Beautiful Nollywood actress, Mercy Aigbe has finally given reasons why she converted to Islam after practising Christianity for years.
Aigbe converted to Islam following her marriage to filmmaker Kazeem Adeoti in the year 2022.
However, the actress while granting interview on TVC revealed that she converted to Islam because of her love for her husband.
Aigbe, now known as Hajiah Amminah, said her husband’s love is enough for her and his first wife to share.
She said: “I love my husband so much. I don’t think any woman would have gone through what I went through if it wasn’t for love. I didn’t have to. I meant I’m comfortable; I have kids. So, it is because of love that I remarried.
“I’m such a lover girl. I’m very emotional. I love love. I just decided on my own to convert to Islam because I love my [Muslim] husband so much. When it comes to religion, I’m a very liberal person. I love my husband so much and he is a very religious person. So, I just felt that after COVID-19, I was already struggling with going to church so I just decided to follow my husband’s religion.
“Converting to Islam made our bond tighter and sweeter. And it’s exciting for me because I’m learning the religion [Islam] and at the end of the day, we are serving one God.”
