Femi Falana proud of Falz – Rapper Falz has earned the praise of his father, popular lawyer Femi Falana, after the premiere for his Soldier video.
The video, which has a military theme in line with the lyrics, drew special praise from the Senior Advocate of Nigeria, who didn’t seem to mind too much that his son had left the lawyer profession for music.
“I’m delighted to watch you,” Falana was quoted as saying at the video’s premiere. “I sent you to school to study law, and I thought you’ll be a fantastic lawyer. However, I have no regrets that you’re doing well for yourself. I’ve spent my life fighting the brutalisation of the military, and I’m glad that this video also has the same theme. I’ll consult with your mom tonight so we can chip in some support for you.”
The 14-minute video was directed by Clarence Peters, and stars Simi, Efa Iwara, and others.
