Nollywood actress, Kemi Afolabi has reacted to the controversial report that she attended a popular church to get healed from lupus, a disease she has battled for months.
An alleged photo of herself accompanying the report had set social media abuzz with reactions in the past few days, with many questioning the actress’ faithfulness to Allah, given that she is a Muslim.
Disowning the photo and the report, Kemi noted that she is a devout Muslim and that there was never a time when she visited any church for healing.
Meanwhile, the controversial photo which showed a lady receiving prayers from Pastor Chris Oyakhilome of Loveworld Incorporated, popularly known as Christ Embassy, has continued to make the rounds.
On her Instagram page on Sunday, the actress shared screenshots of the backlash she has received lately with the caption, “Since the news of my illness became public, I have gotten reports of different misinformation and false narratives out there. I have ignored as my focus is on my well-being and health. I am a devout Muslim who believes in calling on God and seeking his face in times of need, this I have done consistently and JOY is certain in the End.
“Sometime ago, a picture was circulating online insinuating that I had visited Christ Embassy Church for healing, I paid no attention to it because didn’t see visiting a church or getting prayers from a pastor as a bad thing. After all we all serve same God I believe. Fast forward to Friday, I posted a video of me doing my personal Islamic supplications, @officialeelahandsome dropped a very disturbing comment today asking if I had just remembered that I was a Muslim or where was Islam when was seeking solutions from the Church. Omg I was stunned at how insensitive human could get just to score religion points which can simply be considered as blasphemy.
“I personally would like to use this medium to debunk such false narrative, never was there a time that I attended a church for healing, the picture circulating online is not me and I want everyone to please disregard it.
“I have a personal relationship with Allah, don’t need anyone to get through to him. Love, Light, prayer, support and peace.”
