Popular Yoruba actress, Liz Anjorin who converted to Islam last year after embarking on pilgrimage to Mecca has made a stunning revelation, saying that she ceased to be a Christian about eighteen years ago.
She also said that she converted to Islam as a result of the love she has for late mother.
Liz disclosed this, ahead of preparation for the launch of her new movie, “Kofo:The First Lady” and the marking of the 2nd year anniversary of her foundation, Lizzy Anjorin Foundation, which is billed to hold on Sunday, May 11, at Anchor Event Centre, Ikeja, Lagos.
According to the actress, who now bears the name, Aisha, she converted to Islam because of her late mother. “No man can make me convert to Islam. I converted to Islam because of my late mum. Something happened the day she passed on. I wouldn’t disclose that here. So, I went to Mecca to pray on her behalf,”she said. Describing life after her trip to Mecca as beautiful, Liz revealed that for the past eighteen years, she has never gone to any church to worship. “I have been a Muslim for long time now. You can never spot me in any social function wearing suggestive clothes.”
On her forthcoming event, Liz disclosed that, it would be the first of its kind in the annals of film premiere in Nigeria. According to her, legendary musician, King Sunny Ade will be on hand to entertain the cream of society who will grace the occasion with his evergreen songs.
Other line up includes staging a 10-minute magic show by Nike and Zitto Pellar as well as a drama (comedy) by herself, Ijebu and Baba Ijesha among other side attraction.
