Adekunle Gold Reveals Why He Left Islam For Christianity – Not many people know that YBNL’s star singer Adekunle Gold was once a Muslim before he converted to Christianity.
The Sade star is quoted as saying in a recent interview that he became a Christian after he followed a girl to church. “I followed a girl to church and found that I became a Christian instead,” he said. “That was in 2004 and I have remained a Christian ever since.”
He revealed his father initially wasn’t too pleased with the decision, but that he accepted it later on. “My father didn’t like the idea initially but later everyone accepted me for who I am. I am cool being a Christian.”
He added that his parents had always supported his career, calling them his number one fans. “I was a lover of music and I grew up listening to a lot of sounds. While at the Lagos Polytechnic, I would always run to record songs even when I started working, I was like that too and my parents didn’t understand what I was doing. I continued this until I dropped ‘Shade’ which became a big break. They support my vocation and are my number one fans.”
