Rapper Falz Talks About Making Conscious Music And Using His Platform To Be A Voice For Others...

Nigerian Rapper Folarin Folana, a.k.a Falz , who is renowned for his satires, disclosed chatted with HipTV about his motivation for making what he described as “conscious music”.

He said, as much as music remains a tool for causing thrills, the craft should also be leveraged on by Nigerian artistes towards addressing matters of social importance.

“Music is an entertainment tool but it’ll still medium with which to speak up and inspire posterity. They’ve been telling us we’re leaders of tomorrow since but we’re still waiting for tomorrow,” he said.

“I’m among the new generation and I’m making conscious music. It’s also a channel through which I convey emotions. I could eat amala-ewedu and later decide to sing about it in studio.”

Falz has made headlines for his socially conscious projects — including ‘Moral Instruction’ (2019) and ‘This is Nigeria’ (2018) that caused heated criticisms and legal threats.

“I’ve never claimed I’m faultless. But I feel that we have to develop principles and rejig our morals if we’re going to move forward and get out of the chaos we’re in right now,” he had once said.

“As entertainers, we have a huge voice and platform. If I don’t use that to speak truths, or to attempt steering my people in the right direction, then I feel like I’m doing a disservice.

  1. I love this guy. Is he married? 🤩

  2. They have used your content on child of the world to act one nolly wood movie,something called hope..
    Nolly wood ,copy and paste

  3. But this activism only started after you made Nigerian version of Childish gambino’s hit. Good luck though.

  4. Right now, Folarin is the only Nigeria artiste CONSTANTLY using his songs to point out social ills. He's such a darling, the kind of musician we need. I feel sad when I see Davido not saying a thing, (except when his Uncle was contesting for Governor).

    Goes a long way to show that an average Nigeria musician is only after the fame and money, little wonder they fade away quickly and quietly.

    In Africa music cannot be for entertainment, it is a revolutionary tool. -Fela Anikulapo

  5. I just love this guy, the music, humour and all plus bobo yen 'hans' gan

  6. Falz my bahd guy. He's got a unique style and the right mentality. The greatest musicians of all time didn't just sing for people to dance.

  7. The greatest musicians, according to historical account, didn't just sing for people to dance, they used it to sensitize. Falz is my real bahd guy.

  8. Folarin Omo Falana, ride on.
