​Folarin Falana better known by his stage name Falz is a Nigerian rapper, actor, and songwriter. He began his career while in secondary school after forming a group called “The School Boys” with his friend before his professional career as a music artiste began in 2009.

Falz shot into limelight after his song titled “Marry Me” (featuring vocals from Poe and Yemi Alade) won him a nomination in the “Best Collaboration of The Year” category at the 2015 Nigeria Entertainment Awards. He was also nominated in the “Best Rap Act of The Year” and “Best New Act to Watch” categories at the same event. He currently owns an independent record label called Bahd Guys Records.

Falz is the son of Femi Falana, a Nigerian human activist and lawyer. He was called to the bar in 2012 after graduating from the Nigeria Law School, Abuja.
Falz describes his style of music as “Wahzup music”. It is the fusion of comic lyrics with the contemporary hip-hop in a faux Yoruba accent. In 2014, Falz was ranked #9 on notJustOk’s list of “The 10 Most Gifted Rappers In Nigeria 2014” stating that, “Falz’s ability to maintain a thought and get his point across in 16 barz while switching accents, infusing funny punchlines and delivering all of it in a way that makes the listener follow along is nothing short of impressive”.
It is no doubt that this successful and talented young artiste is loved by all.
