Actor Jim Iyke has spoken out about his alleged Islam conversion.
The actor made headlines after it was claimed that he had abandoned his faith in favour of Islam.
A Twitter user stated that he had heard the veteran had converted to Islam.
While congratulating Jim Iyke, he said, “I heard that the popular Nollywood actor Jim Iyke has reverted to Islam. Alhamdulillah!
“Welcome to Islam, religion of peace. We welcome you wholeheartedly.”Jim Iyke took to Instagram hours after the news went viral to debunk it.
The actor, referring to the reports as “aimless rumours,” revealed that the photos of him in Muslim attire making the rounds were from a film he shot in Ghana.
He stated that, despite his admiration for all religions, he would always be a Christian.
“I felt it is necessary to address the elephant in the room that has been making the rounds lately. Usually, I don’t pay attention to these aimless rumours because they aren’t my cup of tea but certain lines shouldn’t be crossed.
“I made a movie in Ghana called ” Zanku boys” which would be out in July. The movie is about religious fanatics, someone took the pictures and it ended up with random bloggers who said I have converted.
“I respect all religions but I have no intention to convert my faith”, he stated.
