Folarin Falana, better known as Falz the bahd guy has been all over the news lately due to some controversial things he said during his album listening.
The 28 year old rapper and Nollywood actor shocked fans during the album listening party where he showed up looking bare and beardless. This had never happened since he joined the music Industry.
Reacting to this he said; “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.”
Falz also took the time to replies his fans who won’t stop asking why he went beardless.He wrote: “BTS from the #Moral Instruction Curriculum shoot. We had so much fun making this. Now you see why the beard disappeared”
During the said event, his mother used the opportunity to express her concern about the fact that her son hardly goes to church. 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.
Which Falz do you prefer? Bare or “Beardful”?
