Falz, the rapper, has explained why he called out the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) in his new song ‘Yakubu’.


Falz aimed a dig at the INEC chairman in the new song released on March 30.

Speaking about the new project in a recent interview on Arise TV, Falz said the song reveals “my truth” about the elections “without fabrication”.

He said his lyrics in ‘Yakubu’ were based on “real events”.


“There’s absolutely nothing I’m saying on this record or Vector is saying on this record that hasn’t occurred,” he said.

“We are not fabricating facts, we are not making things up, we are not painting a scenario that did not occur.

“We are telling you things as they happened.”


Falz also expressed his frustration with the violence and manipulation that allegedly marred the elections, adding that “it was a big mess”.

“We went out there, we voted and suddenly, everything was scattered before our very eyes. Absolutely nothing was done about that and even upon all the numerous cases of violence that we witnessed,” he added.

“Upon all the very shabby-looking manipulated results we saw with our very eyes, the INEC chairman still went on to declare a winner.

“As for the presidential election, in the dead of the night, so it was all just a big mess.”
