According to his Facebook Page Benjamin Holst the man once given the moniker “the most hated German in Thailand” has converted to Islam after marring in Gambia last month.
Having converted to Islam Holst has now taken a new name which is Benjamin Mohamed Drammeh and hopes that his new identity will one day make it possible for him to re-enter Thailand having been blacklisted for begging from sympathetic Thai citizens then spending the money on booze and women.
Following his wedding in Banjul, Gambia’s capital Holst or Drammeh which ever you prefer shared his official confirmation certificate issued by the Kanifing Islamic Court with Thai reporters which came into effect in December of last year.
When asked if he hoped he would be allowed to return the Thailand he said “with my new name it’s more easy.”
After being kicked out of Thailand Holst bounced from country to country using his large leg some which some attribute to a form of elephantiasis to beg for money before being kicked out of several countries before eventually finding love in Gambia.
With this recent media attention his hopes of re-entering Thailand under his new name might not be as easy as he thought.
