Nigerian rapper, Folarin Falana popularly called Falz has unconcealed that he’s not scared of losing his life, amidst #EndSARS crisis within the country.
In a recent interview with CNN’s Christiane Amanpour, the rapper who had been at the forefront within the fight against police brutality and illegal killings highlighted many alternative issues that the country is facing.
In his words:
I am not afraid for my life because where we are right now, I feel like I can easily die by anything else anyway.
We have a non-existent healthcare system, for example. We have a seriously high level of poverty; there is unemployment.
We are in a critical state because of the level of corruption and mismanagement of funds that we continue to see on a daily basis.
I can have an accident on my way to work and die because the state of healthcare is nothing to write home about. People have to travel abroad to have proper healthcare.
We keep on saying that every single Nigerian is one sickness away from passing away. “So what kind of life am I living any way? Why should I be afraid of dying? I am going to die anyway, so what is the point?
According to him, the key issue encompassing the group action of the ill-famed unit of the Nigerian police is that the very same claim has been created incessantly over the years, with none visible changes.
