Igbo Nollywood actress Vivian Metchie says she converted to Islam because Christianity is “confusing”
Nollywood Actress Vivian Metchie who opened the floodgate of conversion to Islam in Nollywood few years ago has revealed how she recovered from a strange illness that almost took her life 4 years ago.
The one-time popular actress converted to Islam after her husband left her in 2014.
The actress recently took to the social media to shower encomium on her fellow actress and devout Muslim Iyabo Ojo for coming to her rescue when she needed help the most.
According to her, almost all her so-called friends abandoned her and Iyabo Ojo was the one who came to her rescue.
See what she posted below:
Shortly after she recovered from the illness induced by her marriage crash, the actress converted to Islam.
A quick check with 3 top Nollywood sources revealed that Vivian who was left shattered by the crash of her 11 year old marriage became uneasy with her circle of Christian friends after they refused to help her .
She later developed intimate bond with her Muslim colleague, Iyabo Ojo, who eventually introduced her to Islam. Her adopted Muslim name is Fareedah.
Speaking with Yes! Magazine on her conversion, Ms Metchie said it was a personal decision she had to take…
Yeah it is personal. I understand the Koran more than the bible. All of a sudden, the Christian confusion was driving me nuts. My dad was catholic, my mum was Deeper Life, I married someone in the Redeemed Church and then all of a sudden, the few religions had something bad to say about each other. I just couldn’t take it anymore. A friend of mine who is close to me said that once you are grounded on the word, it wont be confusing. Unfortunately, maybe I wasn’t grounded in the word, but I still could see what I see. But in my quest and study and research, I don’t know: I was probably looking for peace. Yeah! That was what I was looking for and I found it in the Koran”.
