JJC Skillz returns to Islam
AbdulRasheed Bello, better known by his stage as JJC Skillz, has revealed that he has converted back to his father’s religion of Islam.
The ex-husband of a well-known actress, Funke Akindele, announced this via a number of posts on his verified Instagram account and confirmed it in an interview with Muslims News, an Islamic online publication, on Thursday.
According to JJC Skills, he was raised in an Islamic family but never practiced Islam since he preferred to adhere to his mother’s beliefs.
I was lost, but now I’m found O Allah, I ask You for Your pardon and well-being in this life and the next.
O Allah, veil my weaknesses and set at ease my dismay, and preserve me from the front and behind and on my right and my left and from above, and I take refuge with You lest I be swallowed up by the earth.
I was born a Muslim – AbdurRasheed by name. My dad, Bello is a Muslim but my mum is a Christian. Back then I used to go Islamiyah but all I remembered about it was getting 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.
I am so happy I found Islam again because it has given me peace. It has given me direction and focus. I was truly lost but now, I am found.
The musician revealed in an interview with Muslims News that his decision to finally convert to Islam was God’s plan.
JJC Skillz followed Christianity, his estranged wife Akindele’s religion, when they were still married.
