During an Interview ….. Falz was asked about his views on The Nigeria Music Industry and the level of competition he is experiencing.. this was his reply;
“I believe what you have to do in a scene such as this is to be unique. And I think my music is very unique. The infusion of comic lyrics, which people can easily relate with, with a lot of old school jam and the contemporary hip-hop is what makes my brand of music very unique. It is very different from what any other artiste out there does”.
