Nigerian rapper and singer, Folarin Falana, aka Falz The Bahdguy, has recalled a near-death experience with members of his Bhad Guys band ten years ago.
He said the incident happened in 2013 between Abuja and Lokoja after they did their first N1 million gig in Abuja and were going to another gig in Benin.
The lawyer-turned-rapper said their vehicle was attacked by gunmen numbering about five and the driver was killed instantly, leaving the vehicle on a free drive until it eventually crashed into a forest.
He said when they regained consciousness, they saw a hoodlum and he demanded money from them.
He said he told the hoodlum that they had no money and after many threats, he and the gunmen shooting at the road ran away after hearing police sirens.
The multi-faceted entertainer said the police eventually came to their rescue after many private cars refused to help them to the hospital.
Speaking in the latest episode of the Untapped Podcast, Falz said he and his band members have scars of injuries sustained from the incident on their bodies.
