Popular rapper, Falz is presently trending on Nigerian Twitter over the #SexForGrades documentary.
Famous Nigerian feminist, Ozzy Etomi, jumped tweeted to ask why Falz has said nothing since the #SexForGrades documentary was released by BBC yesterday.
Remember that Falz was blasted in January this year after he dropped his jam, “Moral Instructor,” which was used to speak against transactional sex.
In a private listening session of the song, Falana broke down why he criticizes ladies who have sex and expect cash in return. He said he detests transactional sx since it leads to the objectification of the ladies.
Etomi cannot understand his silence now and has asked why Falz has kept mute about the documentary thus far.
See what she wrote,
We await his reaction.
