Falz’s mum concerned her son doesn’t go to church
Mrs. Funmi Falana, the mother of rapper, Falz, has expressed concern over her son’s refusal to go to church.
She made this known at the listening party for the 28-year-old’s fourth studio album, Moral Instruction, earlier this week.
Mrs. Falana said, “Folarin, you don’t go to church and I am bothered. I hope you would start going to church this year.”
Falz confirmed his mother’s statement in a chat with journalists.
“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,” Falz said.
