A beautiful bride decided to convert to Islam after she got engaged to a guy who did not share the same faith as hers.
Bijou Fortunate, who was raised a Catholic, adopted the name Bushira after converting into a Muslim when she married Islam Kigongo.
While interviewing with Mywedding.co.ug, the bride said that she preferred to convert because she admired how Muslim women dressed.
“I love covering my head as the Islamic way of dressing. It is very easy and takes little time to get ready compared to the secular dressing codes of matching colours, and looking for different things that go well together such as a skirt, blouse and shoes,” she noted.
