Nigerian rapper and actor Falz explains why he has failed to attend church services lately. The multiple award-winning rapper tells Siverbird TV crew what necessitated his withdrawal from church fellowships.
The ‘Alakori’ who hold the second edition of his Falz Experience at Eko Convention Center says he still very spiritual.
“I have nothing against the church or going to church,” he said.
“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?”
Earlier in January, Falz released his fourth studio album ‘Moral Instruction’, he also responded to the criticisms on the project.
“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.”
