Popular Nigerian rapper Falz, is standing by his philosophy, especially in the area of prostitution
The artist who is also known to be a lawyer, has laid so much emphasis on topic prostitution, which is ravaging amongst youths.
With the release of the lead single from his recently released Moral Instruction album, ‘Talk’, there was a re-awakening of criticisms towards the lawyer turned rapper over his continuous stand regarding prostitution or slut shaming.
The level of his interest in the prostitution topic, has made social media users to pointed to his lyrics, ”Instead make you work, you dey find Alhaji, You come turn your body to cash and carry” and called out Falz for his obsession with ladies who have made a choice with what to do with their bodies.
Falz’s response to the reaction of these people was that he is standing by his words that he detests transactional sex and will continue to speak out against it in his songs.
”Shamelessly I will continue to say it. I detest transactional sex. It is my thing, that is what I believe in and you will continue to hear it in my music.”
Explaining further, he said, ”The same feminist that will say the woman is free to do what she likes, that who am I to tell women not to put herself up for money 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 commoditation, 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.”
While going further to defend himself saying, ”On ‘Regards To Your Mumsi’ ft Ajebutter, we seriously mocked the men who patronize them but we all know that the epidemic is more popular with the women.”
Falz officially released his fourth studio album, ‘Moral Instruction’ on Tuesday, January 15, 2019.
