ALBUM REVIEW: Falz – Wazup Guy

Falz Wazup Guy Album Launch Concert Poster_tooXclusive.com

After releasing a mixtape in 2009 (SHAKARA) as an introduction to the Nigeria Music Industry without receiving the expected buzz, Falz followed up with a couple of singles to appeal our appetite and seeing it created a hullabaloo around him as to which genre of music he can be classify as. He deemed it fit to release his debut album though well not anticipated. His 18-track album with one hidden track totaling 19 tracks portrays his unchanged style of fusing electronic-bass sounds with different genres.

Welcoming listeners to the album is a mock-up OAP who introduces Falz as a rapper, vocalist, lyricist and a great musician with the latter turning out to be too much hype.

See Me, a song that tactfully flowed with the introduction further shows the “I-don’t-send-you-I-am-a-celebrity” side  of Falz as he lyrically dropped lines about being the Hero who everyone wants to see (sic)

“Currency”, “High Class” & “Cool Parry are some of the high of the album having released as singles prior to dropping the album and videos shot for each of them. In each of them, the synchronization of Falz’s voice and StudioMagic’s electronic beats is one to be envied even if the contents seemed similar in all three tracks.

Aside “O Pari” which had Olamide, Falz didn’t bother to feature a major artiste with reasons best known to him. Baddo in his usual playful Yoruba word-play mode makes the track worth listening to as he was better placed at the concluding verse of the song.

In “Wazup Guy” the title track, Falz word plays childishly on a beat that sounded one too much Notorious BIG style although modified with electronic sounds by Studio Magic.

Been the son of a renowned human right activist, “How Far” is an expected track and with a catchy hook by Si J.r Dauda which talks about the ills of Nigeria, this song could be a theme song for his father’s movement.

Other tracks worthy of mention are “Hold something” which is has a different feel as he tries merging his usual pattern with Fuji and Marry Me which had Jonny’s wife – Yemi Alade and Poe.

Overall Falz didn’t resonate across all status. With his affluent background, he succeeds once again as a good son but street wisely, he missed the edge as there is no song capable of creating a sort of frenzy across generally. Having gotten his call unanswered his best bet is to try yet again.

  4. Gradually Tooxclusive is declining with every minute..
    Here’s an idea why not let the Fans Critic the Albums rather than these Dumbelina’s n dumbos you parade as Professionals..
    Right Now ft Dipo wasn’t even spoken off..
    And to think I actually saw the Tooxclusive Oga Playing with other artists..
    Dear Oga Pay attention to the Crap your Staff write #jeez

  9. Can’t believe I just read a very useless album review 4rm a novice. Yes dats wat u r Mr “The A”. Even had d guts to rate dis wonderful album a Paltry two star. Guess u prefer peepz like Danfo drivers to drop an album so dat u give dem 5starz. Its obvious u dnt kn anyfin abt album review.

  10. This review is total bollocks. If we fans should this reviewer, he wouldn’t get half a star and I ain’t exaggerating.

    • Should review this reviewer*

  11. It is vry unprofessional and unreasonable 2 rate dis album wit 2 star, d person dat rate it doesnt knw anytin abt gud music and lack gud judgement. Dis album is awesome.

  12. Bro check your feedback, obviously it’s giving you traffic as people spend more time reading your review and more time trying to comment. But I though u had content at heart. For traffic it’s good but for originality not good

  13. Dope album though.. Get a life mr ‘reviewer’ with ur jaundiced opinions. U won’t go far in life hating on another cat’s hustle. #Nonsense
