A Review Of “Moral Instruction”: The “Serious” Falz Needs Some More Work
Hate it or love it, shame or not, Falz has been the best Nigerian rapper for at least the last three years. If you look past the humourous Yoruba accent, he has on a consistent basis dropped some very tight lines and showcased an effortless versatility that has stretched all the way into the French language. The major takeaway from 27, his last studio album was that he can be many other things apart from a “hip hop Yoruba boy”.The Fela samples on the Moral Instruction tracklist right after the buzzing pre-album single, Talk suggested this album was going to be on the socio-conscious path and it turned out so.

Falz gets a thumbs up for his excellent narrative skills and cognizant effort to pass messages through his songs but that is really just as far as it goes.

Some unnecessary Fela comparisons were started online after Talk dropped and with the omniscient presence of Abami Eda on the album, it’s starting to appear the whole thing was arranged by Falz himself.

On this album, we see an artiste trying too hard to exert himself on some Fela sounds.

Detty December: Cleaning Up Our Acts In 2019

I was so pleased to see quite a few Nigerian artists put up their own shows (even if in name only) last December. I have made a lot of noise about this for years now and though I don’t understand why it has taken so long to get here, still, it’s better late than never. With the present momentum, I fully expect that we’ll have at least twice the number of shows that held last December, at the end of this year, and I’m so fucking excited!

Whether you were able to partake of one or more of the many shows last December or just followed updates on social media, It was clear that most of the events were not without major hiccups. And all the usual suspects made an appearance including the perennial, seemingly genetically-influenced inability of our artistes and show organizers to keep to time, inadequate and ineffective security giving rise to robbery and sexual harassment, and of course mediocre sets resulting from little or no planning. Like we say over here, it’s in our blood. But is it really in our blood? If it is in our blood how come Johnny Drille held a show that started and ended on time? How come I heard only good reviews from the fans who attended Adekunle Gold’s residency?

Shows and performances are a critical part of an artist’s career with huge potentials for direct revenue and brand building that is still very much under-appreciated in our industry. And to deliver better experiences for concert goers and fans in the new year, artists and promoters must fully understand that they are responsible for the welfare and enjoyment of their paying fans right from the time they step into the event venue to the moment they leave; and must act accordingly. So, here are some areas where significant improvements can be made with huge ROI.

Plan your set!
It doesn’t matter how many “I love my fans” tweets you put up if you don’t take time to properly plan and rehearse your set you neither love nor respect your fans and that’s sad. You must know beforehand how many songs you plan to perform and have a predetermined sequence for performing them and this information should be known to your band and DJ as well. Every interlude, every pause, every monologue, every song, every opening act’s performance, every lighting manoeuvre, every damn move, as much as possible, should be properly choreographed in advance. This is how you “kill the show” not by merely showing up and miming to your songs in fits and starts.

This Young Mother Did A Semi-Nude Photoshoot On A Street To Prove A Point

One African-American mother is tired of people treating breastfeeding like an anomaly when in reality it is a very normal and natural part of life.

 

The woman with Instagram handle @scapperella took to the middle of a road to do a photoshoot of hersemi clad in a swimwear while nurturing her baby.

Sharing the photos on her Instagram she wrote,

The naturalness of breastfeeding in so many positions only a mama could know.
The attitude of unshamefulness as my baby is being nourished, held, snug & secure.
The power of not giving a flying fuck of the opinions of others, only being a mother & who I am simultaneously.
Smack dab in the middle of American society, I continue to embody traditions that wont be shooketh by western ways.
Unfuckwitable, the nipple is freed with expressing & desexualizing my feminine form.
I am a wombman.
Deservant of respect.
Hiding your feminine power, shaming breastfeeding & making the wombman feel low about the expression of their vessel is what they want.
No giving in.
Hide my femininity for your comfort? Psh it was never about you.
SN: this photo was taken at the beach after being harassed by the cops and threatening to call back up because a “black woman” was breastfeeding in the open. Coincidence? HELL NO.
Art was never meant to be overstood (understood?) with the logical mind. Art is to be felt with an open mind & heart.
