Falz Gives Reason For Calling Out INEC Chairman, Mahood Yakubu





Nigerian rapper, Folarin Falana, better known as Falz, has opened up on why he called out the Chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), Mahmood Yabuku, in his new song.

Naija News recalls that Falz and his colleague Vector, dropped a new single last week, titled ‘Mr Yakubu and it got everyone talking online.

The singers in the new song insinuated that Mahmood exhibited fraudulent behaviours during the just concluded general election.

In the lyrics of the song, Falz, and Vector also captured some of the excuses the electoral umpire gave on reasons the presidential election results were not uploaded in real-time on its portal.

Some irregularities on the part of security operatives during the election were also acted out in the music video.

In a recent interview with Arise TV, Falz said the song is based on his truth about the elections and they are not fabricating facts.

The singer recalled the violence that marred the 2023 election and how ballot boxes were scattered at polling units.

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

“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.

“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.”
