Bobrisky has explained why his old practice of Islam would have been a hindrance to his current celebrity status.
The bleaching specialist whose real name is Idris Okuneye said the daily rituals observed in praying as a Muslim would have been too rigorous for him.
He disclosed all these in an interview published by Vanguard News on Saturday, November 26, 2016.
“I AM NOT A PRACTICING MUSLIM.
“IF I HAVE TO BE A PRACTICING MUSLIM, I WILL HAVE TO DO ABLUTION FIVE TIMES A DAY AND APPLY MAKE-UP AFTER EACH ABLUTION AND THAT WILL BE VERY STRESSFUL.
“I STARTED GOING TO CHURCH AS AN UNDERGRADUATE. MY ROOM-MATE WAS ONE OF THE EXECUTIVES OF THE CHRISTIAN FELLOWSHIP.
“SO I GOT FASCINATED AND USUALLY JOINED THEM TO PRAY. I KNOW PRAYER WORKS AND DO THAT DAILY.
“MY MUSLIM NAME IS IDRIS. I DON’T REALLY HAVE A CHRISTIAN NAME. BUT I USE ‘OLANREWAJU’ AS COVER; BY THIS, PEOPLE WILL NOT KNOW IF I AM A CHRISTIAN OR A MUSLIM.”
