Why I hate going to church – Falz


Folarin Falana, better known as Falz, said he is not gravitated to church services.

The popular rapper made this revelation when his mother publicly lampooned him over his infrequent attendance at church service at the listening party of his album, ‘Moral Instruction,’ attended by his parent.

The singer advanced reason for his apathy for church service saying his experience informed it.

“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,” the 28-year-old told Punch.
