz did not forget to call out the ruling party and the presidency for failing to deliver change to Nigerians after being elected into office.
Nigerians, especially on Twitter, are lauding the brilliance of the rapper for speaking out when some people cowered in silence. It could be recalled that Bahd Guys boss, dropped ‘This Is Nigeria’ which caused deep conversations on social media about Nigeria.
Today, Falz is being likened to the progenitor of Afrobeat, Fela Anikulapo Kuti whose music was a weapon of activism. The legendary Fela was a known critic of the government of the day which incidentally Major General Buhari was Head of State at the time. 34 years after Falz speaks as much as Fela against the incumbent which is headed by President Buhari. Some say his content and purpose are in sync with that of the late Afrobeat legend.
Read the tweets as shared by Nigerians sparked by the buzzing tune ‘Talk’.

Falz talked about how Politicians use us, shading APC and PDP alike. Talked about prostitution, religious leaders who care less about their followers, Senators fighting, jungle justice, and ended it with fatality on the incompetence of this government.
Fela the bahd guy.

Falz is a true artiste, a redefined version of fela in our modern times.
Others are just egocentric entertainers showing off their wealth to oppress the suppressed, nonchalant weed smoking game, carrying women about & putting on designer clothes
