Sensational rapper Falz has spoken on using his latest single 'Yakubu' and how he feels about the conduct of the 2023 general elections.
'Yakubu' is an obvious parody of the events that took place during the poll with an emphasis on INEC Chairman Mahmood Yakubu's alleged complicity in the unexpected turn of events.
In a recent appearance on Arise TV, Falz (real name Folarin Falana) disclosed that the video for the track mirrors the events that transpired during the elections.
"As you said, pretty much an account of events as they transpired in the last couple of months, you know, with the entire episode. With the elections and everything as they've played out.
"That's pretty much what it is; it's self-explanatory, you know. If you listen to the record, you follow the story from beginning to end if you weren't present when it all these were happening...
"You will be able to, just by listening and watching this video, to have a clear or brief summary of events as they transpired.
"And that's what we were trying to achieve with the record", he stated.
Speaking of his displeasure with the general conduct of the elections, the rapper stated that the rules and regulations that were supposed to guide the process were not applied.
"To say the least, the rules and regulations that were supposed to guide these elections were not applied.
"Quite simply, the INEC Chairman himself, prior to elections, had come out and released these regulations and said you know, this is the way we're going to run these elections.
"And then by the time that these elections were then happening, suddenly, you know, we're seeing this process that is so not transparent and exactly the opposite of what you said it was going to be...", Falz added.
'Mr. Yakubu' mirrors the account of events that transpired in the last election, the rules and regulations meant to guide this election were jettisoned by even the INEC Chairman, the lack of transparency was glaring and the belief that there was some foul play involved - Falz pic.twitter.com/5s5saw1gHB— ARISE NEWS (@ARISEtv) April 4, 2023
