Following the uproar on social media that popular rapper, Folarinde Falana, better known by his stage name, Falz, lied about his age, the rapper has responded. Falz insists he is 27.
Recall that last week, Falz celebrated his 27th birthday and he released a music album, 27, to mark the day. However, this stirred up controversies on social media, with many arguing that Falz ‘faked’ his age.
Falz insists he is 27
Many believe that he is older than the 27 years which he claimed. At the height of the Internet uproar, Falz told doubting Thomases that he would show them his birth certificate to prove his real age.
In a chat with the Punch, the lawyer cum musician said, “I just said it as a joke. I have not taken my birth certificate anywhere or shown anybody. I don’t know why people think I’m lying about my age. All I know is that I’m doing well and I’m happy with my life.”
Speaking on his album which he released without prior announcement, he said, “I worked on the album for about a year, and when the time was right, I released it. The response has been very good. People love it and I’m very excited about that.”
For those who are wondering when Falz would be walking down the aisle, he said, “I don’t have plans for getting married right now. I’ll let it come naturally; whenever God says it’s the right time.”
Listing the qualities he likes in a woman, he said, “I like someone who is intelligent and highly cerebral. We need to be compatible and she being pretty wouldn’t be a bad idea.”
On his plans for December, he said, “I will be performing at lots of events and if I’m going to be having any concert, I would make the announcement at the appropriate time,” the ‘Something Light’ crooner added.
