In an interview with TVC News, well-known Yoruba film actress Mercy Aigbe explained her decision to convert from Christianity to Islam.
She said that she is a 45-year-old lady who is accountable for her own actions and that she converted to Islam out of love for her spouse in a video that Instablog9ja put on their official Instagram page.
In her statement, she said, “I’m comfortable, I have kids, it’s because of love that made me remarry.” I’m such a lover girl, I’m very emotional, and I just love everything about being in love. I’m a 45-year-old, I’m responsible for my actions, and I converted to Islam because of my husband.
When it comes to religion, I’m a very liberal person, and I love my husband very much. My husband is very religious as well, he prays, and he’s someone I admire a lot, so I just felt that I needed to follow my husband’s religion, and it actually made our bond tighter, and it’s exciting for me because I’m learning the religion.
