Why I Converted To Islam – Mercy Aigbe

Nollywood actress, Mercy Aigbe has finally opened up on why she converted from Christianity to Islam.

New Telegraph recalls that the 45-year-old actress had converted to Islam following her marriage to filmmaker, Kazeem Adeoti in 2022.

Speaking in a recent interview with TVC, Aigbe said that she converted to Islam because of her love for her husband.


When asked during the interview, if she sometimes feels the need to secure her husband’s love all to herself, leaving out the first wife, Aigbe responded and said, her husband’s love is enough for her and his first wife to share.

She said, “I love my husband so much. I don’t think any woman would have gone through what I went through if it wasn’t for love. I didn’t have to. I meant I’m comfortable; I have kids. So, it is because of love that I remarried.

“I’m such a lover girl. I’m very emotional. I love love. I just decided on my own to convert to Islam because I love my (Muslim) husband so much. When it comes to religion, I’m a very liberal person.

“I love my husband so much and he is a very religious person. So, I just felt that after COVID-19, I was already struggling with going to church so I just decided to follow my husband’s religion.

“Converting to Islam made our bond tighter and sweeter. And it’s exciting for me because I’m learning the religion (Islam) and at the end of the day, we are serving one God.”
