“Insha Allah, My new name is Hajia Meenah Mercy Adeoti. Meenah with the H. I’m so so so excited. I feel fulfilled actually. This is actually my first Ramadan lecture and then Ramadan is one of the pillars of Islam. It’s like gathering people and letting them be aware of what Allah says, so that we can follow the rules that Allah has set. So I’m so happy that people that we called came here,” she said in parts of the video.

The actress has recently lamented the ordeals of having to wake up for Sahur during the Ramadan period.

Sharing a photo of her asleep, the actress commented that it has been hard to wake up for prayer. Aigbe further clarified that she is coping better with fasting; however, she is still struggling to wake up to eat early in the morning as she is always sleepy.

She shared on Instagram that it has become difficult for her to stay awake during the day after waking up at midnight.
