Popular Yoruba actress, Lola Alao, almost broke the internet when the news hit the social media that she had switched from Christianity to Islam.
But in an exclusive chat with Saturday Beats, Lola said she wondered why there should be so much frenzy that she became a Muslim as she disclosed that she came from a Muslim background.
“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 to become a Muslim; 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,” she queried.
