‘I didn’t go to Christ Embassy for healing’, Kemi Afolabi debunks rumour

Factual Pursuit of Truth for Progress


Actress Kemi Afolabi has debunked news of her seeking help and healing from a Christ Embassy church.

The mother of one, on her Instagram page on Monday, has responded to a fan who had called her out over her decision to try out other religion especially as a muslim.

The actress shared her concern over a series of false narratives about her since she disclosed her illness. She stated that she has always ignored them but it’s worrisome.

The fan’s comment read, “Why you no tell Allah to heal you then? Why did you run to church? Alfa no dey mosque them na.”

She wrote, “Since the news of my illness became public, I have gotten reports of different misinformation and false narratives out there.

“I have ignored it as my focus is on my well-being and health. I am a devout Muslim who believes in calling on God and seeking his face in times of need, this I have done consistently and JOY is certain in the end.

“Sometime ago, a picture was circulating online insinuating that I had visited Christ Embassy Church for healing.

“I paid no attention to it because I didn’t see visiting a church or getting prayers from a pastor as a bad thing. After all we all serve the same God, I believe.”

Kemi shared a screenshot of a message she got from a fan who had criticised her. According to her, the fan had asked her if she suddenly remembered her faith after seeking help from a Christian church.

She continued, “Fast forward to Friday, I posted a video of me doing my personal Islamic supplications, @officialeelahandsome dropped a very disturbing comment today asking if I had just remembered that I was a Muslim or where was Islam when I was seeking solutions from the Church.

“I was stunned at how insensitive humans could get just to score religion points which can simply be considered as blasphemy.

“I personally would like to use this medium to debunk such a false narrative. Never was there a time that I attended a church for healing. The picture circulating online is not me and I want everyone to please disregard it.

“I have a personal relationship with Allah, I don’t need anyone to get through him.”
