Jim Iyke, a Nollywood actor, has spoken out about his conversion to Islam.
On Wednesday, it was reported that the actor had converted to Islam.
As a result, several Muslims have welcomed him into their faith.
In a video posted to his Instagram page, Jim Iyke responded by dismissing the reports, saying he had no intention of ever converting to Islam.
The viral photographs that sparked the claim, he claims, were taken from a film he’s currently filming in Ghana.
“Let me quickly address the elephant in the room before returning to my specialty.” I believe it is vital for me to address a recent rumor.
“I did a film in Ghana on religious fanatics, and someone stole a photo from the film and claimed I converted my beliefs.”
“I accept all religions and have no desire to convert my faith at any time.” I’m completely dedicated to my faith. “I don’t know why people do these things, but there is a line that should not be crossed,” he stated.
