Barrister Femi Falana (SAN), father of sensational comic rapper, Folarin Falana, alias Falz, the Bahd Guy, was one of the guests during the premiere of an extended music video titled “Soldier” by Falz and Simi.
The legal luminary, who had been somewhat distant about his son’s musical diversion, finally gave his nod of approval to the chosen career of his only child as well as promising to support him regardless of his love for the Law profession.
“I thought he would make a fantastic lawyer,” he commenced in a speech after the screening of the musical video. “That was what his mother and I sent him to school to study. But our people say that if a masquerade dances well, he is asked to dance again. You have danced well tonight and I will discuss with your mother on how to support you,” he ended as applause rent the air from the audience.
An excited Falz also listened to his human activist dad review the first ever expanded musical video in Nigeria, commenting on the role of music in checking the spurious activities of the military towards protecting civil right liberty of the girl child.
The Clearance Peter’s directed musical video has been regarded as the first short musical movie to be shot by a Nigerian. Falz, reacting to questions from the audience, renewed his intent to change the game once more.
