Popular Nigerian rapper and singer, Folarin Falana, fondly called Falz, has explained why he remains single at 33.

The singer and actor stated that he is “being careful” to avoid marrying the wrong person.

The “Who go pay” artist acknowledged that his parents, particularly his father Femi Falana, are urging him to get married but he refuses to succumb to the pressure.

He shared these thoughts in a recent interview with Naija 102.7 FM, Lagos.

“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,” he said.

The rapper mentioned that his last serious relationship was during his University years.

Also, he explained that his celebrity status makes it challenging to find the right woman for marriage.

“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 said.
