If you were under some sort of impression that “Ello Bae!” was just a careless throwaway remark that Falz the Bahd Guy just formed one day, then you thought wrong!
The lawyer-turned-entertainment juggernaut, our favourite razzoid, funny man, rapper and artiste has plotted a career that has risen to stratospheric heights, capturing the hearts of old, young, razz and sophisticated alike, and has now been internationally recognised as a force to be reckoned with on the Nigerian entertainment scene.
Falz the Bahd Guy will be a speaker at the upcoming Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity – an eight day event that holds yearly where hundreds of experts from all over the world share their insights and experience on the stage in Cannes, France.
He will be speaking alongside the likes of Timbaland, Iggy Pop, Tim Armstrong (The CEO, AOL), Clay Bavor (Vice President and VR, Google), Anderson Cooper, Victor Cruz and many more of some of the brightest members of our world today.
His biography on the site reads thus:
Folarin Falana a.k.a. Falz the Bahd Guy is an award winning ethnic hip-hop artist, actor and entertainer. His story sets him apart. He is a trained lawyer, being the son of famed social activist lawyer, Femi Falana and he has been called to the bar. However, though educated in the UK, he has rocked the Nigerian music landscape by creating an engaging local persona that delivers high quality rap music using local accents and traditional cultural nuances in his musical imagery. This is built a huge following across all social classes. Falz is considered an authority in building personal brands that resonates with the African audience, and is a brand ambassador major brands such Remy Martin.
This is a massive step for the star, and speaking as someone who has followed his trajectory from the very beginning, I couldn’t be more happy for him. Congratulations, Falz!
