July 11, 2014 – Pictures: List Of 6 Nollywood Actresses Who Converted To Islam Over Christian Husbands Scarcity & Marital Problems

In this past 24 months, six actresses in the Nollywood movie industry have dumped Christianity for Islam.

Below is a list of top Nollywood stars who have converted to Islam over personal problem, marriage problems or lack of Christian suitors.

1) Vivian Metchie aka Fareedah

Her case is very unique. She was born to a Catholic father and a deeper life mother. She got married to a Redeemed Church member and now she has left Christianity over what she termed ‘Religious confusion’.

On why she converted to Islam, Fareedah said; “it is a personal decision. I understand the Koran more than the bible. All of a sudden, the Christian confusion was driving me nuts. My dad was catholic, my mum was Deeper Life, I married someone in the Redeemed Church and then all of a sudden, the few religions had something bad to say about each other. I just couldn’t take it anymore. A friend of mine who is close to me said that once you are grounded on the word, it wont be confusing. Unfortunately, maybe I wasn’t grounded in the word, but I still could see what I see. But in my quest and study and research, I don’t know: I was probably looking for peace. Yeah! That was what I was looking for and I found it in the Koran.”

2) Liz DaSilva now Aishat

Her case is very similar to Lizzy Anjorin, she dated Oshodi Boss, MC Oluomo for a while before eloping with younger Muslim guy. She claimed she change her religion for the sake of her son whom she named Roheem.

She got married to Olaoye last year and adopted the Muslim name Aishat.

3) Laide Bakare

After she broke up with her Christian husband over marital problem, she eloped with a Lagos-based wealthy Alhaji Tunde Orilowo aka ATM, she then converted to Islam.

Laide Bakare just like her contemporaries, embarked on the holy pilgrimage courtesy her man and has since remained a converted Muslim.

She has joined Alhaji Orilowo’s fleet of wives. As we speak, the man is on the run over a fraud case with EFCC.

4) Moji Olaiya

The latest on the conversion radar is Moji Olaiya.

She was born to a Christian father and mother. She is the son of veteran singer Victor Olaiya. Moji Olaiya reportedly dumped her three children with her husband and walked out of the marriage over what she called spousal abuse.

The actress said she found the religion quite peaceful, thus, her resolve to convert.

In her words, “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.”

5) Lizzy Anjorin now Aishat

The popular Yoruba actress and movie producer was born into a Christian family but she shocked her fans when she suddenly made a trip to Islamic holy land Mecca in Saudi Arabia for Hajj last year.

Quickly adopting the Islamic dress sense, Liz insists she has always been a Muslim all along but not known to many people who perceived her as a Christian even though she has nothing against been a Christian.

Prior to her conversion, she was rumoured to be dating an Alhaji introduced to her by MC Oluomo, NURTW boss in Oshodi, Lagos.

On why she chose Islam, Lizzy said “Actually, my conversion to Islam is not new, it’s only that people were not aware. I have been a Muslim for long. I even have a picture to support that. Although my name is Elizabeth, which is the Christian name my dad gave me because he was a Christian. Then, I also have a Muslim name, Aishat, given to me by my mother, who was a Muslim. Also, some from my mother’s family members also named me Sekinat. Even my daughter’s name is Rufaidat. So, I grew with the two religions. And being the only child of my parents, I was given so many names, including Egandogo, Omosolape, Akanke. My Badagry name is Yenukunmun, meaning Isoju ota ni nse maa se rere (I will excel in the presence of my enemies). In a nutshell, Islam has been in me for long. I only kept it to myself. It is my private life. Even during every Ramadan period, I give people food for fasting and also when they want to break the fast. I also fast. Not only that, I don’t normally expose my head during the period, but people don’t really read meanings to it, they always think my appearance has to do with a movie.”

6) Kemi Korede (Not So Popular)

She is not as popular as the above but she joined Islam due to Lizzy Anjorin’s influence.

She followed her to Hajj last year.  “they are both peaceful religion and practicing any of the two is to the glory of one God.” – said Korede

Darkness has no place to hide in the absence of light… All we need is prayer and thorough study of the word of God.

Religious argument is foolishness… Let’s all pray for God to guide us in the right path #shikenah.

  1. No right minded christian guy will marry these useless ladies. They have sold the best part of dem to men
    Like my friend will say, they have trade their bodies and now looking for a bus stop. That can never happen in Christianity without genuine repentance
    All these ladies are living in denial.
    they are not ready to face their sins, satan has confused their minds

    Please am not here to argue with anybody just leaving my opinion

    • And **** would like to argue with a **** like you!…
      “Like my friend will say, they have trade their bodies and now looking for a bus stop”, is your friend God?. Even Christianity wouldn’t allow such stupid comment of yours. So IMO, you don’t have a religion if you don’t respect others.

  4. They all av right to dir believe afterall ‘Olorun lo mo eni ton sin/it’s only God who knows who & who is truely serving Him!’ Ejo nbe l’orun arodake/Dir’s judgement in heaven for everyone!

  5. i wish u girls well.Let them call you Ashewo(prostitute/whore) or anything they like.U are not all confused u know more than them.They don’t c more than the four corners in a room.Many success to come your way.Ramadan Kareem

  6. I rather pity d guy and not blame dem religion aside, they have lost all sense of direction

  7. I don’t understand why some people cant just count their losts and move on. You barely see Muslims throw insults like these. Besides, Allah does not hold new reverts responsible for their old sins.. The moment one becomes Muslim, we believe their sins are forgiven and wiped out (except for money they owe others). That must be paid. But sins are forgiven and they become new baby.

    It was reported that Prophet Muhammad(SAW) said a new Muslim prayer is accepted and answered faster. That’s why whenever someone becomes Muslim, people want him or her pray for them. If only baby can talk you could ask them to pray for you. Such prayers are answered faster.

    PLEASE STOP RAINING INSULTS AND BLACKMAILS ON THESE PEOPLE. After all, they chose to be Muslims freely. No one forced them as media would always want us to believe.

  8. Hmmm…this is Confusion of the highest order! How could growing-up adults Christians in Nollywood Entertainment Industry compromised their faiths in Christ Jesus”Our Lord & Saviour” simply because of Suitors…ooh! Probably,they are still acting, i suppose!

  9. Religion is religion. It is the same God we are worshiping but in different ways. But, why is it that when a Muslim woman marries a Christian man or converts to Christianity a death sentence is passed on her like what happed in Sudan? This goes to debunk the argument that Muslim is a religion of peace. Christians do not kill any Christian lady that converts to Islam or marries a Muslim woman. Babangida is a Muslim but married a Christian lady; Mamman Vatsa is a Muslim but married a Christian woman. There are lots of them. Let those who argue that Islam is a peaceful religion tell us why the reverse is the case if a Muslim woman marries a Christian man.

  11. The African is very confused, both the men and the women. Religion is now a force to be reckon with when marriages are involved. It is a shame that we, as black people don’t still understand the negative impact of religion on us. The fact of the matter is, we don’t think and we are quick to accept anything coming from the outside world. Everyone in continent Africa know full well that religion was introduce into Africa, bearing in mind that we had our own religion at that time. We were so stupid to accept the foreign religion over ours because we are so brain dead to to accept that ours was not good. The believe that Allah and or God exist is a myth. God or Allah does not exit and never was. If they did exist, the world will be a better place because they are suppose to have so much power to correct anything wrong. We need to go back to our African Gods and maybe things will work out for us. Black Africans pray more than any group in the world but hopelessness is on the increase with every passing day. There is something wrong with use. Why do we hate ourselves? Why do we have such a low self-esteem to the point that we are so happy if a white person validate anything we do? Why do we think that religion should play a roll on how we treat each other? What is it about us that prevents us from thinking outside the box?

  12. Africans are the only people on earth that give foreign names to their children in Africa. On the other hand foreigners that live in Nigeria stick with their ethnic names of where they come from. A Name is a symbol of pride of a people in a given country. At the present, many kids cannot speak their Nigerian ethnic dialect in Nigeria and their parents see nothing wrong with that but on the other hand, kids of foreigners living in Nigeria speak their countries dialect fluently. What went wrong with us? I used to think the more educated people are the better and unfortunately that has proven not to be true and in fact the educated ones are the most hopeless. But why is that? Can we say our educational system might be the problem? Or could it be that our culture that is at fault because the culture itself remain the same without changing as the world changes? Why is it that we don’t care for each other as a people? Why so much hate in the land? Why are we so good at looking at everything from the religious and ethnic windows? I hope we can find answers to all these problems that should not be problems.

  13. ******May Allah forgive you for the blasphemy passed on your creator denying His existence.Have you ever pondered who fashioned you the way you are?putting every faculty of senses at the right place and with the right quantity?You had beeter retrace your steps before you regret coming to this world.*****.They have made their choice and that’s best for them

    • Wale, please prove to me that there is God. Just because you have been spoon fed with religion by your parents from birth, does not mean there is God. Christianity or Islam did not originate in Africa my friend and am sure you will agree with me. Now, Christianity and Islam both of them are about 1500 years old while the continent of African is million of years old which mean it is the oldest continent on mother earth. How come all of a sudden these two religion that were introduce by the Portuguese and Spanish for Christianity and the Arabs from Arabia for Islam happen to be an African religion. Don’t be lazy my friend, go out there and research these things out. The information are out there and it is unfortunate that some Africans I will say the vast majority of them are just damn too lazy and don’t take some time to read books of value. Most African don’t even know their history to say the least. I am sure the likes of you will equally say and agree Mongo Park discovered river Niger. My friend you need to disabuse yourself and embark on ready any book you can find about continent Africa and Nigeria and if you need for me to send you books from the U.S, I will and am being honest about that. Send my your address that is all you need to do. Have a good night and take care of yourself.

  14. lol,they are really after money i must tell you the truth,we have so many young muslim out there,but am sure they wont go fo those young muslim but rather go after big man alhaji,i pray they repent before its too late for them

  15. Seriously Amanda, muslims don’t insult christians? you are right because the ball is your court. @ Mariam you dont know what you are talking about, because more muslims convert to christain than this confused individuals. You shall know the truth and the truth shall set you free. These people were born to christian family that does not make them a born again christian.

  20. wait o why has anyone not responded to Adekunle? as he as rightly said dont fight Islam or muslims, just read those bible verses he listed. alhamdulilahi im a muslim.

  21. Never seen a Nigerian christian convert to a Muslims. Is this for the sake of Money or sex. Muslim men are far worst than Christian men because many of them married more than 1 wife as is in religion and many cheat and keep wives all over. see what they did to bokoharam young girls. you mean you will convert because of love for them.

    May god forgive and satan has used their minds.

  22. These ladies are more than confused. If Islam is peaceful where did boko haram take their killing from? is Koran two? One peaceful and the other violent? These ladies were going to churches to seduce pastors, how could they hear the word of God not to talk of practicing it.

  23. ur ways r doom ladies open or heart n ur eyes b4 is too late.even Christian s dat fail to do d holy will of God will go to hell nt to talk of those dat don’t even knw God.

  24. For all your grieviences i support no one and also oppose no one for wher there is an intension there is a will, i urge, animate, incite, instigate all of u to stop saying sinful words, those girls hve all change there intension, mind, to change there life so y ar u embrasing them, i believe that there sin have been wipe out for the feet they use to walk to alfa or iman or sheilk and a words that also out from there mouth. All you have to do now is nothing but something and the something is to assist them with prayer. Thank u all.
