(PHOTO): Falz And Fela Kuti Now Have One Thing In Common
Rapper Falz and the legendary Fela Anikulapo Kuti now have one thing in common - Lemi Ghariokwu.
Lemi designed all of Fela Kuti’s iconic album covers and is responsible for the cover art of Falz’s fourth studio album, 'Moral Instruction.'
After the release of the lead single, 'Talk', Falz shared the tracklist and cover art for the album which will be released on January 15.
This he announced via a post on his Instagram page, where he stated, 'I’m so excited about the art we have created together on this project. More importantly because I had the chance to work with someone equally passionate about this theme!"
The album which is a socio-conscious themed project comes after the ''27'' album released in 2017 and contains nine songs with guest appearances from Demmie Vee, Chillz and producer/friend Sess.
When sharing his thoughts on Facebook about designing the cover art for Falz’s album, Lemi Ghariokwu said;
“I’m very excited about my collaboration with Falz on his moral instruction album. conscious music meets conscious art again o. This society must not remain in the doldrums!!! Nigeria youth stand up to be counted. Na me talk am o!!!”
