Actress Kemi Afolabi has debunked the reports that she visited Christ Embassy for healing from Lupus, a disease she announced she is struggling with.
The reports had emerged after a lady who looked like Afolabi was captured being prayed for by Pastor Chris Oyakhilome of Christ Embassy.
However, the 44- year-old actress said she is a devoted Muslim and admonished the public to stop using her illness to cook up false stories.
She wrote: “Since the news of my illness became public, I have gotten reports of different misinformation and false narratives out there.
“I have ignored it 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.
“Some time 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 the same God, I believe.
“I was stunned at how insensitive humans could get just to score religious points which can simply be considered blasphemy.
“I personally would like to use this medium to debunk such a 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.”
