Am not an atheist – Falz blushes off the rumor.

“I’m not an atheist. I believe there is a God. But I believe in spirituality over religion,” he said.

Recall Falz’s mother earlier this year expressed concern over her son’s refusal to go to church during the “Moral Instruction” album listening session.

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

In his response, the musician mentioned that one does not need to go to church to worship God.

He said, “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 connection with God.”

I went to a few churches, and during sermons, I was put under undue pressure,” he disclosed.

“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,” he disclosed. “There was a time that a pastor called me to the altar 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.”
