Folarin ‘Falz’ Falana, a multi-faceted Nigerian entertainer, has released his latest album titled ‘Moral Instruction’.
The socio-conscious album, released on Tuesday, has nine tracks and features guest appearances from Demmie Vee, Chillz and Sess.
During an album listening session on Monday, Falz talked about some of the tracks on ‘Moral Instruction’.
When asked about the criticism of him slut-shaming and objectifying women, the singer said:
“Shamelessly, I will continue to say it. I detest transactional sex. You will continue to hear it whether you like it or not.
“The same feminist that will say the woman is free to do what she likes is the same feminist that will say women are being objectified.
“Now you are that same person that is going ahead to commodify yourself. You have turned yourself into a commodity.
“Self objectification, self commodification, I detest it and I will continue to speak against it.
“Their argument often is that I speak about the runs girls and I don’t talk about the guys. If you are going to talk about a certain epidemic, obviously you are going to use the more popular scenario, the more relatable scenario and that is why I always use the runs girl.”
Falz also revealed that he sampled three of Fela Kuti’s songs on ‘Moral Instruction’.
Speaking on why he ventured into the socio-conscious and socio-political terrain on the album, he said: “There is a dire need for us to redefine the concept of humanity and morality.
“There is a pressing need for re-education and re-orientation of the people. For this is the only way we can restore sanity.”
