Sensational singer, Sulaimon Shekoni Solomon aka Khaid has opened up on the reason why he converted from Islam to Christianity.
According to the 19-year-old singer, he was born to a Muslim father and a Christian mother and attended mosque while growing up.
He said he later converted to Christianity because he didn’t like going to mosque, stressing that his dad forced him when he was younger.
Khaid spoke in a recent episode of the Zero Conditions podcast.
He said, “I was a Muslim before because my dad was a Muslim and my mum was a Christian. So, I just felt the connection to Christianity more.
“Right from time I didn’t like going to the mosque actually. My dad forced me. But my parents were free minded people.
“They told my siblings and I that we can choose any religion we want. But we live among Muslims and my dad doesn’t want it to seem like he doesn’t have control over his children so he used to force me to go to the mosque.
“At that time I was trying to please him so I was going to mosque. But after some time, I switched and started going to church.
“My elder sister and younger brother are Muslims. But me and the rest of the five are Christians.”
