Popularly gospel singer Yinka Ayefele on Wednesday denied rumours that he has converted into Islam.
Ayefele sparked rumours that he became a Muslim after he seated among leading Muslim clerics including popular preacher, Alhaji Muideen Ajani Bello, during an Islamic programme at Fresh 105.9FM in Ibadan on Tuesday.
In a press release his publicist, David Ajiboye, signed, the Tungba crooner said he has no plans to dump his faith, and gave reasons why he was at the function.
The statement reads, “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.
“We believe the rumour must have emanated from the annual Ramadan Lecture, which Fresh 105.9FM owned by Ayefele organised on Tuesday, in Ibadan.
“We believe it’s part of our social responsibility to organise such a spiritual rebirth programme to sensitise our Muslim listeners on the ideals of Islam most especially in this holy season.”
