In a recent exclusive interview with Cool FM, the renowned Nigerian singer, songwriter, and actor, Folarin Falana, popularly known as Falz opened up about a challenging chapter in his life as he recounted his experience with a knee injury.
The multi-talented artist humorously narrated how he sustained the injury while playing football and shared his journey to recovery.
Falz, revealed that the injury he faced was to his anterior cruciate ligament (ACL). The 32-year-old artist explained that the injury was a result of his love for football and his active participation in the sport.
During the interview, Falz light-heartedly recounted a fictional scenario involving a trial with the renowned Arsenal football club.
