Music Activism

Known for comedy-spiced songs such as ‘Soldier’, ‘Ello Bae’, ‘Karashika’ and several others, Falz opened a new phase in his music career when he dropped ‘This is Nigeria’.

Described as music activism, the song criticised Nigerian politicians for their luxury lifestyle in the face of mass suffering, while individuals with questionable sources of income and girls who would rather go after rich men than seek legitimate means of livelihood were also called out.

Criticised by the government of the day, the song was also condemned by religious bodies including the Muslims Rights Concern, (MURIC).

Having established himself as an activist, Falz has since followed up ‘This Is Nigeria’ with other consciousness songs including ‘Talk’, another deep song which x-rays the life of an average Nigerian politician.

It is, however, his sample of Tekno’s ‘Better’, a song that prays for a better Africa that has seen him going full throttle as an activist.

Since the song which highlights some of the recent happenings affecting the nation dropped, it has been commendation for Falz.

Music pundits have since asked for more of such conscious songs from the singer.

Don’t Compete With Stars, Paul Gambit Tells New Acts

Paul Gambit

 

Ace video director, Paul Gambit, has discouraged up and coming artistes from shooting expensive videos.

Confirming the disparity in funds available to both A-list acts and up and coming singers, the director who is known to have shot videos for most of Nigeria’s singing talents advised young artistes to learn to crawl before walking.

“You can shoot a good enough video, you don’t need so much, just be contented with what you have now. There is time to improve. That you have one song does not mean that it is the only single you are going to release; you can keep growing. When you look at the videos year after, it allows you to say that is where I am coming.

“As a baby, you crawl first, and then you learn to stand before you walk. So, what I have found out is that a lot of people want great stuff, but don’t have the budget to get those jobs done. So, what I usually advise most people is to try and agree on a simple concept, don’t try to make a video to compete with someone that is already up there or someone that is part of a big organisation. You need to understand that, and know your level.”
