Falz, has opened up on why Nigerian artistes prefer songs with poor lyrical content.
The rapper explained that artistes should not be blamed for the poor lyrical content of their songs, noting that it is due to the fact that “Nigerians just want to dance” hence, artistes are compelled to feed them with what they want.
This is coming on the heels of complaints by some entertainment stakeholders and veterans that the lyrics of most contemporary musicians are often centered on money, women, and alcohol.
The music enthusiasts advised artistes to be more creative and focus on issues of socio-economic importance which will engender positive change in the society.
Reacting to this, Falz said although it is true that content is hard to come by in the music of today, but the artistes who churn out music of that type are not to be blamed.
“Music of today truly lacks content, but it is hardly the fault of the musician, as Nigerians just want to dance.
“It is correct to say that a lot of artistes are not concerned about lyrical content because they know that the Nigerian people just want to dance. However, a few musicians still pay attention to lyrical content. I personally pay a lot of attention to that.
“Music shouldn’t be about the beats alone. Good music is a good blend of everything – good beat, good message and nice melody,” he said.
