Controversial Nollywood Yoruba actress, Liz Anjorin, has been away from the movie scene for sometime now. Well, Liz is back and her latest movie is set to drop in May. In a recent interview she spoke extensively about her controversial conversion from Christianity to Islam. Here are the excerpts:
There’s this rumour that it’s the man you want to marry that made you convert to Islam
I converted because of my mum. No man can make me change to Islam.
Why did you convert then?
People are getting it wrong. Because I travelled to Hajj did not mean I just converted. I’ve not been to church in the past 18 years. If any pastor has ever seen me in his church, he should come out and say it. I’ve been a Muslim for long. My daughter’s name is Rufaidat. I had her when I was in the North.
But the man you want to marry is a Muslim?
He’s not. He’s not. For real, he’s not. He was not and he’s not. I went to Mecca because of my mum, because I love her, something happened the day she died, and I was like oh my God, I need to pray for this woman, I need to do something special for her.
You said something happened the day your mum died. What happened?
