She has Christian parents, her father is a famous Nigerian singer Victor Olaiya. But due to family troubles, she left her husband and three children and then converted into Islam. She states that Islam gives her more power and inner calm. She commented about the decision in one of her interviews:

“Honestly, Islam is a peaceful religion. The aspect I love most is that you don’t need any pastor to get closer to God. You don’t really need anybody to pray for you. You can always pray on your own and Almighty Allah will answer your prayer without any intermediary. I have been doing that since I became a Muslim and it has always worked for me.”

From a Muslim point of view, I see most of these celeb women converting because of some wealthy men.

But still people should not criticize their choice because there are rich Christian men out there who they can marry and it seems their marriage does not work with these christian men.

I’m not surprised at all. All of them have something in common(divorce) which made them switch to another religion..even some of the acclaimed christian actresses still visit alfa’s underneath.
I’m not disturbed anyway. Because even Koran stated that “if you find anything confusing here, you can ask those who read the bible. The truth is already revealing that”

Jesus was the only person that performed miracles in the koran. Muhammad was busy leading his followers to various wars, till he died.

The only woman mentioned in the koran is Marian”mary(the mother of jesus)
Koran said she went to heaven with her physical body. Meaning the assumption of the blessed virgin is written in the koran.

You people should come down from your high horses let me educate you about the koran you studied and didn’t understand since you were kids.

Lots of Muslims converts to Christianity on daily basis, so cut the crap!!!

Koran said Muhammad is dead. And won’t rise again.
Same koran said Jesus is the word of God.
And koran said God created the world through the word(Jesus).
They er just confused being. Surely they need our prayers…
Peace!!!
