Popular Nigerian singer, Falz, has explained why he stopped going to church.
During the release of the much-anticipated album, ‘Moral Instruction,’ Falz’s mother complained about her son not attending church services.
Femi and Funmi Falana were present during their son’s ‘album listening party’.
During the event, his mother used the opportunity to express her concern about the fact that her son hardly goes to church.
Speak about his new album, Funmi said, “Folarin, you don’t go to church and I am bothered. I hope you would start going to church this year.”
The singer told Vanguard that his mother was right because he hardly went to church.
He said, “I have nothing against the church or going to church; everyone has the right to practise 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 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,” the singer said.
On why he shaved off his beard, Falz added, “I did not shave my beard because of the album; it was just a coincidence. I was filming a project in relation to the album and I had to look a lot younger and that is why I shaved off my beard.
“I have been getting mixed reactions since I shaved my beard; some people tell me, ‘please, go and find our beard back’. I did not know that we owned the beard together. Other people told me that they love the new look and I am still a ‘sweet boy’ with or without the beard.”

Sometimes I think and I seem to hate you and I’ve found out I’m only deceiving myself…
Because I’ve found out that I truly love you and I cannot be without you…
Yeah, I love you and I miss you
Yet, if you fuck up doesn’t mean I cannot be without you…
I’m saying this because I’m crazy about you…
Even if you’re passing some difficult times, but you still have to calm down, so that I can…
Comfort you, my lover
The only person that I love…
Even if you call or you do not…
I will ever be ready to love well
As long as you’ve decided to love me well, after you’re back from your trouble
The only person I think of, at night and at day break

Tope Alabi under critics as she condemns Yinka Alaseyori’s song Oniduromi
Evangelist Tope Alabi,a popular gospel mucisian is under tackles for condemning song by Yinka Alaseyori in a viral video.
We noticed that Alaseyori, had in a song described God as her (spiritual) guarantor or advocate.
The song, ‘Oniduro mi e seun’, meaning ‘thank You my Guarantor’, became very common among the people of the South West especially in their churches.
But, Tope Alabi, making evil reference to Alaseyori during an event, said it will be a terrible mistake for anybody to tag God as his or her guarantor.
She said there was a day she wanted to sing the song, but the Holy Spirit told her to shut up.
To her, God is more than a guarantor or surety and it will be terrible to describe him so.
The singer spoke in Yoruba language that Gospel musicians need to digest songs very well before releasing them to the public, otherwise individuals will be singing something meaningless.
“Look at the enormous things God has done and somebody now came out to say Oniduromi e seun. God is not my own guarantor. God is more than a guarantor. I also loved that song, but the day I wanted to sing it, the Holy Spirit said ‘shut up your mouth.’ This is not like saying a song is not good. When you receive a song in the spirit, there are some deliberations you must have with the Holy Spirit before releasing it to the public, otherwise, if you release it the way it comes, individuals will just be singing rubbish. He has given us the brain to digest through it very well, then bring it back.”
But, many have been attacking Tope Alabi online, saying she was only envious of Yinka.
See some comments below.
Adetunbi Saheed Ige: “Now I can understand. Tope Alabi thinks she can be the champion forever? This woman is giving her a run for her money in praising God and Aunty Tope just wants to bully her to silence. It is not possible. This woman just hit global limelight due to Tope Alabi’s envy.”
Babajide Oderinde: “Whatever Tope Alabi’s real intention was with the unchristian-like and childish stunt she pulled, she has only succeeded in making this gifted woman more popular. Although I have been listening to her soul lifting songs for some time now, but I didn’t know what she looks like until now. This is a case of God using your enemy’s antics to lift you up. The kinda hatred and earthly competition that runs in Christendom.”
Paul Olayemi: “You people don’t really know how God has done it for the lady that sang the song to be more famous. God has used the so-called Tope Alabi to be her advertising channel without any payment. She believes she was bringing her down without knowing the criticism she did to her will turn to her uplifting. Tope Alabi, thanks for the free advert you did to promote the lady through your jealousy.”
Princess Pauline: Abraham was great, Isaac was very great, but Jacob was exceedingly great. Alaseyori is your time to Yori. If you know, you know.
Anuoluwa Iyiola: Tope Alabi gets pride. Imagine her attending a christain programme, if you don’t pay her up to N250k, she can never come, if not more. Business gospel artiste, I am not saying they should not give you money, but gospel is not for sale.
