Singer, Khaid Reveals What Made Him Convert From Islam To Christianity
“Anabella” crooner, Sulaimon Shekoni Solomon widely known as Khaid whose name is fast rising in the Nigeria’s music industry, has revealed in a podcast why he converted from Islam to Christianity.
Khaid revealed that he was born into a mixed religion family: his father is a Muslim while his mother is a Christian. According to him, because his parents lived in a Muslim dominated area, his father despite being liberal, for pride sake, compelled him to be attending mosques at the expense of churches.
“They told my siblings and me that we can choose any religion we want. But we live among Muslims and my dad doesn’t want it to seem like he doesn’t have control over his children so he used to force me to go to the mosque”.
“At that time I was trying to please him so I was going to the mosque. But after some time, I switched and started going to church”.
He explained that he however has more connection to Christianity than he had for Islam; the reason he converted to Christianity and has remained a Christian.
“I was a Muslim before because my dad was a Muslim and my mum was a Christian. So, I just felt the connection to Christianity more”.
