Nigerian Singer Falz Says Artistes Don’t Care About Lyrics Because Nigerians Just Want to Dance

Nigerian Singer Falz 'thebahdt' guy has said Nigerian artistes are not to blame for the poor lyrical content of their songs.

According to Falz, “Nigerians just want to dance” and as such, artistes will feed them with what they desire.

He said this after Some music enthusiasts on Wednesday in Lagos advised contemporary musicians to be creative and focus on issues of socio-economic importance.

“Music of today truly lacks content, but it is hardly the fault of the musician, as Nigerians just want to dance.

“It is correct to say that a lot of artistes are not concerned about lyrical content because they know that the Nigerian people just want to dance.

“However, a few musicians still pay attention to lyrical content. I personally pay a lot of attention to that.

“Music shouldn’t be about the beats alone. Good music is a good blend of everything – good beat, good message and nice melody."
