Popular homos3xual, Kehinde Bademosi, aka Kenny Brandmuse, has said there is a lot of hypocrisy surrounding homos3xualism in Nigeria.
According to him, he has slept with several high-profile men in the country. He told Sunday Scoop, “The elephant in the room is denial.
We pretend these things are not here. We blame it on the devil or white people. I once slept with a Nigerian Senator, and I’m not surprised he will be the first to put his hands up voting in favour of the same s3x marriage prohibition act. While in Nigeria, I had s3x with church ministers who would come in the open to preach against homos3xuality as though it was the reason why Nigeria never had constant electricity.
The hypocrisy is deafening. We didn’t learn about same-s3x relationships from western countries. Some of my first same-s3x encounters were mostly with people who didn’t speak English at all or ever set their feet in a Western school environment. G*y people are not the only ones who need to come out.
We all need to look into our lives and be upfront with ourselves. Am I living my authentic life or am I living it to please families and friends? To come out is to confront shame and limitations to live our most authentic life.”
Sharing his opinion on Bobrisky, the US-based writer said, “In our days as young gay Nigerians, it was Denrele Edun. All that Bobrisky is doing now, Denrele did and even more. Just that there were no social media. To me, Bobrisky and Denrele are powerful provocateurs and gender-bending individuals who continue to use the power of the media to project a side of us we often hide away from.
They don’t have to be g*y. If they say they are not g*y, then they are not. Gender presentation or identity is not equal to s3xual orientation. There are famous drag queens here in America who are not g*y.”
