I am not running anywhere
In that song, Falz called out INEC on their inconsistencies. He didn’t end there, he also went on to call out political parties which he tagged ‘corrupt’.
Seeing that he is a people person and is loved by many young people, his song created waves all over Nigeria. Many young people supported his view and were glad that someone influential could finally speak their minds.
In the interview with Arise TV, Falz shared:
“It is not to say that I’m running anywhere. Absolutely not. Everyone knows where to find me. If anyone wants to find me. But I have no reason to fear anything. And I always say this when people ask me ‘how do you do these things without any fear of consequences?”
“And this is the same answer that I always give: the kind of life we are living already is one which we are more or less fading away already. It’s not a meaningful life what we have in Nigeria as a country.”
“What’s the worst that could happen? It’s death. I don’t fear death. I would rather go down fighting for a just cause. I would rather be remembered as someone that lived a life that was meaningful rather than someone that for example was walking down the road and got run over by a danfo [bus] because he was driving recklessly.”
