Watch Adebayor Take the Shahada as he converts to islam


Togolese skipper and Tottenham Hotspurs striker, Emmanuel Sheyi Adebayor, has converted to the Islamic religion.

He was video in an all white outfit amongst Muslim leaders where the footballer took the Shahada. The Shahada is an Islamic creed declaring belief in the oneness of God and the acceptance of Muhammad (PBUH) as God’s prophet.

The football star was present in Ghana for the star-studded delegation which embarked on a cleanup exercise in Kumasi, Ashanti Region.

The Tottenham Hotspur star, Emmanuel, 31, played for the Star XI side during the Stephen Appiah testimonial match held at the Accra Sports Stadium.

I congratulate Adebayor on his new-found faith and welcome him into the religion of Peace,  submission and compassion.
