The year 2018 was a good one for Falz following his controversial “This is Nigeria” parody video. In the early hours of January 22, 2019, he released his fourth studio album, MORAL INSTRUCTION. Since then moral instruction is more than an album, it’s a movement, a re-orientation and a re-education. It has helped a lot of us to learn and unlearn most common ideologies.
Obviously, we as African have lost our land all in the name of foreign investments and loans. Every day we complain about the state of affairs but do nothing about it. All we need is re-education.
Falz said, “We all have one thing or two to learn”.
His new album contained nine songs and Moral instruction has been the most talked about. He also sampled three of Fela’s songs on the album.
He said, “it was a lot deciding whether to do the samples but I wanted the elements of the original Afrobeat, that was one of the main reasons I wanted us to sample and it was a lot of ‘wahala’ to clear the samples. We had to talk to his estate, talk to different companies in France and another in the US that held the right to his Masters, I was this close to giving it all up but then I thought again, for what I want to achieve, I had to go ahead with it”.
Before the release of the album, he held a private listening session where he gathered artists, journalist, and friends to discuss and share the creation process of the album. Before proceeding to launch the album, he said a lot of artists stay away from creating contents but in order to have a change in affairs, we have to be bold and brave.
