JJC Skills said he was originally born into an Islamic family but he never practiced it as he chose to follow the faith of his mother.

Speaking to Muslims News, the musician said it was a design of God that he would finally embrace Islam.


“I was born a Muslim – AbdurRasheed by name. My dad, Bello is a Muslim but my mum is a Christian. Back then I used to go Islamiyah but all I remembered about it was getting beaten. They used to scare us with hellfire so, I never practised.

“It’s God’s design that I will return to Islam. I thank Allah for sparing my life.
