Sensational singer Sulaimon Shekoni Solomon, better known as Khaid, has revealed why he converted from Islam to Christianity.
The 19-year-old said he was born to a Muslim father and a Christian mother and attended the mosque as a child.
He said that he later converted to Christianity because he does not like going to the mosque, and stressed that his father forced him when he was younger.
Khaid recently spoke on an episode of the Zero Conditions podcast.
He said I was Muslim before because my father was Muslim and my mother was Christian. So I just felt the connection to Christianity more.
Since then, I have not enjoyed going to the mosque. My father made me. But my parents were free-spirited people.
They told my brothers and me that we can choose any religion we want. But we live among Muslims and my father doesn’t want it to seem like he has no control over his children, so he forced me to go to the mosque.
At that time I tried to please him, so I went to the mosque. But after some time I changed and went to church.
My older sister and younger brother are Muslims. The other five and I are Christians.”
