SONIC EXPERIENCE!

“Ha, oh, eeh, eeh
Ha, shakara po alakori
Emi ti mi o lowo la po mi
Follow follow wan kill the boy
E just dey go like zombie
OG na God I take beg
Una no go fit to stop my fake flex
My phonetics my complex
Teacher don’t teach me nonsense
Me I want to rock the latest
Shey you no dey feel my swag dey make sense?
I dey tell the boys of how I go take spend”

The second song off Falz’s “Moral Instruction” is seeped in a lot of Afrobeat with a hip-hop spin in it. Just imagine Fela as a rapper and you will probably get this song.

 

 

 

Positives

The song starts with a jazz-like trumpet sound followed a series of other instrumentals then a Fela like intro (in fact, that was Fela singing). Wow, what a very busy and flashy intro.
The lyrics are reminiscent of Fela's zombie, probably why he featured Fela in the song. Follow-follow highlights the same things Fela was talking about in Zombie but in a more passive manner.
The melody of the song is undiluted afrobeat with hip-hop, what an interesting fusion. We did enjoy the melody, it is certainly memorable.

Negatives

The song does not have a video, we hope it gets one and we can already imagine scenes from Zombie mashed up with Fal's performance.
We did like the melody but then again, it did feel like we were given way too many sounds at once, especially the instrumentals of the song. At a [point, we were feeling overwhelmed.

Bottom Line
 

If you can get past the overload of instrumental of the song, it is a song you can enjoy. We mildly recommend it.
