I have found peace in Islam declares JJC Skillz

Nigerian singer and actor, JJC Skillz, says he has found peace in Islam.

The 45-year-old announced this in a series of posts on his Instagram page.
In a post, the musician said: “I was lost but now I’m found”.

In a recent interview, Skillz who was born Abdulrasheed Bello, said although he was born into an Islamic family, he never practiced it.

The singer said he opted for Christianity instead because of his mother.

“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 to Islamiyah but all I remembered about it was getting beaten. They used to scare us with hellfire so, I never practiced,” he said.

“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.

“When I was 14, I moved to England and I didn’t have anyone to direct me or teach me about Islam. Around that time, I got into music. I was just floating in the world. I was just living my life without recognising God.

“Because my mum is a Christian, I got acquainted with Christianity. It was during that period, Christianity was preached to me. I saw it as the religion of peace that Islam actually is.”

The songwriter has been in the news after he announced the end of his marriage last year from Funke Akindele.
