Falz real name Folarin Falana has hit some nerves with his new hit song ‘Talk’. The song which was released this January has generated a lot of controversies, conversations and criticisms.
‘Talk’ addresses the menace in the country as of today. From corrupt politicians to vote buying and selling to rich Imams and pastors and other peculiar Nigerian problems.
However the one generating the hottest deal at the moment is ‘transactional sex’ ,which he condemned. Falz in this new song criticised women who give their body to men for a fine, the ‘runz’ girls.
Many critics have come at Falz with stones and sticks, bashing the musician for criticising what a woman chooses to do with her body. Well, there are people who came to the Singer’s defence.
Take a look at what we found on the streets of Twitter
I think Falz has started a very important conversation abt sex work, hypocrisy, the law, misogyny & exploitation. https://t.co/rX4EiMStmk

Falz blast the Government, Yahoo Boys, Police, Pastors, Religion and Runs Girls.
But why are some people triggered about the runs girls part? #MoralInstruction

If girls were the ones majorly doing Yahoo and they're the ones Falz have been attacking, he would have been called a misogynist since. Many woke women just come online looking for avenue to call men misogynists. Like making men look bad makes them feel good about themselves lols

If Falz has a problem with women using their vagina commercially, it's his opinion. Fact: there are more female sex workers in Nigeria, same way there are more yahoo boys than girls. Watching you all clutch at straws defending something you wouldn't let your sister do is amusing.

Falz says he hates transactional sex, but isn’t ‘Something Light’ about a girl that didn’t want to sleep with him even though he took her out and bought food for her? Isn’t that transactional??
