Nollywood actress Lizzy Anjorin has on her Instagram recounted how she converted from Christianity to Islam.
In a four post series, Anjorin began with how she heard the news that her mother had passed.
She wrote about how 3 churches had refused to have her mother buried in their cemetery because, she said, she wasn’t a member of their churches.
While she loves and is grateful to her Christian brothers and sisters who have opened doors for her, she concluded, she has never regretted being identified as a muslim.
See her story below:
