Falz Reveals Why He Doesn’t Go To Church

Fresh off the release of his highly anticipated album, “Moral Instruction“, popular Nigerian singer and rapper, Folarin Falana, better known as Falz, has revealed why does not go to church.

The revelation comes on the back of worries by his mother about the fact that her son hardly goes to church.

During his album listening party were his parents, Femi and Funmi Falana, were among the guests, Mrs Falana had said:

Folarin, you don’t go to church and I am bothered. I hope you would start going to church this year.”

However, in a chat with The Punch, the “Talk” singer admitted that his mother was right because he hardly went to church; however, he gave his reasons.

His words:“I have nothing against the church or going to church; everyone has the right to practise the religion they desire but personally, as a Christian, it has been a while that I have been to church. It does not make me less of a Christian.

“The most important thing is spirituality and your personal connection with God. The reason I haven’t attended a church service in a long while is because I went to a few churches and during sermons, I was put under undue pressure. There was a time that a pastor called me to the altar just to acknowledge my presence for being in church.

“In my mind, I felt that the service was not about me. I felt that everybody was there to worship God, yet they were putting undue pressure on me. The pastor gave me the microphone to address the congregation and I was puzzled; what did he expect me to say to the congregation? These are some of the issues. I just want to go to church and worship God like a regular member of the congregation. I do not want that kind of attention. I was hoping that I would go to church on a Sunday and it would not be like any other day I’m at a public place or doing a show.”
