Nigerian rapper and actor, Falz clocks 30 today.
The lawyer, activist, and entertainer has endeared himself to young Nigerians even more than in the comedic or the usual sense, as he recently, alongside the fellow singer Runtown hit the streets (the spark that ignited the demonstrations across the nation) in the most recent effort to make the Nigerian government answerable to the youths by being one of the conveners of #EndSARS protests and reminding the young people of the country that they can demand better governance peacefully and not relent in their efforts till their demands are met.
Being one of the most recognisable faces in the social media space gave him a great platform to educate other citizens on their constitutional rights in which he tagged “Knowledge is power” in the first educational video with a focus on, “holding public servants accountable. They are in office to serve us and not the other way round.”
Falana, however, is spending his birthday as an observer at the Lagos Judicial Panel of Enquiry first sitting with members of the press and observers all present. The NBA President, Olumide Apata also made an appearance.

In his birthday tweet, he said, “It has been a week since we lost our brave soldiers at the toll gate.
I have also now officially been on this earth for 30 years.
I pray for a much better tomorrow. I pray for a Nigeria that I can truly be proud to call home 🙏🏽
