Filmmaker, AbdulRasheed Bello, popularly known as JJC Skillz has announced that he has returned to his father’s religion Islam.
The estranged husband of popular actress, Funke Akindele, made this known through a series of posts on Instagram.
He corroborated his announcement in a recent interview with Islamic online platform Muslims News.
JJC Skillz said he was originally born into a Muslim family but he never practised it as he chose to follow the faith of his mother.
Speaking to Muslims News, the musician said it was a design of God that he would finally embrace Islam.
He 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.”
JJC announced his separation from Funke in June 2022.
