Falz dropped his brand new album, Moral Instruction earlier this week and it has resulted into alot of reactions from fans, some like the fact that Falz is speaking out while some feel Falz is putting himself into a mess by trolling the government. Some Nigerian celebrities have applauded Falz for a job well done. Funke Akindele has as well reacted to Falz new Album.
She posted on her Instagram page, she wrote: “Hi!!! Pls Take 25mins of your time today to listen to this Masterpiece #MoralInstruction by @falzthebahdguy. Don’t just listen for listening sake, deliberately try to pick out the messages (not just one line ) embedded in each song and see what changes you can make to either your life, community or Nigeria as a whole. Nigeria and Nigerians need restructuring and reorientation. One step at a time we would get there but let’s take that first step NOW. #MoralInstructionTheAlbum #AvailableEverywhere #ChangeAgent #Bahdguys”
As the title implies, the new record follows the rapper as he tackles several topics dealing with Nigeria’s social ills and issues with political & social awareness throughout its nine tracks. The album notably samples Fela Kuti, who was undoubtedly outspoken about similar issues himself, in some of its standout songs.
“Johnny” flips Fela’s “J.J.D. (Johnny Just Drop),” “Follow Follow” samples the afrobeat king’s scathing attack on the Nigerian military “Zombie,” “Amen” features elements from the hit “Coffin For Head of State” and “E No Finish” interpolates “Army Arrangement.”
Additionally, the cover art for Moral Instruction was crafted by Nigerian artist and longtime Fela collaborator Lemi Ghariokwu—the man behind many of Fela Kuti’s iconic covers.
Falz had just recently dropped the music video for the album’s single, “Talk,” which deals issues like greedy politicians, an ineffective president, and Nigerian’s penchant for conspicuous consumption.
