Nollywood Actress Liz Da Silva Converts To Islam So Her Baby Can Be Named

Nollywood actress, Liz Da Silva who gave birth some weeks back has converted from Christianity to Islam and changed her name to Aishat Olaoye. And this she says she did so her new baby can be named.

Since Liz put to bed, there have been insinuations that serial husband and motor Park President MC Oluomo is her baby daddy. 
But in a recent interview with City people, Liz explained why she had to do the name change, even though she isn’t married to her baby’s daddy, and why she ain’t talking or ever going to reveal who her baby daddy is.

 Excerpts from the interview…..
  •  So is the next step now marriage since you already have a child out of wedlock?

I will always say, fingers are not equal, if marriage comes, I will surely embrace it but now I am not after marriage. If it comes, fine because every woman wants to be married.

  •  Is the father of your baby the man you once had an introduction with?
I never had any introduction or anything with anybody; fine I have people I have dated but not marriage. You see I was in a relationship and planned on settling down but it didn’t work. People plan and  it doesn’t work, you let it go and move on. So if you are talking about it there father of my baby is the man I was planning to get married to, he is not. 
  •  So who is the father of your baby?
 I am not ready to disclose the father of my baby, my relationship or love affair but it is not possible for me not to have someone, at least I am old enough. I don’t have any business with anybody, their business should be me, I am the focus here, I brought myself to the world in 2004 when I joined the movie industry, the father of my child is not their problem. So people should leave him alone. If they have any problem, they should deal with me. Why are they after the father of my baby? I have not gone to anybody to beg for the child’s upkeep so what is their business?
  •  Don’t you think it will be wise to just tell us who the father of the baby is because several names have been mentioned including MC Oluomo?
 Let them talk, it is normal. Even when I tell them the truth, they will talk so let them talk. I am not bothered. Is it possible for me not to know the father of my baby? I have intentionally kept quite all along because I just didn’t want to talk. My baby and my baby’s father shouldn’t be their problem. I know the father of my baby and he was present at the naming. I have a baby father, period. No matter how long you persuade I am not ready to disclose his identity. Incase you want to know I have a good relationship with my baby’s father and that is why I had to convert to Muslim and got a new name aishat before they baby was named. I am a Christian, but I had to convert to Islam because of my baby. If not my child will not be named. It was done on Sunday before the naming. I am now aisha…. Not ready to disclose the other name. (Laughs)
  •  So that means you are married to the father of your son? For you to have changed your name and add his surname? 

 I am not married properly, don’t get me wrong. What I did is a religious rite that needed to be done before the child could be named. The father is a Muslim. I will inform you when I want to get married.

  • From what you have said the father of you baby is a Muslim, and looking back, the only Muslim man you have linked with is MC Oluomo, does that means he is the father?
 (Laughs). My child is not for MC Oluomo, but MC is a man I will always respect. I can say it anywhere because he stood by me when I needed him, but he is not the father of my child, that I can say.

    Once again welcome back Anwuli. My confession goes thus- You are one of the reasons why I registered my name on google. I love your approach to life and how you only have nice things to say and even when you criticise you do it constructively. One thing I've realised is that it is very easy to hate and be bitter under anonymous and to be honest I attacked you once under anonymous on linda's blog for being too nice. But since I registered my name I have it in my consciousness that anything negative I say is attached to my name forever and there's life beyond blogs. I watched a movie 'cyber bully' and it made me realise that not everyone has a thick skin and people need to realise their words of hatred hurt and some people might crumble and become tempted to commit suicide. Having said all these Anwuli I apologise for that one time I picked on you on linda's blog. Keep on being who you.. And to all anonymous who hate even if the person you hate can't see you God does. And to Deekay who called me a witch it takes a witch to identify one. I'm not surprised after all you once called Annie Macaulay a house girl.

    Things silly women do for men. Smh!! You don't sew him converting to your own religion. You're not converting for any sensible reason. Urgghh!

    Basically you're saying if you didn't convert your baby-daddy wouldn't have let the child bear his name. . . . Or marry you. Kmt!
