Popular actress, Kemi Afolabi has reacted to reports of attending a church in Lagos for healing after being diagnosed with Lupus, a medical condition where the immune system attacks its own tissues.
It would be recalled that the 44-year-old actress opened up on her battle with the incurable disease few months ago and disclosed that the doctors said she has only 5 years to live and she has lived one year out of that already.
In a recent development, a picture of a woman being ministered to by Pastor Chris Oyakhilome of Christ Embassy made rounds recently and it was purported to be the actress.
In the light of this, a follower attacked Kemi for ditching her religion and going to a church in search of healing instead of consulting an Alfa.
Reacting to this, Kemi took to her Instagram page to debunk the reports while noting that she’s not the one in the viral picture.
Read her response below,
“Since the news of my illness became public, I have gotten reports of different misinformation and false narratives out there. I have ignored 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 same God I believe. 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. Omg I was stunned at how insensitive human 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 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 to him. Love, Light, prayer, support and peace.
