SONIC SOUL!

“Brother Muri shout finish we no see am for court
Eh eh we no see am for court
Election don dey come dem go need your support
Eh eh dem go need your support
Since EFCC burst in, we no see you for club
Eh eh we no see you for club
And you get legit work o na wetin you talk
Eh eh na wetin you talk”

The year starts strongly for Falz, I mean this is him literally taking the bulls by the horn (okay not literally, but you get the gist) this early in the year. He has made it clear to us to expect even more with the release of his next album which is slated for January 15th, this next Tuesday.

Falz is fast becoming a music activist, he uses his music to tackle social and political problems. After NBC deemed it necessary to ban his very on point “This is Nigeria”. Well, this did not stop him from using comic and satirical tools to tackle some problems that are rampant in Nigeria. This is a good direction really and we hope his voice never gets stifled.

Positives

The intro of the song sounded like a game as is just in the video. Not a bad intro. We enjoyed the intro in the video particularly, it was quite entertaining.
The lyrics of the song is deeply steeped in satire and mockery of some rather absurd acts done by our politicians and other notable institutions. He was not afraid to address all these issues and get us laughing at the same time.
Some of our favourite lines are
"Four years tenure, three years holiday
Our senators don dey fight Kung-fu again
Eh eh fight Kung-fu again
Three private jets
You say you buy am for church"
The melody of the song is as you would expect of a typical Falz song. We enjoyed it and it was quite memorable. It synchronised well with the rhythm of the song thereby creating a nice harmony.
The video is in a league of its own. Very rare to see actual storylines and depictions in Nigerian Music videos these days. We enjoyed every part of the video.
