Controversial Nollywood star Lizzy Anjorin, in a fiery Instagram live interaction, launched a scathing attack on fans who opted to address her using the Islamic titles she had wholeheartedly embraced as a Muslim.
Lizzy, notorious for engaging in online battles and hurling verbal volleys, highlighted her preference for being hailed by her traditional title, Yeye Mesho.
The actress, in the video, said she has opted to sever connections with Islam and Muslims, having undergone intense online bullying and harassment.
According to her, this decision stems from the perceived lack of backing from fellow Muslim individuals or Islamic organizations during her ordeal.
Lashing out in Yoruba, Lizzy Anjorin said:
“ Don’t ever call me alhaja or iya adini again, I did not see any Muslim defend me on social media”

The filmmaker, initially known as a Christian, suddenly became a Muslim about ten years ago.
Lizzy Anjorin, in an Instagram post, said she switched to Islam because pastors refused to help with the burial rites of her mother.
The actress said she had to hurriedly bury her mother because she had asked not to be taken to the mortuary when she died.
