Though in support of the action by labour, he stated that the strike made him stranded in Uyo as his return flight to Lagos was cancelled due to the closure of airports.

Recall that the Nigeria Labour Congress, NLC, and the Trade Union Congress, TUC, embarked on an indefinite strike on Monday to force the government to agree on a new minimum wage for workers and reevaluate the increase in electricity prices for certain consumers.

The rapper, however, said he understands the reasons for the strike, adding that he is in support of the labour unions’ demands.

Speaking in a video message shared via his Instagram account, Falz said: “I woke up this morning, set out for the airport only to hear that the airport is closed, all the flights are cancelled because of the strike action. I can’t make it to Lagos, now stuck in Uyo.

“It affected me because there is a video shoot I’m supposed to do in Lagos today, I ended up losing money because we have already booked stuff, so we are going to have to pay another amount. Despite the fact that it really affected me, I understand the reason for the strike and I’m with them. I am with the labour. In fact, this strike is supposed to happen earlier than now.”
