In a recent interview, Ghanaian actress and social media personality Akuapem Poloo opened up about the difficulties she has faced since converting to Islam.

She spoke about how the religion has restricted her in certain ways and how she feels like she is suffering as a result.

Poloo also discussed how people have been treating her differently since she converted, and how she has had to work harder to prove herself.

Despite these challenges, Poloo remains committed to her faith and is determined to continue pursuing her dreams as an actress and influencer. Her story is a powerful reminder of the importance of staying true to oneself, even in the face of adversity.

Poloo’s changed her lifestyle after attending the mosque regularly. Her mindset, as well as her behavior, has taken a drastic turn which has made it impossible for her to engage in twerking and other wild dances that were once a major part of her persona.

Though she seems to embrace her newfound beliefs, she faces internal conflict as her previous self clashes with her new identity. It’s a genuine struggle for her to reconcile her actions with her religious values.

Despite the obstacles faced along her journey, Poloo remains grateful for the transformative power of Islam. With her religion opening new doors in both her personal and professional life, she spoke of her joy at finally meeting the revered national Chief Imam of the Islamic community – a dream she had held for years.

Indeed, her conversations with the Chief Imam left her feeling a deep sense of fulfillment and clarity. Moreover, her status as a Muslim garnered respect and recognition at the Suhum Odwira festival, where she was given the unique opportunity to interact with prominent figures like the Vice-President of Ghana, Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia.

Such experiences are a testament to the abundant possibilities that await those who open themselves up to the transformative power of Islam.
