Yinka Ayefele denies converting to Islam

Yinka Ayefele at a Muslim event organised by his radio station 
Yinka Ayefele has reacted to rumours of his conversion to Islam. Claims of a possible conversion by the Tungba gospel singer arose as a result of his presence at a Ramadan lecture in Ibadan on Tuesday.

His publicist,  David Ajiboye issued a communique that Ayefele’s radio station only hosted a lecture in honour of the fasting period for Muslims.
‘We believe the rumour must have emanated from the annual Ramadan Lecture which Fresh 105.9FM owned by Ayefele organized on Tuesday, in Ibadan,’ the statement read.
‘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 naive minds went to town to spread the rumour about Ayefele’s conversion.’
On the essence of the programme, the statement says it sought to cater to a demographic of their Muslim listeners.
‘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,’ it read further.
