How Nollywood Igbo Actress Vivian Metchie Converted To Islam After Iyabo Ojo Settled Her Hospital Bill

The actress who opened the floodgate of conversion to Islam in Nollywood few years ago has revealed how she recovered from a strange illness that almost took her life 4 years ago.

Meet Vivian Metchie, the one-time popular actress who converted to Islam after her husband left her in 2014.

The actress recently took to the social media to shower encomium on her fellow actress and devout Muslim Iyabo Ojo for coming to her rescue when she needed help the most.

According to her, almost all her so-called friends abandoned her and Iyabo Ojo was the one who came to her rescue.

See what she posted below.

Shortly after she recovered from the illness induced by her marriage crash, the actress converted to Islam.

A quick check with 3 top Nollywood sources revealed that Vivian who was left shattered by the crash of her 11 year old marriage became uneasy with her circle of Christian friends after they refused to help her . She later developed intimate bond with her Muslim colleague, Iyabo Ojo, who eventually introduced her to Islam.

Shortly after her conversion, Vivian said she dumped Christianity because it was too confusing for her.

Her adopted Muslim name is Fareedah.

    When you don’t know what you stand for, you will settle for anything.
    Even when she was a Christian Vivian doesn’t attend Church.
    I knew her mother then in Ikeja

      What’s this?. Must she go to church to be a believer?. Aren’t some of you Christians have said Christianity is personal relationship with God?. Why must she attended church collecting tithes while their members are poor?.

      Check yourself, ma’am.

      Lol, did you read where she said she was introduced to Islam, which means she was exposed to basics of Islam?.

      I honestly did not know iyabo ojo is Muslim. It means she understands importance of the third pillar of Islam, ZAKAT (Alms giving).

    I am definitely sure that she does NOT know what Christianity is all about. She is like so many people called Christians, however, WITHOUT Jesus Christ. May The Almighty Jehovah have mercy on her, and show her the light of the Gospel of Peace of Jesus Christ, in Jesus name, Amen.

    Islam is the religion approve of God to mankind even the christians believe Jesus wasn’t the founder of Christianity it was invented after the demised of Jesus (asw). So, vivian now Sister Fareedah you are welcome to our fold. May God blessings and guidance be over you and your offsprings. Amin

    I don’t know why it’s an ailment for some people when they hear or see people converting to Islam,what an hatred of religion and then they will claim to be the most loved human on earth,God is LOVE so why areu discriminating or creating an hatred scene cos someone converted to a BELIEVE,Islam means PEACE and HARMONY and she believed she’s gotten it in Islam,so be it…..if she insisted to be in Christianity also so be it,Laide Bakare was from a Muslim family and married a xtian so therefore converted to xtianity,who has halted her for that despite being an ALHAJA that perform Hajj?and after she remarried a Muslim she converted back,so who’s stress is that? She has her life to live
