Falz & Vector “Yakubu” Song Review
Yakubu: Falz and Vector's Powerful Call for Accountability in Nigeria's Electoral Process
“Yakubu,” the newest single from Falz and Vector, is a powerful and thought-provoking track that calls for openness and accountability in Nigeria’s electoral process. The music is about the 2023 elections marred by gross irregularities and violence.
Falz and Vector’s lyrics in “Yakubu” are scathing, with the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) Chairman, Prof. Mahmood Yakubu, and corrupt political groups accused of electoral malpractice being singled out. The music expresses the dissatisfaction of Nigerians who have been oppressed and denied their constitutional right to vote.
The verses of Falz and Vector are complemented by a catchy beat created by Chillz. Mr. Yakubu, e ma n se bi fraudster,” the chorus repeats throughout the song, leaving no question about the song’s message.
The song’s music video, produced by Oye 2.0 and Falz, emphasizes the song’s message even more. Scenes show Nigerians protesting the election results and demanding transparency and responsibility from the government.
“Yakubu” is more than just a tune; it’s a rallying cry. It calls on Nigerians to hold their leaders responsible and to insist on transparency in the electoral process. The song is a powerful reminder that democracy cannot flourish in the face of corruption and electoral fraud.
Finally, “Yakubu” is a must-listen for all Nigerians who care about democracy and decent governance. The song is a powerful expression of Nigerians’ anger at being denied their constitutional right to vote. Falz and Vector have once again proven their lyrical ability with this track, and the song’s message is one that all Nigerians should take to heart.
