One of the reasons Afrobeat king, Fela Anikulapo Kuti, would continue to remain evergreen in the hearts of Nigerians was his boldness to call a spade a spade especially in a heated military administration, but Falz is gradually stealing the show with his singing style and lyrics too.
Falz The Badt Guy, originally known as Folarin Falana and son of radical lawyer, Femi Falana, has thrilled music lovers with his new single, Talk, so much so is the timeliness of the song in an election-soaked atmosphere.
The lyrics of the song explains why Nigerians on social media have singled him out as the next closest thing to Fela.
Watch the video:
Fela sang about Buhari's Fraudulence & Failures in 1985, 34years later Falz is reminding Nigerians of the Failures of the same man. Different Musicians, 34 years in between, same message.

"4 years tenure, 3 years holiday"
"We buy your story but you no give us change"
"In 2019, 19,800 alawee"
"3 private jets you say you buy am for church"
Look at Falz speaking for the people, and addressing issues in the country. Fela would’ve been so proud of him ✊🏾 pic.twitter.com/TUkGNOAIAV

You see what Falz is doing with his music? Speaking for the people, addressing issues in the country.
But the other guys think being Fela is about going topless and smoking cheap weed
