Rapper and Songwriter Folarin Falana, better known by his stage name Falz, has made a sensational revelation about ‘’ practice in churches.
Falz who spoke in a new interview with Silverbird TV, revealed the practice which is often done to welcome first-timers in church howbeit discouraged him after he experienced it.
In the interview which was granted after announcing the second edition of his headline concert, The Falz Experience, the multi-talented Nigerian artiste feel the practice should be redressed.
The entertainer revealed he valued spirituality over religion however believe that does not make him less of a christian.
He said, “I have nothing against the church or going to church. Everyone has the right to practice the religion they desire. It has been a while that I have been to church. It does not make me less of a Christian.
“The reason is that 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?”
He also spoke on the criticisms that greeted the release of the album stating that, “My songs are always going to be heard. The world is a lot smaller now; it only takes one post and it’s everywhere regardless of the attempts by powers that be to try to stop stuff here and there.
If you’re making this kind of music, you have to always be ready for the worst. Of course, ‘This is Nigeria’ was banned. We’re still in court. But I have my fundamental rights so you can’t really stop that regardless of what body you are.”
Speaking on his concert set to hold on June 8, 2019 at Eko Hotel and Suites, Lagos, Falz explained that the Falz Experience is a one of a kind musical theatre show that showcases the unique sides of Falz the Bahd Guy, but this time with a twist.
After setting the bar so high in 2017, the award-winning musician has also announced that he has a special surprise for the concert goers on the 8th.
