After making a bold statement with the success of the maiden edition of The Falz Experience, multiple award-winning act, Falz recently returned with a sequel for the concert. Tagged “The Falz Experience II”, the 4-hour concert featured performances by Falz and a star-studded supporting cast at the Eko Convention Centre on the 8th of June, 2019.
According to reports, the maiden edition of the concert gulped a whooping sum of N300 million. Hence, the follow-up was speculated by many to deliver more jaw-breaking experiences.
The Falz Experience II delivered jaw-crushing moments that will definitely linger on the minds of attendees for a long long time. As a matter of fact, fans were given an opportunity to suggest ideas that could be integrated into the concert social media using the hashtag #WhatWillFalzDo.
When asked why he decided to take a new direction regarding the concert, Falz replied saying;
The Falz Experience is one of the most open windows into who I am as a performer and entertainer. My fans are a huge part of Falz. They are the driving force of my art, and remain a solid reason why I exist as a musician.
But what exactly did Falz do differently? Don’t fret, I am going to answer that for you…??
It is no longer news that Falz’s third studio album, “Moral Instruction” – drove a lot of social and political conversations on social media and resulted in many drawing conclusions that “art is indeed a tool for societal change”.
For this reason, the rapper created a set list that included tracks such as ‘Hypocrite’ and ‘Talk’, hence offering the audience a 360-experience that featured the best of entertainment, performances, satire and layered education at the concert.
The Sweet Boys Association (SBA) also made a live appearance for the first time. Also joining them on stage were Basketmouth, JJC and IK Osakhioduwa, however, their wives showed up and broke up the party.
LOL! You should have seen the expressions on their faces when their wives showed up on stage…???
Sola Sobowale, also threw in some drama, breaking up a strip-tease performance. Falz also ran the entire spectrum of his personality and talents, fusing his music with comedy and the best character acting.
However, a huge crossover was the appearance of Falz’s character from Chief Daddy, Femi Beecroft aka Famzy who made a spectacular appearance and performed his hit tune “Moving Mad”. A shout to the internet viral star of the “You Don’t Touch Me’ video was had, while ‘Sweet Girls’ – Simi, Niniola, Seyi Shay – threw in style, vocals and more to spice up Falz’s magical concert.
It was indeed a night filled with splendour, beauty, elegance and magical moments that will forever remain in our hearts. The cinematic music concert was produced by Livespot 360 renowned for ground-breaking and out-of-town concepts, and Bahd Guys Entertainment, the record label founded by Falz.
