Nigerian rapper and producer, Abdulrasheed Bello, popularly known as JJC Skills, has announced his return to his father’s religion, Islam.
The former husband to famous Nigerian actress, Funke Akindele disclosed this on his Instagram page on Thursday.
He said, “I was lost but now I’m found. O Allah, I ask you for pardon and well being in my religious and worldly affairs and my family and my wealth. O Allah, veil my weaknesses and set at ease my dismay and preserve me from the front and from behind and on my right and on my left and from above. And I take refuge with You lest I be swallowed up by the earth”.
The musician during an interview with an Islamic online platform, Muslims News, said it was a design of God that he would finally embrace Islam.
JJC Skills said: “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.”
