I’m Tired Of Feeling Helpless ~ Falz
Folarin Falana, popularly known as Falz, has joined well meaning Nigerians in lamenting over the heightened state of insecurity in the country.
The rapper, in a post shared on Instagram, said that he was tired of feeling sad, helpless and ashamed.
His post read, “At what point does this shit become too ridiculous?
“I’m really tired of feeling sad, ashamed and helpless.”
Falz made this known as he shared tweets from President Muhammadu Buhari condemning the terrorists attack on Kuje correctional facility.
Buhari, while assessing the extent of damage during his visit to Kuje prison after the attack, expressed disappointment over the intelligence system.
The President added that cancelling his trip to Senegal at the time will mean the terrorists have succeeded, hence his decision to go ahead despite concerns from Nigerians.
Folarin Falana (born 27 October 1990), better known by his stage name Falz, is a Nigerian rapper, songwriter and actor who began his career while in secondary school after forming a group called “The School Boys” with his friend before his professional career as a music artist began in 2009. Falz became more well-known after releasing the song “Marry Me” featuring vocals from Poe and Yemi Alade.
In October 2020, Falz called on Runtown and other Nigerian celebrities to join the #EndSARS protests in Lagos, South West Nigeria, calling on the government to end police brutality. The singer is vocal about issues bordering on social justice across the country. Paying tribute to the victims of police brutality, he released a music video for “Johnny”, the first single off his last album, Moral Instruction. He wrote in a post introducing the song, “We will never forget the heroes that have been unlawfully slain. This is for them. For every single Nigerian life snatched away unlawfully, we must make sure we get justice.” “Almost two years since I released the audio. Even more disturbing to think that as time passed, the message became more relevant.”
In an interview with CNN’s Christiane Amanpour, in 2020, Falz said President Buhari’s promise to reform the Nigerian police was infuriating and fraustrating as he claimed Buhari has been making same promise since 2017.
