“I am happily married” Actress Lola Alao Dispels Rumours Of Switching Religions For An Alhaji

In a new interview with Punch’s Saturday Beats, Yoruba actress, Lola Alao, dispelled rumours that she recently converted from being a Christian to Muslim because of a rich “Alhaji”.

The wife and mother said, “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.”

Speaking on the controversy generated by her conversion, she said, “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.”
