While speaking in an exclusive chat with PUNCH Newspaper, popular rapper and actor, Folarin Falana, aka Falz, disclosed how he almost died from a robbery incident with his management team sometime ago after his driver was shot during a robbery incident on the high way.
According to him, looking at his life at the moment, God saved him for a reason, adding that that was one of his toughest experiences in his life.
He said “In November 2013, I had a terrible accident. It was a near-death experience and I was in the vehicle with my management team.
“The accident was caused by armed robbery. We were on the highway when suddenly the car was shot at. The driver was killed and we ended up in a ditch.
“I sustained injuries and the visible scars on my body are from that day.
“I really thought it was the end, especially when the driver died and his foot was still on the throttle, making the car to continue moving. As the car was about to crash, I just covered my face and brace for impact. I thought that at least, one should die as a fine boy.
“After the crash, the armed robbers came and ransacked all the bags in the car, looking for money. Today, I continue to remember that incident and I know that God kept me alive for a reason.”
Speaking about his plans for marriage, Falz said he had been under pressure to get married since BankyW got married.
“In recent past, people have been putting me under a lot of pressure to get ready. When Banky W and Adesua got married last year and it almost broke the Internet, it put a lot of pressure on bachelors like me. Everybody is getting married; so, I think it’s high time for me,” he added
