SWITZERLAND, SEPTEMBER 09 – Falana’s Chapter One Tour kicked off in style on the 16th of August at Terra Kulture, Victoria Island, Lagos with the support of Access Bank and will be concluding in grandeur at the NAF CENTRE in Abuja on the 6th of September 2019. The momentum gathered at the opening show in Lagos drove her to deliver inspired performances in Accra and Kigali respectively.
The West and East African residents in both cities were astounded by her embodiment of Alternative Soul music along with her ability to combine classic covers with an Afrobeat infusion; delivering performances as pure as she did.
The anticipation for Falana in the capital of Nigeria is palpable as this is no ordinary concert. Opening the show will be upcoming artistes: Jessica Bongo and Blessing Tegban.

Falana will be performing with her newly curated band, giving the audience that fresh and different sound music lovers in the capital have been thirsting for.
To further add personality to the show, Falana’s singular intention of leaving no one untouched by adding little pockets of comedy while she performs is incredibly brilliant and thus, makes The Chapter One concert in Abuja one you absolutely mustn’t miss.
Describing herself simply as a musician, singer, artiste and a cancer (star sign), Falana is a lover of languages and musical instruments as well, laughingly confessing that she plays different types of instruments, which she believes “helps the creative process of writing music.”
This upcoming star reveals that the musical journey has been great so far. “If you do what comes naturally to you as a musician and you are yourself, people would see your music as different and authentic. I have had a lot of good feedback from different age ranges and groups of people about my music and it fills a lot of different spaces in people; I am really excited about that.”
Performing for the first time ever in Nigeria two years ago in 2014 at the Afropolitan Vibes held in Freedom Park in Lagos, alongside Yemi Alade, and General Pype, she describes the experience as fun and unreal. “I think people like music that is different, because anything different calls your attention. The response was really positive I must say. A lot of people accepted and appreciated my music, it was special. ”
Ending the tour in the capital of Nigeria, her home country, is a fitting finale for this growing global sensation.
