Amid a nationwide debate in France surrounding attitudes towards the Islamic veil, or hijab, a French rapper has surprised fans by announcing her conversion to Islam and choosing to wear a headscarf.

Mélanie Georgiades, known as Diam’s, has gone through what onlookers have described as a “complete transformation” from an image she had prior to 2009.

Since 2009, Diam’s had been unusually absent from the mainstream rap scene, prompting more than three years of controversy over her whereabouts, despite making the odd public appearance with her scarf.
But recently the French rapper made her first television appearance with her new image.

    This is what the French government dreaded. Their dread is well founded : Islam is here to stay,the religion ordained by God can never be terminated !

        She did quit the music alhamdulillah!
        I recently saw an interview with her on French TV (where she was dressed in full hijab) and when asked whether she plans a comeback, she answered that the drive behind her music was rage and anger and since she found peace in Islam, there is nothing left of that rage, alhamdulillah.
        She was very humble, sincere and very inspirational. She has the potential of a great daaeeiah, mashaAllah. May Allah bless her and strengthen her on her path!
