Dr. Yinka Ayefele, MON, Senator Rilwan Akinsoji Akanbi and Alhaji Muideen Ajani Bello during the Annual Ramadan Lecture organised by FRESH 105.9FM at the Music House, Challenge, Ibadan, yesterday.

Scaremongers had earlier today, squealed that the ace singer has now converted to Islam with fans both home and abroad calling to find out the authenticity of the allegation.

However, in a bid to quell the allegation, Ayefele issued a statement via his spokesman, David Ajiboye, saying that he is still a Christian and has no reason whatsoever to renounce his faith and believe.

 “We believe the rumour must have emanated from the annual Ramadan Lecture which Fresh 105.9FM owned by Ayefele organized on Tuesday, in Ibadan.”

“ 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.”

Ajiboye stated further that the station is for everybody irrespective of your religion, race or colour, adding: “We believe its part of our social responsibility to organize such a spiritual rebirth programme to sensitize our Muslim listeners on the ideals of Islam most especially in this holy season.”
