Popular Nollywood actor Bolanle Ninalowo speaks of his conversion to Christianity and his work with God.
The raving actor told Sunday Scoop that despite having a close relationship with God he hasn’t been to church for fellowship before.
“When I was going through dark times, I started reading my Bible and began to understand better how life works. Don’t forget that I was born a Muslim. I have never actually been to church to worship but I renew my covenant with God in my room. It has worked for me over the years, though I realise I may have to go to church at some point. However, I would feel more blessed worshipping with my wife because without her, things wouldn’t be complete”, he said.
He also mentioned that he believes in paying tithes although not the traditional form of it.
“Yes and I pay tithes every day. Not by going to church and giving someone my money but by touching lives in whatever way I can.”
Nino B in his chat noted that he is happy where is career is at the time but also admitted the journey to the top wasn’t easy.
“I am happy for where God has taken me but I can tell you for free that it wasn’t a bed of roses. When I first moved back to Nigeria from the United States, a lot of people felt I was losing my mind. I invested millions of naira in my record label, yet I didn’t make a dime. It was quite depressing but I chose to remain focused, believing that ultimately, things would get better.
“I have been getting a lot of rave reviews but I don’t let such things get to my head. I am grateful for where my career is right now, but I have bigger dreams and I am focused on where I am going. I want to thank all my fans because they are the ones who have got me to this point. I implore them to keep supporting me and we would do a lot of great things together,” he said.
