Popular Nigerian actress Adunni Ade recently took her fans and followers on social media by surprise after coming out to talk about a part of her life that she hardly shines the spotlight on.
The actress noted that for long, she has avoided approaching the topic of religion because it is a very sensitive subject for her. She added that it is only those that are extremely close to her that know the religion she practices.
This was followed by the actress clearing the doubts of speculators and categorically stating that she is a practising Muslim. Adunni disclosed that she was born into a Muslim family and was raised as one.

"So for the curious ones who have been asking, Yes I am a Muslim. Born into a Muslim home and was raised as one. If you care to know, B2 in my WAEC Examination. I have a loving Muslim Father who has given his children the free will to choose any religion they like be it Christianity or Islam. My Mom is a Christian, though not a practicing one. My stepmom is a Christian, My stepsisters are Christians, my stepbrothers are Muslims," the actress wrote.
Speaking further, Adunni disclosed that at some point in her life she converted to Christianity and worshipped with MFM, RCCG, CLAM, CAC , among other Christian institutions. She, however, noted that while all this was going on, Islam never left her.
Adunni said for some years she was worried about what people will say if she returned to practising Islam. However, in December 2016, she returned to Islam and started practising again.
She said: "About 4 years ago, Dec 31st 2016, I decided I would live my life for ME. Me alone! I came back to Islam. I feel fulfilled. I’m happier. I have received more blessings this way. My Oldest son practices Islam, prays and fasts as well."
On her mode of appearance, the actress made it clear that she is free to dress however she likes because Islam judges by intentions of believers. She added that the revelation is not to seek validation, but for people to learn to live their lives without being worried about what others think.
