Nigerian rapper, Falz The Badt Guy, real name Folarin Falana, is set to make history for himself. The comic actor cum musician will be making his Hollywood debut as a lead role actor in a new TV series titled “Church.”
Falz, who is popular for his role as Segun in “Jenifa’s Diary,” signed a multi-season deal with BLK PRIME – an American entertainment company funded by the Silicon Valley EFC Investment Group – and is expected to star as William Randolph Church, a charismatic Nigerian billionaire in the TV series.
“I am so excited to introduce my character, Church, to audiences around the world and to be a part of BLK PRIME’s mission of offering diverse streaming entertainment worldwide,” the Nigerian actor said via his Instagram page.
Also excited about the prospect of working with Falz, BLK PRIME, in a statement made by its SVP Programming, Scott Scherer, said;
“We’re thrilled to be working with Falz. With millions of fans around the world and nearly 3 million Instagram followers, Falz has proven to be a gifted performer with the ability to captivate an audience. Church is a complex character that will showcase Falz in a way audiences have never seen him before.”
The show will premiere on BLK PRIME worldwide before the end of June 2018.
The rapper who had a great outing in the previous year was able to round off the year with a wonderful concert: Falz The Experience which was reported to be sold out. The movie sequence of the concert is also reported to hit the cinemas in April 2018.
The multi-talented artiste who made it known that he might be tying the knot soonest said he is getting a lot of pressures from family and friends to get married since his colleagues in the entertainment industry are already getting 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.”
