Nigerian rapper and producer, Abdulrasheed Bello, identified professionally as JJC Skillz, has returned to Islam, his father’s faith.
The estranged husband of common actress turned politician Funke Akindele, made the announcement in a sequence of posts accompanied by an interview with an Islamic on-line platform, Muslims News, on his Instagram web page.
JJC Skills, who narrated how he was born into an Islamic household, but by no means practised it as he selected to comply with his mom’s religion, mentioned, “I was misplaced, but now I’m discovered, I ask you for your pardon and effectively-being in this life and the subsequent.
“O Allah, veil my weaknesses, set at ease my dismay, and preserve me from the front and behind and on my right and my left and from above as I take refuge with you lest I be swallowed up by the earth.”
Speaking with the Islamic on-line platform, the singer said that it was a design of God that he would lastly embrace Islam.
“I was born a Muslim – by name AbdurRasheed. My father, Bello, is a Muslim but my mother is a Christian. Then I used to go Islamiyah but all I remembered was being beaten. They used to scare us with hellfire, so I never practised. It’s God’s design that I will return to Islam. I thank Allah for sparing my life”, he maintained.
