The factual story behind the viral report that left the internet buzzing for one week has finally been revealed. Over the weekend, there was a report about Nigerian footballer and popular Striker Emmanuel Emenike leaving Christianity to Islam same day the report of another popular footballer Emmanuel Adebayor was seen converting to Islam publicly perhaps to renew himself from the long family saga and start a new life.well just saying…
However, during an interview with African Soccer Online, Emmanuel Emenike has come out to denounce the news insisting that he is still a Christian and whoever published the news needs to re-address it. He said below
“The report that I am now a Muslim is absolute rubbish and false. I want the source of the news to re-address it. I have no reason to convert to Islam even though I have lots of Muslim friends. Is there any big deal observing fasting during the (Muslim) fasting period?”
“I am very disappointed seeing the news going viral because it is something I told my coach in our conversation when he asked me a question and I never said I have become a Muslim. Fasting is not what everybody should know that you are doing and it’s very sad seeing this in the media.
“I am a Catholic, a strong one for that matter, and I came from Christian home. I don’t discriminate against anybody and I believe we are all equal in the presence of God, so what is the big deal in fasting? Does he know how many time I fast to get closer to God before the fasting periods? It’s really sad because I don’t see it as a big deal.”
It could be that the name got mixed up with Emmanuel Adebayors’ since they both share same initials but whatever the reason is apologies to him
