Award-winning rapper and entertainer,. Falz was honoured with the ‘,Artiste of the Year ‘ award at the epoch making Leadership Conference and Awards ceremony held on Thursday in Abuja.
The annual ceremony organised by LEADERSHIP Media Group, publishers of the Leadership Newspaper, recognises personalities, companies and government agency who made a difference and became outstanding in their endeavours in the previous year.
Falz whose real name is Folarin Falana, aside his distinct music and stagecraft, renders his voice to issues affecting the society. His 2019 album titled ‘Moral Instruction’ displayed another side of him given to advocacy and speaking truth to power through various platforms like his father, human rights lawyer, Femi Falana (SAN).
Falz was recognized by the organisers for lending his voice and being one of the major anchors of those that championed the famous #EndSARS protests in 2020- a youth movement decrying the menace of police brutality and corrupt ways.
