SONIC SOUL!

“Ahn
Johnny just drop
Na person shout am down
Johnny wey dey innocent
Johnny wey dey new in town
Them kill am for Jos
For no just cause
Nobody fit comot for house dem no born us”

Falz has finally released his fourth studio album titled “Moral Instruction”, after teasing us with the things to come with the first single Talk, which we recently reviewed. It would appear Falz has evolved from using his song for just comic relief to entertain us to now mixing his humour which has become more subtle with more socio consciousness.

Positives

The song starts in a rather unique way, the sound was reminiscent of early 2000s Hip Hop in Nigeria.
Lyrically the song is deep. Not only does it tell a story but the story is a moral instruction. It is basically an example of the day to day struggles face at the hands of The Nigerian Police (Most especially the now-defunct infamous SARS).
The vocals of the song were clear and we were able to listen to the song without any problems or challenges, talk about good music.
We did enjoy the melody of the song, Falz is one of the few surviving rappers left in Nigeria. Many started that as rappers but are now singers, It is good to see someone who has stuck to the core of his music and has not bent his will.
The instrumentals have this classic Hip Hop feel which we did enjoy. A nice well varied and balanced set of instrumentals.
