Intertwined destinies: Falz–Fela:
•PMB jailed Fela in 1983 & also happens to be the incumbent president
•Femi Falana became Fela's lead lawyer
•Lemi Ghariokwu who provided cover images for Fela designed the cover art of Falz's "Moral Instruction" @falzthebahdguy

Somehow, the discussion became about transactional sex
Falz is obsessed with runs girls. It’s a fact.
If he wants to drag transactional sex in his songs, he should condemn ALL the parties involved. Also, he can’t have lyrics like “baby let me be your customer…”
Let’s be logical, please.

Falz has made it his business to address issues that negatively impact all Nigerians. But, I wonder, why does he feel the need to comment so often and so vehemently on, of all things, the private sexual activity of consenting adult women? #ReadTimehin https://t.co/PsCdewKUOz

Falz says he hates transactional sex, but isn’t ‘Something Light’ about a girl that didn’t want to sleep with him even though he took her out and bought food for her? Isn’t that transactional??

1. How is transactional sex “wrong” ?
2. How are you calling out just the service provider and not the customers ?
4. You somehow left out all the male sex workers in the country ?
5. How do you equate a 2 way business with yahoo yahoo(fraud)
Y’all and Falz are fully dumb

It's pretty alarming that of all the things talked about on falz's moral instruction, the one that people are talking about the most is that of transactional sex when there are other more important things

Falz dropped a WHOLE album addressing the things destroying Nigeria from poverty to evil politicians to the exploitation of masses to lack of education.
So sad that it's all been narrowed to a debate on what he deems as transactional sex.
Expected but disappointing.

Falz said if you're engaging in a transactional sex, you're a prostitute. okay let's say falz is wrong, if you're engaging in transactional sex, what are you?, pastor?, doctor?, nurse? accountant?, architect? pilot?. Please what are you as a boy or girl if not a prostitute?

Sex workers are angry about Falz transactional sex talk.
Catch them young 👌

Re: The Gold Wedding
Last week, we heard that popular Nigerian artistes Adekunle Gold and Simi got hitched at a private ceremony in Lagos. This week, after neither confirming their nuptials, the couple released a new video titled Promise. I dare you to watch the video without feeling mushy.

Adekunle Gold and Simi are actually funny😂 Instead of sharing their wedding pictures they gave us music video about two people in love getting married, & they were the lead characters😒
— Osato🎀 (@satooO_o) January 16, 2019
Adekunle Gold and Simi are very selfish… They only care about themselves
— Xhaka Laca Boom (@Mayoral_OP) January 17, 2019
I just listened to #Promise by Adekunle Gold and Simi. Those two have the kind of musical chemistry that's hard to topple. Glad they are gonna have to spend the rest of their lives together too.

What if the whole Adekunle Gold and Simi's wedding was just a video shoot for this their new song and nothing more ?
