Popular Nigerian rapper and singer, Folarin Falana, popularly known as Falz, has opened up on his single status at the age of 33, attributing it to his cautious approach towards marriage.

In an interview with Naija 102.7 FM, Lagos, the ‘Marry Me’ crooner disclosed that while his parents, particularly his father, renowned lawyer Femi Falana, frequently express concerns over his marital status, he refuses to succumb to pressure.

“I’m not yet married. I’m single to stupor. My dad expresses concern over my marital status daily. If I greet my dad good morning, he would say the morning will be good if you were married.

“Both my mum and dad are deeply concerned about my status, although my dad pressures me the most. My mum is a bit calm now. It seems like she has passed the baton to my dad. No one can pressure me into getting married, not even my dad [laughs],” Falz said.

Addressing his romantic life, the singer revealed that he has not been in a serious relationship since his university days.

Falz, known for his witty lyrics, further clarified that while he remains single, he still holds an interest in women.

“Currently, I’m not dating anyone. I’m a straight man. I like women. But for a while now, I haven’t experienced a serious relationship. I was still in the university the last time I had a serious relationship.

“My lifestyle as a celebrity is difficult to find someone to commit to. Also, there are a lot of happenings in the industry that make having a booming career and a healthy relationship seem difficult. So because of that, I’m trying to be careful. There’s no issue. I’m just trying to be careful,” he added.
