Rapper Folarin Falana aka Falz’s fourth album, ‘Moral Instructions,’ on Tuesday, has become one of the trending topics with intense analysis and praises from twitter users, few hours after its release.
The album dropped on Tuesday with a classroom themed listening party and cover art designs by the legendary Lami Gariokwu.
Hours after the album release, some Nigerians have taken to the medium to dissect the controversial issues discussed on the tracks and praise him.
Fans praised his bravery on talking about social ills and injustice prevalent in the Nigerian society with some others comparing the musician to Fela, who is also trending on Twitter.
@Iam_Abdulaxis tweeted, “Falz is a modernized Fela.I’m not even sorry to say it. Man touched every ills in our society with his Moral instruction album. God bless Falz.”
@Omojuwa said, “Falz is taking on an issue that could literally cost him everything. Being human, you won’t agree with everything he says but to make it about what you disagree with while ignoring what you agree with is to be deceptive. You probably don’t really care about anything!”
@DonBoye tweeted, “Falz made an album solely to combat the ills in our society. This is how you lend your voice to a cause that matters.#MoralInstruction”
@Frank_Lean said, “People are legit getting angry because Falz was compared to Fela, atleast Falz made a brave move. Triple that energy on the ones that think they’re Fela because they smoke weed or perform in a pant!!”
NAN reports that slut-shaming was the most discussed issue and was also raised at the listening party. Fans alleged that Falz’s lyrics shame commercial sex workers which he denied and clarified.
The socially-conscious album features nine songs including ‘Talk’, ‘Follow Follow’ and ‘Hypocrite’; and samples three songs of the late Afrobeat legend, Fela Anikulapo-Kuti.
