Nigerian RnB legend Chibuzor Richard Oji popularly known as FAZE is back with some inspirational words of wisdom from some of the best minds in the history of the black race. In what seems to be a special Nigerian Democracy Day release to motivate and inspire youths, Faze of the pioneering musical group of the 90s, Planatashun Boiz, titled this one Words of Great Men.
The historically deep and meaningful track features inspirational words from such iconic personalities as Dr Martin Luther King Jnr, Nelson Mandela, Dr Goodluck Jonathan and President Muhammadu Buhari. Words of Great Men also includes notable mentions of such legends of the black race such as Fela Kuti, Bob Marley, Wole Soyinka, Jaja of Opobo, Lucky Dube, etc.
This might not be Faze’s greatest effort, but this one proves the difference between artistes and legends. Those who still value music as a tool or weapon to right the wrongs and ills of a society. For this effort, we doff our hats and stand in ovation for the legendary Faze.
The song is a motivation and call-to-action for our youths to greatness. Those who should make a difference and leave their names imprinted on the sands of times such as our heroes past. This one might not be one to dominate airwaves when the average youth of today’s generation would prefer a dance song and club banger over an ideal dose of meaningful message. However, this song makes a lot of sense and we duly endorse it. Keep up the great work, Faze!
