Falz: I Don’t Go To Church But….
Switzerland, June 6
“I’m not an atheist. I believe there is a God. But I believe in spirituality over religion.”
Those were the words of Nigerian rapper, Falz the bahd guy in a recent interview with Silverbird Television.
The ‘This is Nigeria’ crooner revealed that though he does not go to church, he is however not an atheist as he believes there is a God. He went further to add that despite his acknowledgement of the different religions, he believes more in spirituality.
“I have nothing against the church or going to church. 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,” he said.
Expatiating on his reasons for steering clear of the church, he pointed out that he was put under undue pressure when he attended a few churches.
According to him, “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?”
