Bahd Guyz Entertainment CEO, rapper, and actor, Folarin Falana, popularly known as Falz the Bahd Guy, has taken to social media to announce his fifth full-length studio project, titled ‘Bahd.’
The rapper has been preaching the ”Bahd Gospel” since his debut album, 2014’s ‘Wazup Guy‘ in the early days of his career. ‘Bahd’ will be the follow-up to 2019’s renegade and genre-fusing ”Moral Instructions‘ which received stellar commercial and critical acclaim among critics and fans alike.
The comic emcee invited fans into his creative walls to witness the creation of some songs that might make the final cut of the project, via an episodic documentary titled ‘Road to Bahd.’ He explained that the album will take a different dimension and direction, and there are possibilities that there won’t be any rap songs on the album.
In the documentary which stars some of the featured artists on the album, the artist explains the inspirations and creative processes behind the songs.
It is refreshing to see moe Nigerian artists take project rollouts more seriously, an effect of what a well-planned and executed rollout helped Burna Boy’s ‘Twice as Tall’ achieve in 2020, maybe.
Do you think this album will live up to the almost ethereal standard the emce has built into his discography for the last decade, are you expecting a socio conscious effort like ‘Moral Instructions,’ giving that this will be Falz’ first project since he was heavily involved in the EndSARS protests, or another mood music filled endeavour closer to 2017’s ‘27?’
What we do know is that Duktor Sett, Yung Willis, and frequent collaborator Sess, are on production duties, and featured artists include Timaya and Boy Spyce.
