The outspoken rapper, a son of the popular human rights activist Femi Falana (SAN), revealed that the damage to his ACL occurred while playing football. According to him, “my ligament was torn totally so the knee kind of scattered”.
Explaining further, he said, “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”.
Falz lamented that he had been through a very tough time. “I had ACL reconstruction surgery”. He however enthused that he is back and running now. “But It always happens”, it’s a one-time injury and it’s a slightly common injury for athletes.
