Multiple award-winning Rapper and Actor Folarin Falana aka FalztheBadGuy and Falz for short, turns 30 amidst the #EndSARS protests events in Nigeria.
The entertainer, lawyer and activist has been at the forefront of the #EndSars protest against #policebrutality in Nigeria. In October 2020, alongside other music artistes, Falz hit the streets and began the EndSARS protests that spread across Nigeria.
Falz has used his music to critique the government in Nigeria and he also uses his social media handles to educate young Nigerians on their rights. His first educational video focused on holding public servants to account. He said, “They are in office to serve us and not the other way round.”
In a tweet, Falz said he is marking his birthday with mixed feelings and he is presently serving as an observer at the Lagos Judicial Panel of Enquiry, alongside journalists and other neutral observers. He also said in a video via his Instagram handle, that his spirit cannot be broken.
