Popular Nollywood actor and filmmaker, Bolanle Ninalowo has disclosed that he was born into a staunch Muslim family as Azeez but his system of faith changed after some bad experience.
According to The Nation Newspaper, the movie icon said he ran into trouble and couldn’t be saved by his parents and family members who were Muslims.
Ninalowo, however, stated that the bible rescued him from the trouble and since then “it became my life manual.”
He said: “Although I have only gone to church once in my entire life, I read the bible a lot. My name is Azeez; I was born into a staunch Muslim family. When I was troubled and frustrated, it was the bible that saved me, as my parents and family members couldn’t. So, I picked up the bible and it became my life manual.”
It should be noted that before Ninalowo’s attempt into the Nigerian movie industry he first worked as an accountant in a bank in the United States of America. Then upon relocating back to Nigeria he worked with Guaranty Trust Bank.
Ninalowo’s first attempt into the Nollywood Nigerian movie industry was as a movie producer. He produced his first movie titled Rebirth
