Falz’ father, Femi Falana spills: Why my son always embarasses the government
Human rights lawyer, Femi Falana SAN, has made some shocking revelations on how his singer son, Folarin Falana better known as Falz loves embarrassing the government.
While speaking at an event in Lagos on Sunday, April 2, the father of the famous rapper stated that his son is always at loggerheads with the government because of what he was made to experience while growing up.
He said that his frequent arrest as a legal practitioner always bothered his son, who thought he was a criminal.
“One of these guys one day said, ‘Falana talk to your son; he should stop embarrassing the government.
Did I say which government? Do you mean that boy who is an adult? Can I give you his number so you can talk to him? But he was careful because when that boy was growing up. I was being arrested from time to time. So, the only language he understood was detention, arrest, and the rest of them.
One day when that boy was six, he asked his mother, “Our teacher taught us that only criminals were arrested. Is my father a criminal? Why is he always being arrested? And the mother had to say that in Nigeria, under the military, only two sets of political suspects. Politics suspects are those who are out to expose the criminality of the government. That is what you see going on”.
