Freetown, SIERRA LEONE – Swadu Natasha Beckley, a Sierra Leonean female rapper and former Miss Sierra Leone has confirmed her conversion to Islam in a Facebook post dated Friday, October 28, 2022.
She said in her post that she had been considering becoming a Muslim for more than a year and that, as a Muslim, she would make every effort to learn what she needed to know.
“I converted to Islam this Friday. I’ll explain the story soon, but I have been battling with this decision for 1 (One) year and 1(One) month. On Friday I decided to take the leap and START THE JOURNEY. I know that I will not learn everything I need to know immediately, but I’ll put in the effort.”
According to the rapper although her religious path is intimate, her music career remains fierce. However, albeit criticism about her alluring appeal from a variety of places, she has bounced back and stated that her spiritual journey is still a learning experience.
“Listen this is my NEW journey and I’m just sharing it with you all. It’s a learning process, every day I am learning, but please understand that your opinion will always be yours and not mine. This was my personal decision for the next level that I see myself,” she posted. OTG/6/11/2022
