Falz, the rapper, has claimed Babajide Sanwo-Olu, the governor of Lagos state, was not re-elected by the masses.


Sanwo-Olu was declared the winner of the March 18 governorship election by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).

He secured a second term as governor of Lagos after polling 762,134 votes to win the election.

Gbadebo Rhodes-Vivour of the Labour Party (LP) came second with 312,329 votes, while Olajide ‘Jandor’ Adediran of the PDP trailed in third place with 62,449 votes.


In an appreciation post on Twitter, the governor thanked Lagosians for his re-election.

He also promised to continue to make the state better.

“Thank you Lagosians! I am deeply humbled and grateful for the overwhelming support and trust of the good people of Lagos State,” he said.


“I am honored to be re-elected as your Governor and pledge to continue to work tirelessly to deliver a better Lagos for all.”

In his reaction, Falz argued that Sanwo-Olu wasn’t re-elected but selected himself.

“You were not re-elected. You selected yourself. Everybody saw it unfold. You are only deceiving yourselves,” he wrote.

On Saturday, INEC concluded the last phase of the 2023 general election with the governorship and state assembly polls.

There were, however, reports of attack, intimidation and violence during the election.


Falz earlier alleged that the Arise TV crew was attacked in the presence of police officers at his polling unit.

The rapper also wondered why electorates would be forced to vote for a candidate who is not their choice.
