The project has earned critical acclaim while Femi and Made proudly carry on Fela Kuti’s legacy as torchbearers for change.

Both albums that make up ‘Legacy +’ are steeped in the tradition of Afrobeat invented by Fela Kuti (Femi’s father, and Made’s grandfather), but each also brings their own unique vision and sound. ‘Stop The Hate‘ honours Fela in a traditionally fun, sharply political, and affirming way. Meanwhile ‘For(e)ward’ is a modern and progressive freedom manifesto, pushing boundaries of the subgenre even further. Made also performs every instrument on his album!

Legacy +

Praise for ‘Legacy +’:

Made Kuti is a one-man studio band…[he] merges the slow-simmering rhythm and implacable horn riffs of vintage Afrobeat with a looping, prismatic, multilayered production, doubling back toward psychedelia.” – New York Times

“Giddy and transcendent” – Paste

“With one listen through ‘Legacy +,’ it’s clear that the late Fela Kuti’s musical family tree remains both strong and fruitful.” – American Songwriter

A fresh take on the Afrobeat sound that Fela pioneered in the 1970s and ’80s. Made carries the torch for his family’s Black consciousness and activist politics.” – SPIN

A remarkable collection” – Loud & Quiet (9/10)

Throws Afrobeat to the future” – The Observer

The dynasty continues” – Uncut (8/10)

Falz – “Mercy” (Prod. by Sess theprblm) 18

Falz drops the official audio to “Mercy”.

Bahd Guys Entertainment presents new single titled “Mercy” by Falz. This Falz’ first 2021 official single, a follow up to the single “Squander” featuring Niniola, released in December, 2020

Nigerian rapper Falz became known for his distinctive style of underscoring skillful rhyming with comedic flair. He broke through early in his career with single “Marry Me” from his 2014 album Wazup Guy, and drew international attention in 2018 with “This Is Nigeria,” a reworking of Childish Gambino’s “This Is America,” with new lyrics addressing the corruption in his country.

Falz was born Folarin Falana in 1990. His family traveled a lot during his early life, exposing him to various cultures. By the time he was in his teens, Falz was already interested in music and performance. He worked on various projects with friends and in 2009 released Shakara: The Mixtape, a collection of some of his earliest recordings. In 2011 he released several singles which introduced him to a new audience on a more commercial level. These singles led to the 2014 debut studio album, Wazup Guy, and his single “Marry Me” featuring guest vocals from Poe and Yemi Alade. The song and album made Falz as a talent to watch in Nigeria, and he returned in 2015 with his second album, Stories That Touch. Falz was consistently releasing new music as his acclaim grew, issuing new singles regularly as well as Chemistry, an EP made in collaboration with R&B vocalist released in 2016. At this point, he had embarked on an acting career in addition to his musical pursuits and was becoming very well-known within his country. He surprise-released third album 27 on his 27th birthday on October 27, 2017. Following the 2018 release of Childish Gambino’s groundbreaking “This Is America,” Falz issued his own reworking of the song and video called “This Is Nigeria.” The next year he released fourth album Moral Instruction. SPOTIFY

Today, July 29, 2021 Falz release a new single – “MERCY”, produced by Sess.

With Quotable Lyrics

Bad girl show man how you work it
Bad man go mad when you twerk it
Yea practise makes perfect

You make a man shout loud have mercy

Listen and Enjoy!
