What did Falz do? A lot.
Falz has dominated the chats and conversation in 2019 with the release of his third studio album, Moral Instruction, which drove the social and political conversation of Nigeria, and elevated the place of art as a tool for societal change. With piercing songs such as Hypocrite and Talk, the rapper created a set list that offered a 360 experience featuring the best of entertainment, performances, satire and layered education at the concert.
Falz ran the entire spectrum of his personality and talents, fusing his music with comedy and the best character acting. The Sweet Boys Association (SBA) made a live appearance for the first time. But high-fliers, Basketmouth, JJC and IK Osakhioduwa, had their wives including actress Funke Akindele, Elsie Okpocha & Olo Osakioduwa show up and break up the party.
Sola Sobowale, also threw in some drama, breaking up a strip-tease performance. A huge crossover was the appearance of Falz’s character from Chief Daddy, Famzy Beecroft, who made a spectacular appearance and performed his hit tune “Moving Mad”. A shout to the internet viral star of the You Dont Touch Me video was had, while Sweet Girls Simi, Niniola, Seyi Shay threw in style, vocals and more to add to the magic.
Explaining why he took a new direction with the show Falz said,
The Falz Experience is one of the most open windows into who I am as a performer and entertainer. My fans are a huge part of Falz. They are the driving force of my art, and remain a solid reason why I exist as a musician.
