Why I Converted From Islam To Christianity-Omotola Jalade-Ekeinde

Published

on

Islam

Very few people are aware of the fact that actress Omotola Jalade-Ekeinde was born a Muslim.

 

An lesser number of people even have a clue to why she converted from being Islam to a Christian.
The actress who was born in Kaduna might have given a clue to the reason she dumped her old religion.

Preaching religious tolerance, the mother of four who shared a picture of herself covered in a hijab revealed a little from her past.

Jalade-Ekeinde, wrote “Although I was born Muslim. Today I practice Christianity. However, growing up in Kaduna. I’ve witnessed some horrors that eyes should Never see. All because of Religious divides and intolerance. Our Faith should make us better Humans. Any Act that does not show love does not serve God or Humanity. Love your Neighbour …. AS YOURSELF. Peace.
That #MuslimChristianOndokadunaLagos girl.”

What could have led to Jalade-Ekeinde changing her religion, could it be because of the horrors she saw Muslim commit in Kaduna, she will definitely get to it eventually.

    oh! I’m not happy with this development, I believe all what you have seen or heard about the killings are done just to blackmail the beauty of Islam. Islam is a religion of peace. I pray may Allah guide you back to Islam…

    When you use a knife to kill, it’s never the knife’s fault butt the user’s. Muslim and Christian fighting should not be a reason to change your religion. Since the fight made her to accept Christianity then Christians too should accept Islam due to this…it doesn’t make sense to me. I think She needs freedom to act and do her runs as an entertainer and Christianity is the best religion for her.

    If she had truly understood what Islam is all about, she wouldn’t have converted to Christianity. I don’t why people are always blaming Muslims for something that some selected people maybe even terrorists did, but you can never hear them blaming Christians if some of them do something terrible. Everyone know that the highest number of people that have committed genocide were Christians. However, you don’t hear us Muslims calling all Christians as terrorists, but the moment one person or group of Muslims do such terrible thing, you will hear people saying “Muslims are terrorists”. Please people should try to be fair in whatever it’s they do.

    Islam is not a religion of peace, because Mohammad told you people that whoever does not believe in Islam deserve death that is where (JIHADS) comes in. But Christ thought us to love because God is love, without love in you there is no God in you. And you are from the devil the wicked one.

    Let me state it clearly that Christianity is not a religion but a life style. Anyone and i mean whosoever that decides to part of Christianity with the mindset of it being a religion is yet to be saved. No religion in the whole world has the ability to save anyone from the eternal damnation that awaits man in the after life, be it Christianity if you call it a religion or Islam. Religion can save no one, it rather will enslave you into some kind of ritual that will rather make you have a feeling of self-righteousness. No man with his self-righteousness will see the kindom of God but that man who has accepted the righteousness of God in christ jesus. it’s only his saving grace that can give you a place in his kingdom whether you’re born a Christian or born a Muslim, same applies to other religions.
    Both Christianity and Islam preach peace and yet in the world of today, we still have a lot of wickedness coming from both sides of religions. Does that not strike a chord in your spirit man to tell you that there is something wrong somewhere? My Christian and Muslim brothers and sisters including Omotola, It’s not about which religion you claim to be part of, it’s about whose kind of life you have chosen to live. Did Prophet Mohammed of the Islam preach peace during his days on earth? Did he also live a life of peace and love that he preached or a life of violence? Did many find love through him or did many die by his sword? can you truely testify of his total life of peace? If you can sincerely give true answers to these questions and think his kind of life is worth emulating, then follow him. On the other hand, Did Jesus Christ preach and love while he was on earth? Did he also teach the kind of life that is able to save? Did he also preach the kind of life that he lives? Did many find love through him? Did all die when he came or did he die for all to save them from death when he came? If you can give sincere answers to these questions, then wisdom demands you choose whose kind of life you ought to life you ought to live. Remember, is not religion that saves, but the life of truth. For me, I found truth in Christ Jesus, i chose his kind of life and i’ve decided to follow him. If yours’ is prophet Mohammed, then follow him, i only urge you to make sure whichever you choose is the truth, because only the truth has the power to make you free.

    GUD day everyone, if you really want to know why she converted to Christianity, and why u as a Muslim reading this should also convert to Christianity, JUST READ THIS: Quran 3:45-55. Remember, GOD created the universe through HIS Word( THE WORD). Quran 10:94. John 1:12. By the time u finish reading these few books in the Quran and this one verse in the book of John chapter one verse one and verse twelve, u will see the reasons why u too have to convert to Christianity as a Muslim.

    Everyone has a right to practice whatsoever religion he or she seems fit. What a lot of us consider as the right religion is subjective. No one! No one has the right to persecute or castigate anyone for their choice of religion.

    If you feel Islam is a religion of peace – then PRACTICE Peace, let’s cease to kill each other and if you feel Christianity is the way – then act like Christ and show the right examples.

    Let no one be afraid to practice his or her religion in any part of the country. Enough of the bloodshed pls.

    Am sorry dear, one thing, Allah said in the Qur’an, I gave you brain and education, one mistake you did is you haven’t read the Qur’an and bible, in the Bible Jesus was praying by sujud and all messenger were doing that and your doing that when your Muslim, and you’re a Christian, so tell if you will pray without sujud? who say that, think twice my dear. there is one way to go to God, and don’t mix two things, a Muslim and Islam, to me I don’t look Christians am looking Christian what is the meaning of Christian. Read the bible carefully and understand

    if your child changed a school you took her to, and you think that school is good for your kid. what would you do?
    of course you will advice your kid.
    so this is about telling her where the truth lies for her to choose from and not judging please.

    and to my dear convert, we don’t follow Islam by looking at the behaviours of Muslims. But, we follow it based on what is thought by our prophet and in the Holy Qur’an.
    let us use our power of reasoning and read the true scripture in order to follow the right path. thanks.

    The only way to see God is to convert. only JESUS can save.JESUS will judge mankind.
    You have disentangle yourself from a different world to a real world.

    she has read the Bible and that prompted her to make that spiritual decision.
    what ìs in the Quran that were not written from the Bible? Mohammad and her mother’s name is not in the Bible but Jesus and his mothers name and others are found in Quran.
    let our Christian sister alone. salvation is individualistic affairs.
    we pray that all Muslims convert to Christian in order to have peace in the world.
    if a muslim converts it becomes a problem.why?

I Will Soon Release A Movie Bigger Than Osofia In London-Nkem Owoh

Published

on

Nkem Owoh

Comic thespian and movie producer, Nkem Owoh, qualifies in all ramifications to be tagged a veteran of the Nigerian make-believe industry. Famed for highly successful movies such as Osofia In London, Stronger Than Pain, Ghana Music Go, and more recently Chief Daddy and Lion Heart, the actor spoke about his retirement from the movie industry, making a flick bigger than Osofia In London and what he hopes to fall back to after retirement in this interview with Lukmon Akintola.

You have been shooting movies with younger actors and actresses in recent times, how does it feel?

It feels good particularly when they think that you are retired, but other people are saying that you are still relevant. It feels good.

Are you really retired?

I am about to retire, but young movie producers are not allowing me to retire. And that shows that I am still relevant. When the younger generation says come we still need you, it means that there is still something in you that they cherish.

What has kept you going in the movie industry?

It is the ace, the ability to remain relevant that makes moviemakers still call me to come and work with them. That is what is still making me relevant in the industry. Moviemakers calling me shows that what we have done and what we are still doing is creating a very big and positive impact on younger generations. So, they calling me makes it look like they are grabbing something from what we have initiated and what we are doing.

You acted in some of the biggest flicks in the Nigerian movie industry; do you still have any major plan?

Now that we are almost at the retirement age, it is young producers who have to do creative things, and bring us in. To be honest with you, since we started this Nollywood thing and I happen to be one of the pioneers of the industry, I think we have done our own part. At least, when I look around and I see what Nollywood has become, it makes me happy. I will like to see more, but it is on the younger generations to create things that will involve us so that we can show the part of ourselves that has not been unveiled.

Are you satisfied with the crop of actors in the movie industry presently?

No, you cannot be satisfied with all of them. I am not satisfied with all of the things in the movie industry, but I don’t try to throw blames at them because of the situation of things in the country. Everybody is looking for how to feed. So, they try their hands here, they try their hands there. And until things start to stabilise, and people start to go to their own discipline things cannot be better. Some of them who do not have the talent to come into the entertainment industry are there. But if you have the talent, you have it in you. Just like me, I studied Engineering, but now I am in the entertainment industry. That means that there is a spark in me that entertains people. But because of the economic situation of the country and everything, people jump into what they are not supposed to get into, and that is why I said that I will not blame them. But I am not happy that up till now people haven’t found out where they belong.

What is your take on the movie industry?

I give them kudos for the state of the industry. If I check Hollywood and Bollywood, it took them a very long time to get to the stage they are now, but in a very short time, we are shooting the guns and people are hearing.

Can you tell us what you hope to fall back to after retirement?

Well, the thing is that I have already established one or two things. I have a school now; there are other things that I have. I have some private businesses even outside the shores of this country. So, I am too busy as it is, but if producers say that I am relevant, and they call me to act in a movie, I will always come.

When most actors retire, they end up setting up production outfits, is that your plan too?

I had a production company as far back as 2008. I have a studio, and as a matter of fact, the camera we used to shoot ‘Osofia In London’ was my camera. So, I have been established a long time ago. But as things are coming, you begin to retreat for other people to have space. If you continue to stay there, then you are trying to eat into other people’s time.

Tell us about your next big project.

There is something coming out very soon, but I won’t let the cat out of the bag. There is something in the offing now, and when it comes, it is going to be bigger than ‘Osofia In London’.

Please give us a hint about what it would be like?

It is going to be a blend of both international and local collaboration, just like ‘Osofia In London’. I know that you want me to give you more information, but this is a cliff-hanger, and we in the entertainment and drama industry like to leave cliff-hangers. When you get there, you will begin to anticipate, and that would arouse you and arouse people around you.

How Odunlade Adekola, Dayo Amusa, Others Stormed Premiere Of “Omoniyun”

Published

on

Omoniyun

What many originally perceived as a rush for the usual Black Friday sale quickly breathe a different meaning when several people and celebrities like Iyabo Ojo, Sotayo, Bimbo Thomas, Toyin Alausa, Odunlade Adekola, Muyiwa Ademola,  Seilat Adebowale and many other superstars startomo to troop in all-dressed clothes from the 1980s on Friday, November 29, 2019 at Ozone Cinemas in Yaba in the bustling city of Lagos for the Premiere of Dayo Amusa’s Psychological Thriller, Omoniyun.

Omoniyun

Set in 1987, Omoniyun is the story of a community nurse with unrivalled love for children and her radical fiancé, FIJABI, who wrestles a protected tyrannical prince, SODEKE, and his desperate loyalists, ELEMIDE and ROMILUYI, who threaten blood and death over the fate of a violated minor, FIYINFOLU, in a war that piques Human Rights against Tradition.

The proper film Premiere started at exactly 7:00 PM three hours after a musical performance from the Producer, Dayo Amusa.  A section of the red carpet looked like a picturesque scene ripped from a 1978 album of a sitting room; a land phone sits comfortably beside a gramophone and a well-cushioned loveseat.  When asked why the Producer had to go this far in premiering a movie on girl child advocacy, she simply said, ‘because every child is as precious as coral beads and must always be treated so.’
