Today, Falz is being likened to the progenitor of Afrobeat, Fela Anikulapo Kuti whose music was a weapon of activism. The legendary Fela was a known critic of the government of the day which incidentally Major General Buhari was Head of State at the time. 34 years after Falz speaks as much as Fela against the incumbent which is headed by President Buhari. Some say his content and purpose are in sync with that of the late Afrobeat legend.
