Verses

SONIC BOOM!

“And the fake prophet
Some dey for convent
With underage boys
wey dem make boyfriend
And you claim consent
when you messing with a minor
Some say na devil box oh
No telli (Television) for their parlour”

The year is not over and we probably have what is called the album of the year in Moral Instruction. He has said he did not come to make us dance and entertain us but to address some serious issues in the society. He lied, he is entertaining us while addressing these issues, talk about ingenuity. As usual, this is him calling out all hypocrites and creating awareness.

Positives

Lovely set of tunes give us an intro to the song. Really, it is great to be reviewing songs like this, it gives us so much joy. From the beginning one can tell the song will be lovely and we were not disappointed.
There is real lyrical depth in this song, Human rights, Religion, Moral Conducts. Falz Addresses these in the song.
Allow us to quote a tweet we saw on twitter recently
"Fela dropped the weed and mic, two musicians (no we will not be mentioning their names: and this extends to all Fela wannabes out there) picked the weed while Falz picked the mic". It has been a while we have seen a musician openly and consistently lend their voice and music to criticising our government and other institutions.
The addition of Demmie vee into the song is ingenious. We really loved it, the song is melodic and memorable. The melody combines well with the rhythm to create an almost perfect harmony. I mean, a perfect blend of Rhythm and Blues with Hip-hop.
Oh wow, Sess is on something, I mean a whole new level. The beat was well made and mixed, a lot of deliberate thought was put into the song. The rhythm of the song is lovely.

Bottom Line
 

Music Activism at its finest, the message was clear, we do hope Falz's voice reaches us and we are just not listening to the lovely music he is p[roducing. He has made it clear that entertainment is the by-product.

    Falz needs to change his name from “Falz The Bahd Guy” to “Falz The Amazing Guy” cos he did an amazing job. I could feel the presence of Fela through the song. It is only right to say this; “Falz never disappoints.” He has proven over time that he is a act knows or is fully aware of his craft and his environment. Falz always brings lyrical depth to the table whenever he releases a single or body of work. He addresses Human rights, Moral Conducts, the way religion has been used to manipulate people and so on. Sess is a “Beast”. He blended R&B and HipHop with Afrobeat. Demmie Vee’s vocals were sincere and filled with emotions. You could feel his pain through the song. The song had melody and a story which you could never forget.
