“Alhamdulillah full Muslim now, thanks to the Deputy National Chief Imam’s Quran Reciter and his board for assisting in this,” she captioned the photos.

Poloo’s conversion was met with skepticism, with some netizens suggesting she was simply playing with her fans to gain attention, as she has always done. 

To prove skeptics wrong, she has unveiled a new name in addition to her official identity.

Poloo was seen in an Instagram video wearing a white hijab and indicating that her new name is Haniya, which means “happiness, joy, and laughter” in Islam.

“The name is HANIYA ROSEMOND ALADE BROWN (aka AKUAPEM POLOO) STILL @iamcardib SPIRIT TWINNY,” she captioned the post.
