Popular gospel tungba crooner, Yinka Ayefele has called his conversion from Christianity to Islam story a mere rumour by some overzealous Muslims who wished Ayefele is in their camp.
Earlier yesterday, the news of the conversion to Islam of the ace singer went viral with fans both home and abroad making calls to find out the authenticity of the claim.
But in a release issued by his Publicist, David Ajiboye said, Ayefele is still a Christian and has no reason whatsoever to renounce his faith and believe.
“We believe the rumour must have emanated from the annual Ramadan Lecture which Fresh 105.9FM owned by Ayefele organized on Tuesday, in Ibadan.
“Our station, Fresh 105.9FM had invited popular Islamic preacher, Alhaji Muideen Ajani Bello as the Guest Preacher at our annual Ramadan Lecture which had over 4,000 people in attendance and because of this, some naïve minds went to town to spread the rumour about Ayefele’s conversion.”
Ajiboye stated further that the station is for everybody irrespective of your religion, race or colour.
“We believe its part of our social responsibility to organize such a spiritual rebirth programme to sensitize our Muslim listeners on the ideals of Islam most especially in this holy season.”
