November 1st, 2013 – Nollywood Yoruba Actress Lizzy Anjorin On Why She Turns Muslim: I Left Christianity For Islam After My Father’s Death

Lizzy Anjorin: “I’m Half Muslim & Half Christian, I Reverted To Islam After My Father’s Death”

Never heard of people claiming to be half muslim and half christian before, this is the story of controversial Nollywood Yoruba actress Lizzy Anjorin who converted to Islam few weeks ago.

At last the actress has spoken on why she dumped Christianity for her newly found faith.

In a recent interview with City People magazine, hear what Lizzy said:

“It happened in a miraculous way which I have been expecting for long, not that I woke up yesterday and decided to change my religion. By birth, I was half Muslim and half Christian. My father was Christian while my mum was Muslim. Growing up I went to church because of my father. I didn’t have a choice at the time but I have always had interest in Islam so immediately my father died I switched over to my mum’s religion. It is a religion I love so much. Also Aisha is now my official name though Liz is still my name and I will continue to use the name to do movies.”

So in short, her mother influenced her decision to revert back to Islam.

  1. Confused mind. Christianity or Islam, it is same God we worship. The only difference is the mode of worship.

    • Uzoma Richard,lizzy is better than you.Please let tell you ,christain and islam are not worshiping the same God,go and read your bible (John 14-6)jesus said unto you and the islam ,i am the way the truth and the life:no man cometh unto the father but by me(JESUSE CHRIST).which name are they using?if not Jesus christ that means we are not worshiping the same God.Jesus christ died for us ,but islam and others did nt beleive.

      • Nnaemeka, thanks for the correction. Islam and Christianity are not same. There’s is nothing like HALF CHRISTIAN. You’re either for Christ or not. I think the actress is confused and wants to gain the world and Christ which is impossible. If she claims to be a Christian with that kind of dressing and tattoos, it’s a total sorry for her. So madam Lizzy or whatever your name is, choose this day whom to serve. You can’t serve the world and Christ at the same time. IMPOSSIBLE!!!

      • Hello Sir,

        i hereby give response to your comment on Ayisat change to Muslim, Islamic religion is made because of everybody in the live both christian, muslim etc because God sent each of the Prophets to their own group and the Prophet Muhammed (SAW) was sent to anybody that is continuing to live in this life we are.

        I also said that, Prophet Muhammed (SAW) was first told by Prophet Isaa(Jesus) that one man is coming after me his name will Muhammed the man will be sent to every one in this life. in reference.

        So my brother,Islamic religion is for everyone who decide not be hell fire on the last day my advised to you is to change your mind and be

    • Lack of knowledge is ignorant. Jesus is the LORD God. Have you ever hear it anywhere saying that Prophet is the LORD. They only called him prophet. That means we are not serving the same LORD God. Have you seen Christians travel to anywhere to stone Satan. That mean we are not serving same God. Jesus Christ die for all the world sin. We don’t need any more lamb sacrifice. I know the LORD God I am serving. Jesus Christ Messiah is the LORD God. The I am that I am. Please don’t be saying we are serving same GOD. It’s not so. Please read the bible to know who God is.

  2. u’re a confused entity I don’t think u know the real reason for joining Islam
    If u’re still acting in movies, you’re not qualified to join Islam period

  3. NO MATTER ANY RELIGION YOU BELONG TO , GOD WILL NOT BECAUSE OF IT DIVIDE THE SKY , WE ARE ALL UNDER THE SAME SKY , SO WE ARE ONE IN THE EYES OF GOD , AND HE DOES NOT NEED YOUR RELIGION , WHAT HE WANT FROM YOU IS YOUR HEART , AND WHAT YOU DO IN SECRET , IF WHAT YOU ARE IN SECRET IS TERRIBLE , IT MEANS YOU ARE ZERO IN FRONT OF GOD . YOU MAY BE ALHAJA OR PASTOR , IT CAN NOT TAKE YOU ANY WHERE , BUT YOUR ATTITUDE AND CHARACTER TOWARDS YOUR FELLOW BEING THAT IS IMPORTANT IN THE EYES OF GOD . RELIGION IS A CHOICE AND YOU HAVE CHOOSING THE ONE YOU LIKE , SO FROM NOW ON PLEASE DO NOT LET ME SEE YOU DRESS THE WAY YOU USED TO DRESS , YOUR HAIR MUST BE COVER, IF POSSIBLE I DO NOT WANT TO SEE YOUR FACE YOU SHOULD DRESS LIKE TALIBAN WOMEN. WISH YOU GOOD LUCK UNDER YOUR TALIBAN UNIFORM

    • mrs ohio GOD BLESS YOU FOR YOUR COMMENT! …… if you like scream jesus christ from morning to night, if you like go mecca every friday and scream allah if your heart is not pure or full of good intentions you ARE WASTING YOUR TIME!!!

  6. Whether you are a Christian oo,Muslim oo or pagan as long as your life revolves in treating people the way you will want to be treated and that covers a lot of ground and,live the life you are comfortable with and seek for saviour,At the end of this life, when we meet our Lord Jesus Christ and God he will be able to clear all smoke and arguments,till then,love your neighbour as yourself and world peace to all mankind.

  7. If you were to start practising Islam, it’s not just by mouth, you gon have to stop exposing ur body parts. Besides, before practising Islam, you have to understand it. May God help you and make you understand

    • @ Nicholas, No sir. there is nothing like half Muslim n half Christian. Half n half is hypocrisy. And such person is not consider a Muslim. Hope this answer your question.

    • you are perceived to this motion the lady explain her motion in order to let every one know that His Father was a Christian and Her Mother is a Muslim, and after His father death she finally change to Muslim Girl so not that their is something Half or no Half

  16. God ve mercy on you.how can you worship two Gods @ de same time.And who ever deceived anyone Dat Allah is de same as Jehovah God I serve,wise up woman b4 hell .

  17. John 14vs6 Jesus said unto him I AM THE WAY, THE TRUTH,AND THE LIFE: NO MAN CAN COME TO THE FATHER [GOD ALMIGHTY], EXCEPT THROUGH ME. [JESUS CHRIST] and not through Mohammed or anyone else.

  18. no
    matter what you do, people will always criticise you.. whats your
    problem with what she said bout being half a christain half a muslim?
    muslim believes in one God so does christians, muslims believes jesus is
    a prophet of God. so y d criticism? Hajia aishah pls just be ursef,ppl
    will always find smtin to say

  19. This is a piece of advice to lizzy anjounrin,ple don’t be a muslim by birth,by love,but by praticing.God himself also said in quran that,there is no any other religion except islam bestow to mankind.congrat aishat.

  20. Just wondering why these commenters won’t stop blaming this poor gal of what she chose to become.it is my business if I change frm being muslim to xtian or vice versa,let her be please, its her life, leave her dressing or τ̅he tattos she has on for her creator to judge. Babes, pls do anything ∂αt makes u feel good, talk to ur God in prayers & expect everything yield positive result 4 u. I wish u well dear…

  21. She will start bombing and killing non muslims bcos that’s all what all muslim converts does,example of. Micheal adebolajo in London that converted to muslim,d next thing he did was kill a man saying he was fighting for Allah

    • Dear wishers, Islam & Christianity is never d same bcs according to Quran “Prophet Isah” the one you cal Jesus Performed solat but not five times a day like wise other prophet performed solat . So 4 Christian to cal uself a good Christian u must do what Prophet Isah ‘Jesus’ did before u are fully called Christian. U see Islam the way and the truth 2 Paradise bcs Muslim follow the way of Prophet Muhammed while he was alive which is the Pillars of Islam
      1. Faith
      2. Solat (Prayer)
      3. Sakat (Arms to the less privilege)
      4. Ramadan (Fasting)
      5. Hajj (Mecca)
      So dear, submit you self today bcs Islam the only way to Paradise. Don’t allow anyone to mislead you .
      For my sister Lizzy (Aishat) change ur mode of dressing. Dressing like a good Muslim and not the nominal Muslim. Dress d way u wants to be addressed. May Almighty Allah be with u all d days of your life (Amin).
      Stop criticizing the person people of them knowing the truth
      Am very happy to be a Muslim.

  23. You Christian folks need to be quiet. You’ve always talked about being polite and tolerant. I don’t see that reflection in you. Aisha Anjorin aka Lizzy Anjorin is now a Muslim by choice. No one forced her to accept religion of Islam. she turned away from being Christian to being half Muslim and half Christian to being a full time Muslim. Her choice of religion must be respected. She made it plain that she had always love Islam at heart but her father was obstructing her choice of religion. God in His infinite mercy took her father away so that she could serve God Almighty in a true manner as thought by all prophets and messengers. So please you Christian folks must give this lady huge break.

    My advise to you Ms. Aisha Anjorin is you should care less about critics. You have chosen Allah and His religion of Islam. You have chosen Muhammad son of Abdullah (PBUH) as your prophet. You have now properly believe in Isa(Jesus- PBUH) son of Mary as prophet and messenger of Allah. Therefore, you owe no one apology. You are a Muslim that’s what count. The way Christians are hauling insults at you is one of the many trials one faces as a Muslim. But be not be heart-fainted. Stay strong and relate among those who believe as you. You will never lose. May God make it easy for you as you embark on eternal bliss. Amin

  24. realigion is a way of life wheather christen or muslim or whatever you call your self if your xracter is bad you are noting
    its only in africa that realigion is something in a developed nations at least the first 5 best nation in the world you see rrealigion has noting to do with their development
    just think very well religion has do do with poverty ,that is why we religious in this part of the world
    there is defrent btw being realigios and been godly
    you will just discurved that most of you that call jesus will end up in hell due to your bad xracter
    some of you that call muhammed will end up in hell deu to you bad xracter
    and apagan with good xaraxer will bewith god
    just see what is happen in the contry with all this our realigion weare the most curupt nation in the word

  25. Aisha, Allah loves you. You be insulted in so many ways, but please
    remain resolute in your faith. May Allah continue to bless you my sister.

  26. U can not deceive God, is she a good christian in d first place? U can not server God with world in you, either you are for Jesus christ or for devil, and Jesus christ was not a servant of God is his a son of God, because he was with God before heaven and earth begon, in john 1:1 in the beginnig was the word, and the word was with God, and word was God. The word this verse was talking about that was with God is our lord Jesus christ, accoding to book of matthew. Jesus said in the beginnig when my father is created heaven and earth i am there, and bible was existed over four thousand years ago, and God created us human being was so ungreatful they rebelled against God by comitted sin and God destroyed them all, that was the days of Noah, and he destroyed sodom and gomarah what makes you think he will not destroy this age? Jesus said to father, he said please let me go and die for dis people, because of love he have for us, the spirit inside this lady lizzy is the same spirit with sarah she can not waitted pacience with God promise, by giving hagar to abraham and son hagar begoten ishmeal become problem to the world today, 12decendant of ishmeal, muslims nations. Thousands of muslims where turning to God everyday by giving their lifes to christ, and someone that know the truth already turn from light to the darkness. Well i have message from God to muslims, leasten and be blessed. The lord said anybody that partake in quran will not even see his face not to even enter his kindom. Because the origin of quran is from the pit of hell, let me tell you something you dont know about your religion. In the beginnig they were saving God. And God promise abraham isaac not ishmeal, and because is isaac God promised, abraham asked hagar to left with her son, bcos ishmeal was bad inflence on isaac. And he is father of arab nation, they were still serving God bcos Moses first met God in there land by seeging God in a burning fire, thosaud of years before Jesus came, and after Jesus they were still fear God bcos their are many jewish in the land, one thousand one hundred years after the resturration of our lord Jesus christ, muhammed rebelled against christians and slains thousand of jewish in arab country and he turn people against the lord. Muslims was exist 900yrs ago. What happen here is revenge of what happen btween abraham,sarah and hagar so muhammed was now took revenge against christian after four thousand years, he was never called by God, instead he dance to the beat of devil. so bible was inspire by God, and quran was inspire satan. Satan rebelled against God in heaven and God cast him out of heaven, in earth here he used muhammed the heart of muslims against God. The word of God is edged sword if it tourch you is for you to amends your way before the lord, because Jesus is coming very soon when he comes are you sure you will go with him? God said nobody will see his kindom eccept trough Jesus christ, he as been givien one name that is above ever orther name that at the mention JESUS every knee must bow ever touge will confess that JESUE is lord. Bible let us to know that we shall understand better after death, but after death will be too late, for you to know all this you are hearing is truth but it will too late, bcos their is no repentance in the grave, for you too be alive today is to turn God. If there is anybody that want to give his or her life to Jesus should say after me LORD JESUS I HAVE COME BEFORE YOU TODAY HAVE MERCY ON MY SOUL FORGIVE ME MY SINS, BECAUSE OF YOUR BLOOD YOU SEILD FOR ME, SAVE MY SOUL FROM ENTERNAL DISTRUCTION AND WRITTE MY NAME IN THE BOOK OF LIFE IN JESUS NAME (AMEN). HE SHALL BE WELL WITH YOU

  29. Babe, it’s like you are a confused human being ? What has the death of your father got to do with your convert? If not for the sake of money or been second wife to a muslim millionaire I don’t think any other would have inspired you to be a Muslim.

    • if there is any body to read his or her Holy Book it Muslims cause most of them don’t have access to their Holy book rather the small piece of write the Holy book is only for the Imam not even all but has a christian i have my bible n i can read it whenever i want n if i don’t understand it i will pray to my God or go to my pastor for more explanation. Christianity is sweet no body is force or brain washing u anybody will say they are Christians but not following the way of Christianity and some don’t even go to church even this tatoo, piercing, e.t.c Christianity is against it. there was a time i wanted it but i am happy i was able to know the truth about it. whatever you need to know is in the bible about marriage, how to discipline your child, how to pray, how to fast, how to worship God Almighty everything am happy to be a christian many are called both few a chosen beware of what u r saying cause am not here to criticize anybody i have my Muslim and Christian friends we don’t pick on each other we are always happy. if anyone want to convert fine
