Rapper and social crusader, Folarin Falan popularly known as Falz, has declared that he is not afraid of dying.

The music star said this in an interview with CNN’s Christiane Amanpour, while answering questions bothering on police brutality in Nigeria that gave birth to the EndSARS campaign.

During the interview, Falz gave a breakdown of what has been happening in the country from the first day Nigerian youths decided to come out and protest against police brutality.

He also said Buhari’s promise to reform the police was infuriating and frustrating as his administration had been making the same promise of reform since 2017.

The ‘This is Nigeria’ crooner added that it is disheartening that the Nigerian government is dragging its feet in
implementing some of the reforms it claims it’s leading.

When asked if he was afraid for his life, Falz boldly stated, “I’m not afraid for my safety, I’m not afraid for my life because where we are right now, I feel like I could easily die by anything else anyways.”

He continued: “We have none existent healthcare for example, we have a seriously high level of poverty, there’s unemployment. We’re in a critical state because of how much corruption and just mismanagement of funds that we continue to see on a daily basis. So if I don’t come out to sort of complain about the state of things, I could sit down and you know I could have an accident on my way to work or something… What kind of life am I living anyway?”

Falz has been vocal on issues bordering on social injustice across the country especially the recent campagin against police brutality known as #EndSARS.
