  1. Beautiful Women. Y’all Welcome.

    Misconception Some Non-Muslims Are Having Is Judging Islam By Current Affair/Events. That’s Very Unprofessional.

  2. The common trend here is that they are prostitute using Islam to cover up
    If you look up their history, they are husband snatchers and confused women.
    Sorry for you

  3. Amanda, Amanda i know you are happy now and you will be first to comment in this. but In my opinion I don’t think this is a true conversion. This conversion of this ladies to islam is purely base on greed. The question is what exactly is driving them to convert to islam? Marital woes! A true and honest conversion to any religion is,if the person converting appreciate the doctrines,teachings being taught and the attitudes displayed by the members of that religious organisation, It is only by then one could be said to truly convert to a particular religion. But as it is now,the outstanding reason for their conversion is fixing of their marriages. They rush in quickly,one will not be surprise to see them rush out with time if their marriages is latter having problems. To me they are still sitting on the fence,they can latter fall back to where they belong.

  4. A real born again Christian can NEVER backslide to islam or any other religion on the surface of the Earth for that matter even at a gun point.

    These ones were never Christians in the first place, mere Church goers.
    Christianity simply means: Acceptance of the Lord Jesus Christ as ones Lord and Saviour not just being born into a Christian‘s family or merely attending Christian‘s gatherings.

    Your Father is a Pastor does not guarrantee your convertion. YOU MUST BE BORN AGAIN.

    The name CHRISTIAN simply means:- without “CHRIST“ I Am Nothing.

    I congratulate these lost sheep on their new faith/fate.
    As I always tell them: I JUST HOPE THEY DON‘T REGRET THEIR DECISION ON THE LAST DAY? When it would have been too late to come back home?

    THE LOST SHEEP OF NOLLYOOD

    I take a stroll…

  5. Amanda can you honestly believe that these people’s conversion was as a repentance? Conversion without repentance profits nothing to the soul,at best a jamboree. Amanda I can see your zeal,sincerity and beautiful passion for your religion. I had similar passion,zealousness and sound knowledge of Islam like you for over 28years. But there came a time when I asked myself what if Christ is the only way to reach the kingdom of God? That is my turning point,my soul was trouble,this time I was only interested in saving my soul from destruction in eternity not promoting any religion. Mind you God is not interested in any religion, and no religion can take you to the kingdom of God. So my sister don’t jubilate or encourage the Nollywood stars jumping from one religion to the other
    I will rather mourn for them for there is still no evidence of repentance,regeneration or salvation in their lives.

  6. In matters of the heart many women lean towards adopting the religion of their current spouse. Besides, I understand the property laws, be it after divorce or widowhood are quite favorable to women in Islam so it is possible some women might convert for such considerations.

  8. I thing they”re matured enough to choose what they think is the best for themselves either they converts ‘bcos of wealth or faith. So, no need to tell us Islam/Christianity is the right religion, if u like u can convert from Christianity to Buddhism nobody will query u ‘bcos there’s freedom of religion in Nigeria. Gbam!!!

  9. if you look at all of them you’ll see that they are once Tribe or related the smae which which is Yoruba Tribe, they are *******,

  10. First of [email protected] Joe, thank you for your wisdom. May you never be found wanting on the Last Day!

    Like Endure suspects, I don’t believe that what we have here is genuine conversion. Driven by a desire for connubial needs and material gains, they all have changed their religion without a view at eternal things.

    That is by the way. A is a true Christian who is not merely a churchgoer can NEVER convert to any other religion. Jesus did not mince words when He said that He is the only way(John 14:6). In view of this holy truth, all of them six converts, together with all professors of religions other than Christianity, are on the way to their damnation.

    Christian families have missed their role. Many families do not pray together. But it is at the place of family devotion that Christian parents can admonish and instruct their children on the deep truths of the bible in the presence of God. A child who is well-instructed by his parents is less likely to jump from one religion to another. But sadly, many parents have left this role for the church. And these days that many churches are out for money business instead of souls business, what chance do we have to hear the gospel truth from them? Moreover, who do we think that children believe more, the pastor or their parents?

    When Jesus said that judgement would start from the church, He wasn’t necessarily referring to fake pastors, but to Christians who have failed in their responsibility. Christians are the only people that have the truth. And Jesus said that to whom much is given, even much is expected. Therefore Christians who fail to deliver should expect stiffer judgements on the last day.

  11. They were never christians in the first place. I don’t think they belong to any religion, 2moro they will still leave islam when a rich hindu billionaire ask for their hand in marriage. Just imagine that of Laide Bakare, she was forced to convert before the rich alhaji now ask for her hand in marriage. Na long throat dey worry all of them! They want to reap where they did not sow.

  12. Save me ************* please. Why are you judging them?. Conversion to Islam in itself is REPENTANCE. I would imagine you know better than that since you claimed to have had 28 years of knowledge of Islam. I know that’s sarcasm and typical of ***********.

    Y’all fond of saying “I used to be Muslim”. That’s old missionary tactic.

    CONVERSION to Islam wipes off previous sins except for money you owe. And maybe y’all missing the point. A Muslim can not be Muslim if he or she does not believe ******Get that right.

  13. Oke Joe and Hunter, may you continue to be a glorious vessel in the hand of the Almighty…

  14. Abeg they should all go and sit down somewhere, imagine liz anjorin born into a christian home sayg her mother named her sekinat, why are u all deceiving urselves, u are not surposed to join any religion because of d benefits involved, other than d relationship u want to av with God.

  15. Islam is the problem of the world today.islam offers only one thing to its adherent,sex and women. the call it virgins for slaves. these 6 ladies you mention are just fulfilling that…

  16. I find it interesting that most of these ladies became Muslims in order to marry some wealthy alhaji that already has a wife. True Christians that walk in the Word could never convert to anything else cos that’s the only religion where you actually have a father child relationship with God. I’ve seen transgendered gays, atheists, people of other religions had encounter with Jesus and turn back, not because they felt like but because they actually had a real life encounter that births peace. I’ve never heard of any other religion ever doing this. Just arguments with no proofs.

    The truth is Jesus is real. And the Word of God is alive. When you find yourself as not just a christian that goes to church living like an unbeliever but one that actually walks with God and has a genuine relationship, there’s nothing on this earth that can make u turn back from that. Is it the guidance you get from the Holy Spirit or the Word that is there as a path finder that I would say is not enough for me.

    The assurance there is in Christ more than enough. But the truth is the things of the Spirit is too deep for ordinary minds to comprehend. It’s beyond religion. It’s the relationship that brings out the Juiciness in Christianity.

    Jesus loves you all

  17. i just loved who posted this with the caption “latest trend”… i strongly believe it is a new way among them to be welcomed into a religion that accept anything…. including” killing for Allah ” as proclaimed by islamist religious sect

  18. MARRIAGE OR SINGLE , SINGULAR OR DOUBLE HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH BEING RELIGIOUS OR COVER YOUR HEAD OR WEARING BRA ONLY HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH GOD .

    YOUR CHOICE IS YOUR CHOICE, GOD IS NOT THE ONE THAT WILL HELP YOU CHOOSE WHO YOU SHOULD MARRY.

    IT IS YOUR OWN GODDAMN BUSINESS EITHER YOU ARE ISLAMIYA OR KIRIYO , THAT DOES NOT MAKE YOU A BETTER PERSON OR LET YOUR MARRIAGE LAST FOREVER.

    BEING RELIGIOUS OR BELIEVING IN OLUGBALA OR SALAMAUHAMAGURU DOES NOT MEAN YOU CAN NOT HAVE A BREAKDOWN LIKE THOSE WHO ARE NOT RELIGIOUS, OR STOP BOKO OR ISIS FROM KILLING ANYONE THOSE WHO ARE RELIGIOUS.

    THERE WAS A PRIEST WHO HAVE JUST BEEN BEHEADED , MAY I KNOW WHY HE WAS NOT SAVE BY HIS RELIGION.

    THERE ARE SO MANY RELIGIOUS PEOPLE WHO HAVE DIED BETWEEN JUNE AND JULY , BUT THEIR RELIGION DID NOT STOP THE WORKERS OF INIQUITY FROM KILLING THEM.

    BEING RELIGIOUS HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH GOD , BUT WHAT YOU HAVE DONE BEHIND CLOSE DOOR THAT IS IMPORTANT.

    PAYING TEN PERCENT CAN NOT SAVE YOU FROM BOKO OR ISIS. GOD DO NOT NEED BRIBE AND WEARING HIJAB OR DRESS LIKE TALIBAN CAN NOT SAVE YOU FROM ISIS .

    SO, I WOULD LIKE TO SAY NOTHING IS NO MORE A YARDSTICK. WHATEVER YOU LIKE YOU CAN BE WHO CARES.

  19. Welcome to beautiful beginning, you are very lucky to discover the true religion…ISLAM IS RELIGIOUS OF PEACE.
