10 Nollywood Actresses That Converted From Christianity to Islam

10 Nollywood actresses who converted to Islam from Christianity.

Several Nollywood actresses have abandoned their Christian faith in favor of Islam. These actresses do this for all sorts of reasons, and they've also adopted new names.

Moji Olaiya

The late Nollywood actress Moji Moji was born into a Christian family, and although she had a Muslim mother, she was Christian the way she was. After several marital crises, she converted to Islam.

Moji was married twice, and both marriages came to an end. The actress died as a Muslim and was buried in an Islamic ceremony. She adopted the name Rohimat.

Funke Arkindele

When Funke Akindele married Alhaji Kehinde Almaroof Oloyede, she converted to Islam. Because Oloyede is Muslim, Nikkai married Funke Akindele on May 24, 2012. She changed her name to Khadijat.

Vivian Metchie

Nollywood star Vivian was born to a Catholic father and a deeper life mother. She married a man who was a member of the Church of Salvation, but the marriage ultimately failed, leaving behind four children. She changed religion because at some point she was confused because various Christian churches had bad things to say about each other. She adopted the name Fareedah.

Liz Da Silva

Popular actress Liz Da Silva was considered a Christian until she allegedly fathered a child to an as-yet-unnamed Muslim man who was simply known as Olaoye. After her son was born, both Lizzie and her son converted to Islam. She adopted the name Aishat when her son was named Roheem.

Lizzy Anjolin

Elizabeth Anjorin, commonly known as Lizzy Anjorin, is a household name in Nollywood. As her name suggests, she grew up in a Christian family, but she found solace in Islam.

In 2013, she came forward to make it clear that she was a Muslim, and soon after she was revealed, she flew to Mecca for the Hajj. Her situation is strange because she says her mother is Muslim.

She has two Muslim names, Sekinat and Aishat, while her daughter's Muslim name is Rufaidat.

Liade Bakare

Laide Bakare was a Christian until she left her Christian husband and started dating Alhaji Tunde Oriwo, affectionately known as ATM. Ryder had to convert to Islam after marrying him and becoming his other wife. Ryder has a gold tooth, which she shows off to everyone.

Lola Alao

She is the latest addition to this list. Actress Lola Alao converted to Islam in July 2016, to the surprise of many. Arao was a Christian before his conversion. Alaao converted after her Muslim father was buried. She adopted the name Rohdiat.

Fathia Balogun

Actress Fathia Balogun was born into a Roman Catholic family. She later embraced the faith of cherubim and seraphine before marrying actor Sadie Balogon, when she converted to Islam and adopted the Muslim name Fatia. She holds the title of Islamic Sheikh, Atesin Se Adinni.

Mercy Aigbe

The other latest entry on the list is none other than the mother of two who just married a new lover. Mercy Aigbe and Kazim Adeoti married in a private ceremony. Since news of the marriage broke, Macy has shown off her new husband, who is said to be married to another woman. According to Islamic rites, Maisie Aigbe, like her husband, converted to Islam and adopted a new Arabic name, Minna.

Mo Bimpe

The wife of Nollywood actor Latif Dimeji converted to Islam after marrying late last year. The actress was once a devout Christian, but her marriage to a Muslim actor converted her to the religion. In a post where Adedimeji pledged love to his woman, he revealed that her Muslim name is now Rahmatullah.
