Actress Moji Olaiya Talks About Her Decision To Become A Muslim

Moji Olaiya has spoken out about why she made the choice to switch religions from Christianity to Islam.

The Nollywood actress talked about the issue with Encomium magazine, saying , “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.”

Olaiya also shut down reports that she converted because of a man, saying “That is the problem I have with people. When you say you are doing something, they believe a man must be responsible for it. No man influenced my decision to identify with Islam. I have just said it, my mother was an Alhaja before she converted to Christianity. Islam has been a religion I have always loved. I have been in-between Christianity and Islam but just recently I decided to embrace Islam fully and there is no regret doing so.”
