Nigerian entertainer Falz, born Folarin Falana is wrapping up a great year with a concert that will shake Nigeria to its roots. The multi-talented lawyer-turned-rapper has announced he’s planning to host a 7-hour live concert that will reach at least 100 million fans real time.
Titled The Falz Experience, the December 20 big-budget concert will have 7,000 fans inside one venue, while millions of others watch live on cable television and on the Internet.
It is the first time the rapidly-rising performer – who is the son of respected lawyer Femi Falana (SAN) – is stepping out for his own exclusive concert.
Speaking on the event, Falz expressed his excitement towards the incoming event: “Some people are used to seeing my comedy skits on social media. Others are familiar with my music, while those from way back know me as a lawyer. There are those who are familiar with my multiple personalities and career. The idea behind The Falz Experience is to bring all of these together, for the benefit of all my fans. It’s a music concert that will incorporate different elements of my art, with support from the many colleagues I have collaborated with”.
Planned as a full multi-media event, the rapper says fans should expect a concert of a lifetime. The Falz Experience will hold at Eko Convention Centre, Victoria Island, Lagos, with support from friends of the artiste including Simi, YCee amongst others.
