"Why I Converted To Islam" - Moji Olaiya

In an interview with Encomium magazine, Nollywood actress Moji Olaiya opened up about her conversion from Christianity to Islam which she did about a year ago.

"Honestly, Islam is a peaceful religion. The aspect I love most is that you don't need any pastor to get closer to God. You don't really need anybody to pray for you. You can always pray on your own and Almighty Allah will answer your prayer without any intermediary. I have been doing that since I became a Muslim and it has always worked for me. " she said. 

Debunking claims that a man she’s dating influenced her decision, she said
“That is the problem I have with people. When you say you are doing something, they believe a man must be responsible for it. No man influenced my decision to identify with Islam. I have just said it, my mother was an Alhaja before she converted to Christianity. Islam has been a religion I have always loved. I have been in-between Christianity and Islam but just recently I decided to embrace Islam fully and there is no regret doing so.”
