“I Avoid Church Service Due To Undue Pressure”…Falz Declares


Actor-cum- rapper, Falz in a recent interview with Silverbird Television revealed why he does not go to the church saying “I’m not an atheist. I believe there is God. But I believe in spirituality over religion. I have nothing against the church or going to church.

Everyone has the right to practise the religion he/she desires. It has been a while that I have been to church. It does not make me less of a Christian”.

He went on to say, “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?”
