Singer Falz Talks About The Misconceptions People Have About Him

Popular Nigerian rapper, Folarin Falana, a.k.a FalzTheBahdGuy, in a chat with Showtime lamented the biggest misconceptions people have about him.

“I have been misinterpreted especially in recent times. To a large extent, I understand the sentiments or the feelings of the people that have misinterpreted me.

The biggest misconception about my person is that I’m a misogynist, that I hate women. I think it’s funny, I think it’s laughable because I have continually spoken against the prostitution culture. It’s just something I don’t subscribe to, but it doesn’t mean I hate women or anything.

Men that do these things too are equally doing something that I don’t like, but maybe it’s because I have only done more stuff about the girls, and I understand that because women are the gender that is oppressed.

There is male supremacy that is perpetrated in every sphere of life and I understand that for this reason, it could be vexing for the listeners. I’ve made a lot of music that speaks about women oppression and sexual abuse; ‘Child of the world’ for example.

That is a very conscious song, it talked about s#xual abuse, suicide and the need for help. On my ‘Moral Instruction’ album, I made a lot of stuff pertaining to human trafficking. I pay a lot of attention to things that affects people; so there is no way someone will sit in their house and say I’m a misogynist”, he lamented.
