Tottenham striker Emmanuel Adebayor appears to convert to Islam in ceremony
Has Emmanuel Adebayor converted to Islam?
This video certainly seems to suggest so – showing the Tottenham striker taking part in the Shahada ceremony, where ‘one declares belief in ‘the oneness of Allah and acceptance of Muhammad as his prophet’.
The Togolese forward was thought to have been a practising Christian until recently, uploading images of himself with a priest to Facebook, as well as a caption praising God.
He has also shared pictures of his work with the YMCA in Togo, amid a difficult time personally.
Adebayor has taken to his Facebook account to criticise members of his family for their perceived greed and their tendency to take advantage of his status and wealth for their own benefit.
He has been linked with a move away from Tottenham in the transfer window, after seeing his playtime restricted during the second half of last season in particular.
However, he remains with Spurs as things stand.
Adebayor is yet to comment on the video.
