This rumour was posted by a preacher on his official Facebook page, today, Monday, November 7, 2022.
The preacher in the post attached some pictures where Drogba was seen praying as a Muslim, wrote; “The former Ivorian footballer reverted to Islam.”
While the details of the report are still sketchy as of press time, it should be recalled that similar news went viral in 2016 which had it that Drogba converted to Islam with the help of his former teammate, Yahya Toure.
Meanwhile, reports had it that Drogba’s wife and his children are Muslims.
