In a statement, Scott Scherer, senior vice-president BLK PRIME, said Falz will, in the series, take on the role of a character that’s nothing close to his past efforts.
“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,” he said.
“Church is a complex character that will showcase Falz in a way audiences have never seen him before,”
