Nollywood actress, Kemi Afolabi has been the subject of online narratives after she revealed her ongoing battle with a terminal ailment diagnosed as Lupus.
The narrative states that she had converted to Christianity and had even taken to Paster Chris Oyakhilome of Christ Embassy for deliverance.
The actress stayed quite silent on the debate, preferring not to deny or confirm them until very recently when she chose to debunk all the speculations via her Instagram handle.
Kemi Afolabi revealed she never went to the church to seek any deliverance or healing, responding to a fanatic who had attacked her on her social media handle for promoting her faith.
The fanatic questioned if the actress knew she was a Muslim before she sought solutions from the Church.
In response, she reacted, writing:
“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 wellbeing and health.
“Also, 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.”
The actress further revealed that there was no wrong seeking deliverance from a church to begin with but denied personally ever going to a church for deliverance.
Kemi Afolabi also added that she never denounced her religion before stating that ‘everyone worships the same God‘.
“Sometime ago a picture was circulating online insinuating that I had visited Christ Embassy Church for healing; I paid no attention to it because I 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 I 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 nit me and I want everyone to please disregard it.
“I have a personal relationship with Allah, I don’t need anyone to get through him. Love, light, prayer, support and peace.” the actress wrote.
