The largest black nation on earth, Nigeria, has just completed its presidential, governorship, national assembly, and state assembly elections, but the citizens are not happy about the hasty electoral malpractice, violence, and lack of transparency. Several local and international observers, as well as well-meaning Nigerians, have denounced the way INEC Chairman Prof. Mahmood Yabuku conducted the election. Many people also believe that this election was the worst in democratic Nigerian history. To that end, well-known Nigerian rappers Falz and Vector have chosen to use their newest song, “Yakubu,” which is named after INEC Chairman, to discuss their opinions on the election.
Falz and Vector symbolize angry Nigerians on the new song “Yakubu,” who feel perpetually persecuted and deprived of their fundamental rights. With lyrics such as: “Mr Yakubu! Ę ma ń se bi fraudster, you don’t want to prosper, come and collect, oscar 300 billion te gbà lówó ìjoba, kí le fi se ná sir,” Falz didn’t hold back, the rapper calls out the INEC, INEC Chairman, and corrupt political parties allegedly involved in the electoral malpractices. Vector had some critical points to buttress as well, the rapper had a lot to say about the electoral process, the court jurisdiction and of course, the INEC Chairman, Prof. Mahmood Yabuku.
‘Yabuku’ serves as Falz’s second official single for 2023 and is a follow-up to the previously released ‘Owa’ featuring Tekno. As regards production credit, Chillz has it to claim. The video on the other hand was co-directed by Oyetwopointo and Falz.
