In the music, Vector and Falz criticised INEC, its chairman, and different political events for allegedly participating in electoral fraud throughout the just-ended common elections. Falz asserts that he would quite die combating for justice than hold silent and perish because of the nation’s damaged system.
He joined the programme from the United Kingdom by way of Skype, however the rapper claimed that he was not abroad as a result of he was fearful of battle with state actors over the contentious music.
He mentioned, “I knew that was going to come back up once you introduced that I used to be doing this from London. Like I mentioned earlier on, this isn’t the primary time, this isn’t the second time, this isn’t the third time.
“I’ve launched tons of data which can be very confrontational. And I used to be on floor. I’m at all times on floor once I launched these data.It is to not say that I’m operating wherever. Absolutely not. Everyone know the place to seek out me. If anybody needs to seek out me. But I’ve no cause to worry something. And I at all times say this when individuals ask me ‘how do you do this stuff with none worry of penalties?

“And this is identical reply that I at all times give: the form of life we live already is one which we’re kind of fading away already. It’s not a significant life what we now have in Nigeria as a rustic.
What’s the worst that would occur? It’s dying. I do not worry dying. I might quite go down combating for a simply trigger. I might quite be remembered as somebody that lived a life that was significant quite than somebody that for instance was strolling down the street and obtained run over by a danfo [bus] as a result of he was driving recklessly. Or, somebody that obtained a coronary heart illness and couldn’t save himself as a result of there aren’t any hospitals able to saving him in Nigeria.”
