Why I Called Out INEC Chairman, Yakubu In New Song – Falz


Folarin Falana, the renowned Nigerian rapper, who is also known as Falz, has talked about why he slammed the INEC chairman.

He gave reasons why he called out the Chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, Prof. Mahmood Yabuku in his new song.

He said the song titled ‘Yakubu’ is based on “his truth” about the elections.

The Singer who decried the violence and manipulation that marred the elections said ”INEC’s performance at the just concluded elections was a big mess”.

“There’s absolutely nothing I’m saying on this record or Vector is saying on this record that hasn’t occurred,” he said.

“We are not fabricating facts, we are not making things up, we are not painting a scenario that did not occur.

“We are telling you things as they happened.”

“We went out there, we voted and suddenly, everything was scattered before our very eyes. Absolutely nothing was done about that and even upon all the numerous cases of violence that we witnessed.”
