There was news on the media in recent time about
Falz’s mother expressing a heavy heart over the fact
that Falz doesn’t go to church anymore. At the
album listening party of Falz’s latest project; “Moral
Instruction”, Falz’s mother, Mrs Funmi Falana
said; “Folarin, you don’t go to church and I am
bothered. I hope you would start going to church this
Falz has however cleared the air on his mother’s
claim and also given a reason he doesn’t go to
church anymore. He said to Saturday Beats,
“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”.
