Award-winning songwriter and filmmaker, AbdurRasheed Bello, popularly known as JJC Skills has announced that he has returned to Islam, his father’s religion.

The former husband of popular actress, Funke Akindele, made this known through a series of posts on his verified Instagram handle and corroborated his announcement with an interview with an Islamic online platform, Muslims News, on Thursday.

JJC Skills said he was originally born into an Islamic family but he never practiced it as he chose to follow the faith of his mummy, adding, “I was lost but now I’m found O Allah, I ask You for Your pardon and well-being in this life and the next.

“O Allah, veil my weaknesses and set at ease my dismay, and preserve me from the front and behind and on my right and my left and from above, and I take refuge with You lest I be swallowed up by the earth.”

Speaking to Muslims News, the musician said it was a design of God that he would finally embrace Islam.

“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 practiced.

“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 maintained.
