If not for Islam, i will be dancing in clubs – Aisha Yesufu



Aisha Yesufu, a sociopolitical activist, has warned of a more damaging protest than the 2020 statewide 'End SARS' demonstration.

Nigerian activist and politician Aisha Yesufu has disclosed her love for music and dancing, stating her ability to “whine” her waist.

Aisha made the revelation while responding to an online troll who berated her for dancing at a Labour Party campaign.

Olanike Jimoh berated the staunch support of Peter Obi for dancing in a hijab.

“Talking about Islam, does it permit you to do this on stage? Where did you hang your Islamic morals while dancing in a hijab?” Jimoh asked.

Responding to the critic, Aisha, in a statement on X, disclosed that “clubbing once a week would have been something I would do for a hobby if not that Islam prohibits it.”


Aisha also added that she dances regularly at home, noting that she will not stop dancing because of online trolls.

Her statement reads, “I love music, and I love to dance. I wanted to be a singer and a dancer. I can gyrate, and I can whine my waist.

“Clubbing once a week would have been something I would do as a hobby if not for the fact that Islam prohibits it. So Allah (SWT) knows I don’t do that because he said so.

“This one for the video no be dance sef. Come and see me at home if you are female, and you go know say that one na small thing.

“Back to why I am responding to you: Allah (SWT) is closer to me than the blood that flows through my body.


“He is ever merciful and forgiving. I am not! Where I can say Ya Allah forgive me, and he does, you can’t say Aisha forgive me, and I will. So at the end of the day, I can have enough from you and many others to pay my debt.

“By the way, sharing the video, nko? Many of you don’t realize the technicality of Islam and how common it is to get yourself messed up to the extent that you carry more sins than the original sinner or even help the sinner pay off the sins.

“Anyway, don’t believe me; ask a learned one around you. I sha no sabi anything other than minding my business and staying off the behavior of what others do except where they are public servants affecting lives.”
