Falz Is on a Mission to 'Save Nigeria' In the Music Video for 'Talk'

Falz is back with another politically-charged banger.

Nigerian rapper Falz is back with his first music video offering of 2019.

Once again, the "This is Nigeria" rapper tackles various social ills plaguing Nigeria from greedy politicians, and an ineffective president to Nigerian's penchant for conspicuous consumption.

The music video begins with a young boy playing a video game with Falz as his character. The game gives him the options to use his Falz player to "Save Nigeria," "Relocate to Yankee" or "Join Gang." He chooses the first option, sending Falz into the real world where the rapper tries his hand at becoming a judge a politician and more.


The song encourages Nigerians to talk openly about the issues facing the nation and what it takes to change the country for the better. With Nigeria's upcoming elections taking place in February, it's a prime time for critical discussion.

Watch the music video for Falz's "Talk" below.
