Here's why Falz did not address Nigeria's problems in new EP


Nigerian rapper, Falz has revealed that he deliberately chose not to address Nigeria's problems in his recently released EP, Before the Feast.

While in an interview with The Punch, Falz explained that he aimed to create a project that was free from complaints. Hence, he focused on instilling a positive mindset in his listeners rather than talk about Nigeria in his new EP.

However, Falz stated that he intentionally toned down on socio-politically conscious lyrics, instead opting for a diverse range of sounds and themes. Also, he worked with multiple producers to achieve this goal, resulting in a unique and refreshing sound.

Additionally, the rapper expressed his desire to inspire Africans to adopt a new mindset in 2024, one that is free from negativity and complaining. By doing so, Falz hopes to "cleanse the palette" of his listeners and offer a fresh perspective through his music.

In his words, “On this project, I am not doing much of the social or political commentary that I typically do. There are socially conscious lyrics, but not particularly about the affairs of the country. That is intentional as well. I resolved not to complain because the emotion I am trying to convey has to be one that comes without that element of complaining. I want to put the listener in the mindset I feel they should have as African existing in 2024.”

“It was very intentional. What I want to do with the EP is to cleanse the palette of the listener. I aimed to make it as diverse as possible with the sounds. It is interesting that only one producer worked on more than one song on the project. Each song has a new producer, which was not even intentional. That allowed us to achieve a wide range of sounds. So, yes, it was intentional,” He added.
