Moreso, speaking to Muslims News, the artiste noted that it was the design of God that he would finally embrace Islam. He further recalled his childhood days when he attended Islamiyah.
“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,” he said.
