Why I underwent knee surgery – Falz
Nigerian rapper, actor and activist, Folarin Falana, popularly known as Falz, has revealed why he underwent knee surgery and described his ordeal with the injury as “a very difficult time.”
Recall, Mp3bullet reported that Falz had knee surgery on May 2, 2023, at a medical institution in London, United Kingdom.
Falz stated during an appearance on The Big Friday Show, a program on Cool FM Nigeria hosted by reality personality Tacha, that he underwent surgery after tearing his ACL while playing football.
He said, “It was a very difficult time for me. I had ACL reconstruction surgery. Your ACL is like a ligament that holds your knee together. What actually happened is that that ligament torn totally. So the knee kind of scattered.
“It was an actual football injury. I was just running and the thing just comot like that. I don’t know how it happened because I have been playing football since I was a child. And everything was going smoothly. Maybe on that fateful day, I didn’t stretch well.
“But it always happen. It’s a slightly common injury for athletes. I’m glad I’m back. I’m up and running now. It’s a one-time surgery. Now I’m in rehab doing physiotherapy. Just exercising and trying to build the muscle back to 100 per cent.”
