To all of u my fans I read all ur comments but decided to let things cool down before replying, I appreciate those that encouraged me and to those that abused me I also appreciate u all. Point of correction d fake person dat u call ur self my cousin u want to tell me u av a cousin and u don’t know how many kids ur cousin has I av just a daughter I av never attended pastor Itonha’s church before I never had any close contact with this man of God in my life so u dat u call ur self my cousin I don’t even know u shows d kind of person u this Bidemi is u go about claiming to be what u are not and also dent people’s Image may God have mercy on u. Second u don’t believe all u read on d papers I never grant an interview saying dat Xtians pray through pastors dat is not true I grew up knowing so much about xtianity dat I can not be brainwashed, u don’t need any pastor to pray to ur God.
I also read in the bible that u should not judge others to my xtian Fans what happened to dat part of God’s message. Third I am not in any relationship with any Alhaji dat has wives neither am I planning to be a third wife to any Alhaji that is not also true. I have never come out to say I am an evangelist no its not true. You don’t believe all this journalists that want to sell their papers and dey believe d only way to do that is by writing scandals and by lying to u our fans and majority of u our fans will just go ahead and say all sorts of things. I have decided not to say anything initially but bcos of my image and bcos of d liar Bidemi dat says u are my cousin dat I av never met in my life and also to correct some wrong impression about me, well that is d price we pay for stardom.
I have not said xtianity is not peaceful or a good religion. I said I converted because I love Islam I have converted even before Liz Anjorin,I just don’t make noise about whatever I do. I did not go to any journalist to show off no I was sighted during Ramadan when I went for a lecture and dat should b my 3rd Ramadan.
Though I still go to church. For 1 year and few months now I av been practicing consistently and not bcos of any man. I am not dating any Alhaji. I converted d year I left my hubby, I av lot of Muslim friends even my ex husband knows I love Islam I have always love d religion when I was little bcos of d way my mum practiced d religion and my aunties. When I was going through my matrimonial issue d lady dat stood by me praying and Counselling me happen to be a Muslim I saw lot of things about d religion. As an adult I believe I av every right to choose what I like.
And I know God been a merciful God will direct our paths. I don’t need to be brainwashed by any one and to those hungry journalists looking for cheap publicity watch it so dat u don’t see d wrath of God. To those professional journalists lot of dem will call u when dey hear a rumour to confirm before publishing it, Allah will continue to bless u and u will not labour in vain.
To all my fans whether u av a good impression or bad impression I still love u all forget my religion and keep supporting my career and to those dat wrote R.I.P I wonder wat kind of human!
Will say dat to a living being like u dat is bad put ur self in my shoes well I will leave and not die Insha Allah. We are d reasons for religion crisis in Nigeria please put a stop to condemning other people’s Religion only God knows who d true worshippers are.
What we say about Others can make us loose heaven may Allah Subuhana Wata Allah grant us grace to make heaven. Jazacumulahi Kairan.
