What Happened To Falz? Why Can’t The Rapper Make A Hit Anymore?

At the end of 2017, I made a list of the top ten rappers who performed that year, and guess who was number one? Falz.

Falz, coming from a stellar year where he released his magnum opus, “Stories That Touch” and a couple of mindblowing singles was the most important person in hip-hop that year. Anyone who mattered then rated the guy even ahead of guys like Olamide and Phyno.

Fast forward to 2021, four eventful years after, where is Falz? The guy’s last hit was “Bop Daddy” which used Ms. Bank‘s momentum to become a tik tok hit and was one of the top songs in Nigeria and the UK last year. But that’s it. Before then, two years before that, he didn’t have a single hit. And it’s not for the lack of trying, I tell you.

He’s tried to jump on every wave with the hopes that luck would shine on him and he would score a big number. Guess luck just hasn’t shone, right? So, how did he become like this? How did one of the biggest and best rappers of the 2010s go back to square one?

I’d like to turn your attention to 2018, the year it all started. Falz decided that it wasn’t enough to make songs that could turn up the club and make people laugh anymore, he decided to go into activism. So what did he do? He started with a satirical “This is Nigeria” which is by far one of Nigeria’s best rap records and made hella waves for it. After that, he channeled his inner Fela and made a socio-politically conscious album, “Moral Instruction.”

While that album generated very positive reviews, it wasn’t the usual Nigerian album, so it went under the radar quickly and fast, with no hits. The only mild hit from the album, “Johnny” was regurgitated during the End SARS protests last year. Let’s just say that was one of Falz’s most underperforming singles of all time. So what happened? How did the “Sweet Boy” rapper start struggling to find his balance? Is this just a phase?
