We agree, it is still early days to conclude on the next career plans for Falz. However, It doesn’t take a genius to know that the rapper’s success in film and music has mostly been hinged on his ability to successfully utilize social media; both for his music and his brand as an entertainer.
From his hilarious Instagram skits, to his interaction with a cult-following of fans, and an eccentric personality that gives him the ability to pull off some of the most inclusive cost-effective promotional campaigns for his music, Falz’ story is a lesson for entertainers across Africa and another win on the scoreboard for the power of social media.
We are on an information highway people, we recommend everybody gets on board before its too late.
