Falz narrates why he stopped going to church

Nigerian rapper, Falz in the course of his album ‘Moral Instruction’ listening party revealed that he stopped going to church because pastors always put him on the spot even when he’s not ready to talk to the whole church.

Mrs. Funmi Falana, Falz’s mother, was one of the guests at her son’s album ‘Moral Instruction’ listening party.

Who got a chance to talk at the event, revealed that she is worried that Falz doesn’t go to church.

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

Falz responding to her mother, however, stated that he has nothing against the church in a recent chat with Saturday Beats.

According to him, not going to church doesn’t make him less of a Christian.

“I have nothing against the church or going to church; everyone has the right to practice 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 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? 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,”
