Falz Reveals How His Musical Career Worked

 

Folarin Falana, the Nigerian entertainer famously known as Falz, says he found success when he started to “showcase rascality” on the internet.

The singer said although he had started making music since 2009, he did not find his big break until 2015.

Falz, who recently released his “Moral Instruction” album, said it was “quite tough” to break into the music industry.

“I don’t even think it was one song. I think it was a period of time with quite a few things going on around that time,” he said during a sit-down with Teni on Flytime Promotion’s ‘The Journey’.

“It was quite tough, it’s never easy. I’ve been pushing music since 2009.

“Not until maybe like 2015 (before the big break). At the same time I was in the university. I finished in 2010. It was a period of time when I began to showcase rascality on the internet.

“At that time, the song that was popular for me was ‘Marry Me’ featuring Yemi Alade and Poe. At the same time, I was becoming a well known rascal on the internet. That attracted a lot of people to me.”

Speaking about his relationship status, Falz said he has not had a girlfriend for a long time. The entertainer also said he does not actively entertain thoughts of marriage.

“I don’t really think about marriage like that but I have liked girls,” he said.

Nigeria stands still for BBNaija auditions

Nigeria stands still for BBNaija auditions

AUDITIONS for the fourth edition of Big Brother Naija which held over the weekend in eight different cities experienced a huge turnout.

Thousands of young people flooded the venues with hopes of being chosen as housemates in the Big Brother Naija House competing for the ultimate prize.

And while other venues like Abuja, Benin, Calabar, Enugu, Ibadan, Port Harcourt, and Warri had a manageable crowd, that of Lagos was off the roof with estimated figures of attendees put at 6, 000 on Friday, the first day of the audition.

The remaining seven venues hosted about 13,000 participants. Many have compared the audition crowd to typical carnivals and other religious concerts.

In Lagos, a BBN hopeful, Thompson Alade, proposed to another hopeful,  Jessica Arowolo, to marry him.

Interestingly, Thompson met her at the audition. There were shouts of jubilation as fellow contestants took pictures and videos of the proposal. Jessica who hopes to get into the Big Brother Naija house so she can showcase her business to the world is a cosmetologist who produces skin care products while Thompson is an aspiring musician.

According to a release from representatives of the organizers, MultiChoice Nigeria anticipated the turnout and arranged private security men, police officers and LASTMA officials, who were on ground to coordinate vehicular traffic and medical personnel were also present to manage any issues that may arise.

However, the situation on ground proved to be different at the Lagos audition centre, D Podium Event Centre, Ikeja, on Friday.

A participant, Adeniyi Adewoyin, arrived at the venue as early by 5am but it was not till about 6pm he auditioned. He noted that aside pushing and shoving, people were scaling fences to get entrance into the venue, adding that some miscreants also used the commotion to rob others. He also said people sustained injuries in the process.

“I saw two girls who was injured,” he said.

“The whole place was just crazy. And it would have been better if the organisers had prepared for it. I didn’t see any ambulance.”

This is similar to what another attendee posted on Facebook.

Signing the post as Ivan The Terrible, the writer talked of how the crowd was uncontrollable and people resorted to pushing and shoving with several people being trampled on in ensuing melee. The writer also narrated how she saved a participant by rushing him to Lagoon Hospital, also in Ikeja.

“A guy was lying on the side of the road in just underpants matted in wet sand, filth and an oddly angled right arm,” she wrote.

“He was frothing from his mouth in near throes of death and breathing laboriously.

Audition contestants were standing around gisting and laughing–paying no heed to the dying guy lying right before them.”

According to her, she gathered that: “(1) He had fallen from the high fence while trying to scale, dislocated his right arm and had a near fatal seizure. (2) He had immediately been so trampled by a horde of boots against the broken metal barricade; that his entire clothes had been torn beyond recognition–and so they had to be peeled off his body and stacked in a messy heap close-by while his near-lifeless body was  dragged across the road and deposited beside the gutter. (3) His both I-phones had been stolen, plus his wallet, credit cards, international passport with Dublin and Canada Visas.”

She also said that while she was at the hospital, she learnt others were affected in the melee.

Di’Ja exposes a societal dysfunction that is failing Nigerian kids

Di’Ja exposes a societal dysfunction that is failing Nigerian kids

The protection of children has become a contemporary issue in Nigeria from where Mavin Records singer Di’Ja is bringing attention to the age of consent subject.

On Sunday, February 3, 2019, she puts up a piece from a research that confirms 11, to be the accepted legal age to attain before an individual can give approval for sexual activity.

When this has been violated, that is, when sexual interaction between an older person and a child who is 10 years old and below has taken place, only then is it statutory rape according to the law.

Di’Ja is concerned about this because it could mean harming the future. New trends have overtaken old values making them totally obsolete but Nigeria seems to be lagging behind farther than most.

Currently, it is rated as the nation with the lowest age of consent bracket in the world set at 11. In the Middle Eastern Kingdom of Bahrain, the age of consent is 21 — almost double the number in Nigeria.

“This isn’t a fight against religion, tribe, gender but a redirection of our energies and thought processes to protect the ones that birth your nation.

“If children become psychologically, physically and emotionally damaged before a certain age all you will have are adults with suppressed memories of abuse, which lead to psychological mind ware-fare,” the singer counsels from her IG.

Marriage without consent

Child marriage can also be concerning. The move to marry an older man is not likely a decision a 15-year-old girl will be so eager to make.

In Anambra State, a girl of this age named Chinwe was the topic of a social media campaign #RetrieveChinwe started to deliver her from an arranged marriage her family supported.

It was to be a union between her and a 56-year-old Izuchukwu Igwilo, who reportedly has Down Syndrome.

The distasteful thought of such marriage ensured the intervention of a Nigerian Lawyer and human rights activist, Prince Gwamnishu Emefiele Harrison who was able to fulfill a vow to save young Chinwe from a marriage she gave no consent to.

Pulse has analysed that there is a conflicting interpretation when it concerns the principles that have been laid down to determine legitimate marriages. It is a job for legislators making sure that the Nigerian laws are able to reflect the ideals of humanity.
