I Cannot Sleep Again Since I Converted To Islam – Lola Alao

The barrage of reactions that trailed the news of the conversion of popular Yoruba actress, Lola Alao, from Christianity to Islam is no doubt bewildering the actress.

The actress in a recent chat with Punch explained that she could not understand why people made a fuss about her conversion stating that she had always had a Muslim background. Her words:

“I don’t know what the hullabaloo is all about. I am from a Muslim background. My father was a Muslim. My grandfather was Muslim. My father was Lasisi Alao. There is no big deal in this. The religion is not new to me. I chose to follow my mother before; and now I decide to go back to Islam, is there a problem?

“Fathia Balogun was a Christian but she changed. Bukky Wright was also a Christian and she changed to Islam and nobody has tried to crucify them. How come my own is different? I have not rested. I cannot sleep again. People are saying different things since they heard the news.”

Lola Alao also dispelled insinuations that she converted to Islam because she wanted to marry an ‘Alhaji’. She maintained that she is happily married to a Muslim husband.

“I am happily married, I am not looking for a husband and my husband is even a Muslim. I was even a Christian before he married me. Nobody forced me into this religion.”

Lola had yesterday July 22, confirmed her conversion on Instagram when she wrote:

“Salaam alykun to all my wonderful friends and fans, May almighty Allah grant u all your heart desires. i just want everyone to know that i was born in to a Muslim home my late farmer’s name is Lasisi Alao, so i reverted back to my root through Alhaji Yusuf Adepoju (Acadip) May almighty Allah bless him and all my wonderful friends and fans…. Ťhanks love you all.. Rohdiat Omolola Alao Ajibola.”
