Falz, real name Folarin Falana could do no wrong in the eyes of fans. He has their love and knows this well and has been the next big thing since sliced bread as far as the Nigerian entertainment industry is concerned.
However, that may not be the case right now, as the rapper just stepped on the toes of many of his fans.
Falz hosts ‘On the couch’ with Laila Johnson. The show is about interviewing politicians aspiring for office.
Last week, the duo interviewed 2019 presidential aspirant, Donald Duke, an interview that was really interesting to watch. Only yesterday, Eunice Atuejide a presidential aspirant was interviewed ‘On the couch’.
Falz and Laila have now come under fire for how they ‘treated’ the National Interest Party(NIP) presidential aspirant.
Viewers argued that the interviewers were condescending and unprofessional, treating her without respect because she isn’t as successful as Donald Duke.
They also attacked Laila, for being a feminist but didn’t even acknowledge that Eunice mentioned that she was raped.

I can’t take that on the couch show seriously because the Laila and Falz brought a different energy for Donald Duke & then a completely different energy for the other people who aren’t ‘successful politicians’ yet e.g Eunice, Sowore etc.
Let me also add that Eunice was brilliant
Eunice spoke on some serious & personal topics like being raped, this is a major issue affecting lots of women, Falz and Laila missed that. This is because every interview now wants to get gems or hit numbers by focusing on Homosexuality or feminism. Let questions lead to others
