Falz remains one of the best things to happen to Africa’s hip-hop community in recent times. Not only does he make chart-topping hits, he’s also a proven lyricist, who has mastered the art over the years.
With his comic flows, he’s successfully carved a niche for himself in the over-saturated market. Moreover, he barely sings, you only find him rapping on some Afrobeat, or some hip hop beat by Sess.
With that mainstream acceptance, songs like “Bahd Baddo Baddest”. “Soldier”, “Wehdone Sir” and “Karishika” have become big nationwide hits. Falz, who owns the Bahd Guys imprint, has also dropped a couple projects, including “Stories That Touch” and last year’s surprise album, “27”.
Come to think of it, though, Falz hasn’t dropped any album in 2018. But he already seems to be owning the year in hip hop. All thanks to his satiric “This Is Nigeria” single. And you know the rest.
But, it seems like the 27-year-old rapper ain’t done with the “27” LP yet. Singles like “La Fête”, “Jeje”, “Something Light” featuring Ycee and “Way” featuring Wandecoal, have come out from the album. He recently shared the Visuals to “Next”, the 15th single off the LP. The song features Maleek Berry and Ghanaian rapper, Medikal.
The Video, is a stellar one, to say the least. From the costumes and the location, you’ll know it’s a high-budget video. Falz is definitely going to promote this one.
Meanwhile, his Video to “This Is Nigeria” also recently passed the 7million mark, leaving Falz with another big record, as one of the most-watched rap videos of 2018. Second only to Olamide’s “Science Student”. Who knows what may happen in the coming weeks?
