What if I told you @falzthebahdguy has MPD? – The different shades of Folarin Falana

bad guy

Psychology folks and lovers of a couple of American TV series like @TheMentalist would be familiar with the Multiple Personality Disorder. And even as I usually thought it was only an “Oyinbo” thing, every thought of @falzthebahdguy reminds me of what I see in some of such movies.

Actor, comedian, musician, compere, and a lawyer!? It is definitely amazing to see this guy combine all these acts in just one body. Born to the family one of Nigeria’s foremost lawyer and activist – Femi Falana, no one would have imagined Folarin turning out to be what we see today. I am not a big fan of Nigerian acts and my first time of watching falz was his skit with Funke Akindele. I was disappointed largely due to the fact that I saw him as trying to be a female version of @funkeakindele. This view only lasted for a short while after listening to his “ello bae” skits and his songs with @SymplySimi and @yemialadee.

I can only refer to falz as a complete entertainer especially as he refuses to admit that he is a comedian which kinda underlines my view of him having MPD. His diverse talent might stem from the fact that he grew up in different places across the globe from attending St. Leo’s Catholic Primary School in Ikeja to Olashore International School in Osun and eventually traveling to the UK where he studied Law in the University of Reading and subsequently qualifying as a Barrister after attending the Nigerian Law School, Abuja, falz has been able to walk the walk and he is definitely making good use of his experience and escapades as he continues to smile to the bank.

Falz has an alter ego named Brother Taju, a somewhat feature of persons suffering from MPD. Falz brands his kind of music Wazup music, which is not surprising. Falz is one of the very few Nigerian artistes that still sing some sense and his #Storiesthattouch album substantiates this fact. In actual fact, the songs in the album can be a bit addictive and persons that have been able to get their copies can testify to this claim.

Musician, Actor, Comedian, Compere, Lawyer, Brand Ambassador, and the list goes on. One thing we can be sure of is that @falzthebahdguy is a talent and we can expect even more from this unique zombody.

What a year! 2015 in review

The year,  2015 has been one full of ups and downs especially for those of us in this part of the world. Regardless of the side of the fence we are,  the grace of the Almighty must always be appreciated. In the same vein, my first blog post after about two years of absence would solely be to appreciate the Almighty for His grace and mercies on Nigeria and the world in general.
From the anxiety, euphoria, and fears of the elections that resulted in the unprecedented coming to power of the opposition – President Muhammed Busari also known as PMB,  to the continued evil works of the Book boys,  the most recent resurrection of the Biafran agitation,  and other such happenings that have threatened the peaceful existence of our country Nigeria,  one can happily say that the year 2015 is coming to an end and we can only pray for a better, more peaceful and more prosperous 2016. This is not forgetting the agony of ordinary Nigerians stemming from the seemingly unending queues at gas stations across the country and the Chibok girls that remain “unfound” even with the continued promise of our military forces to return them in one piece to their families.
As we welcome the New Year,  let us pray for a better Nigeria and even more importantly,  work towards achieving the positive change we all desire.
