Rapper Falz ‘The Badguy’ hasn’t given up on the EndSARS and EndPoliceBrutality protests in Nigeria which was the most dominated agenda across the globe with high profile celebrities and organizations lending their voices to the fight. Flawlessly directed by ‘Olu The Wave’, his recent music video of Johnny – a socially conscious tape revealed the ordeal of the victims of police brutality in Nigeria.
Taken from his fourth project – Moral Instruction released last year, the Nigerian rapper remains at the forefront of the #EndSARS and #EndPoliceBrutality movements. In lieu with the lyrics of the audio slide, the visual intepretation highlights and gives more intriguing insight on the violence that transipired amidst the peak of #EndSARS protests, culminating in the shooting of Lekki Toll Gate in Lagos by security forces.
“We will never forget the heroes that have been unlawfully slain. This is for them. For every single Nigerian life snatched away unlawfully, we must make sure we get justice,” the author posted on Instagram with snippet from the project. “Almost two years since I released the audio. Even more disturbing to think that as time passed, the message became more relevant.”

According to Native Magazine, unlike the previous Falz tapes which saw him build public appeal with his humorous and often charming takes on social issues, ‘Moral Instruction’ took a more serious tone as he criticised social norms and the negligent government with a Fela inspired gravitas.
Though “Johnny” was the tape’s opening track, it remains as timely as ever because it offers a detailed description of the police brutality that sparked the recent #EndSARS protests in Nigeria. Over the retro-inspired hip-hop beat produced by TMXO, Falz narrated the story of young people getting killed by trigger-happy police officers.
To drive home just how rampant this issue is, he’s just updated the nearly two-year-old track with a graphic video to match the horrific tales he narrated on the track. In addition, to the dramatised clips of Falz at a staged protest, Olu The Wave-directed music video also features some original clips of the police brutality recorded during the EndSARS protests—including the video recordings that captured as army officers attacked protesters at the Lekki toll gate.
