Months after Yoruba actresses Liz Da Silva and Liz Anjorin reverted to Islam, another Nollywood actress, Moji Olaiya dumped Christianity and converted to Islam saying it is a religion of peace.

“Honestly, Islam is a peaceful religion. The aspect I love most is that you don’t need any pastor to get closer to God. You don’t really need anybody to pray for you", Moji Olaiya, the single mother of one, said while talking to Encomium magazine.

"You can always pray on your own and the Almighty Allah will answer your prayer without any intermediary. I have been doing that since I became a Muslim and it has always worked for me", she added.

She also debunked claims that a man she’s dating influenced her decision to convert to Islam.

“That is the problem I have with people. When you say you are doing something, they believe a man must be responsible for it. No man influenced my decision to identify with Islam", she said.

The actress, known for Omo iya meta leyi (2009), Nkan adun (2008) and Sade Blade (2005), also said she was born by a Muslim mother who was an Alhaja but she later married a Christian man and converted to Christianity.

"I have just said it, my mother was an Alhaja before she converted to Christianity. Islam has been a religion I have always loved. I have been in-between Christianity and Islam but just recently I decided to embrace Islam fully and there is no regret doing so", she said.
