“Jeje” crooner, Folarin Falana, popularly known as Falz, covers the latest issue of Guardian Life Magazine.
The lawyer turned entertainer, in a chat, spoke about his music-comedy journey, his dream girl, the Nigerian legal system, his alter egos, fame and more.
On starting comedy and music as part of a school group called “Schoolboys”:
We were gaining quite some ground in school. We had a few groupies…there was a time we used to steal jokes from Night Of A Thousand Laughs. We used to watch it at home and come to school to crack people up. It was the way we cracked the joke that made it funny.
On his idea of the dream girl:
It has less to do with the looks and more to do with the personality. So intellectually sound, really smart, very ambitious with a great sense of humor and just really caring.
On how he deals with the fame:
It gets very hectic and stressful, sometimes you just want to be by yourself and have a quiet day but it’s not possible. You might run into fans and you’re not having a good day, but they need to take pictures and they need to hear you talk. If you are passionate about something or if you enjoy doing something you won’t get tired of it.
