Religion plays a huge role in the shaping of life of any individual. Religion is largely viewed as sacred. It helps people to draw strength, inspiration and direction. All over the world, people switch from one religion to another.
In Ghana, there are three major religions; Christianity, Islam and the Traditional religion. Ghana is one of the countries which enjoy a high level of peace, and one of the reasons is that its citizens are highly tolerant and respect the fact that religious differences are bound to happen.
It’s just a scene of beauty when during Independence Day celebrations, representatives of the major religions in the country come together to pray for the prosperity of the nation. Indeed, there’s beauty in diversity.
Irrespective of the religion we belong to, as Ghanaians, we have found the need to love one another and so here, we take a look at some of our celebrities who are Muslims. Some of them are obvious whiles others are not so obvious, follow me, let’s take a ride:
Abedi Pele and sons
The maestro, Abedi Ayew Pele is a practising Muslim. He was born into an Islamic family and attended the Ghana Senior High School in Tamale. He is often visited by other practising Muslims during the Eid-ul-fitr.

He is the first son of Abedi Pele.
