Days after shocking everyone by declaring that she had converted to Islam, Akuapem Poloo has changed her name to reflect the new direction she has chosen.
A few days earlier, the actress, whose real name is Rosemond Alade Brown, tweeted pictures taken at an official ceremony where she was being “converted” by Muslim clerics.
She gently responded that she will have an answer when the time is right when a fan enquired after her Muslim name now that she is one of them.
A white hijab is spotted on Poloo in this new update, and she mentions that her new name is Haniya, which means “happiness, joy, and laughter.”
She wrote; “The name is HANIYA ROSEMOND ALADE BROWN(aka AKUAPEM POLOO) STILL @iamcardib SPIRIT TWINNY 💋❤️”
In a separate post she said: “Finally I have all the Quran to read and steady so it guides me see the love is too much for me and I promise no turning back so glad one of my wishes has come to pass Alhamdulillah. HANIYA is my new name.
