    Awwwww.. What an emotional video. Wish it was that easy for us.. If it was, I’d have done it a long time ago. Their dad is cool too..
    The twin in black doesn’t look bad @ all.. I’d do him on a good day if he asks nicely . ☺☺..

      Yea those pouty lips of his are something. 🙂 But I think I prefer the one in grey Tee.

        The one in grey is more masculine.. Looks like he’d do a thing or two to you in bed. He looks kinda dangerous too in a subtle way.. And an amazing voice..
        Of course, he’s your type☺

        Kenny had lots of followers on Facebook. Maybe, that was why he used it; to reach out to as many people as possible. The fear of MTN data tariff will discourage Nigerians from watching the video on YouTube unless Maxie decides it’s time for some of those tutorials

    Sorry, but, is there a need to publicly come out of the closet on social media? Why is it a fad? Couldn’t they have gone to their dad’s for this? If he rejects or accepts them, that’s when I think they ought to have come to their YouTube page. Me thinks public declaration of sexuality has been taken over by heterosexuals…

      Visibility is important! For yourself and for others!

      Some kid struggling with his sexual identity will watch this and realize that he is not alone, and that it’s not wrong to be gay!

    When I first saw this video on thursday all i could think was awwww how sweet, but then I did some thinking and I found it tacky and fishy.

    Coming out to the world is all nice, but coming out to one’s own father is something that should be done privately. You come out to your entire family and then you can go ahead and post a coming out video online.

    This while sweet has to be a publicity stunt at least, because they’ve gone from about 50,000 subscribers to over a 100,000 after the video was posted. So I would say the video served it’s purpose.

    It also feels forced and their lines here seem to be rehearsed. There are Other youtubers who have come out and done it more tastefully, Tre Melvin comes to mind, and theirs felt more natural and I actually connected with it. That plus Those other youtubers already had a msssive following due to their talents and then they came out out, these guys would have a massive following just because they came out and are hot.

    Coming out is never easy and is something brave so kudos to them and their Fathers’ sweet response but I definitely smell Hollywood PR here.

    Instead of shifting focus to the containers the message came through in, I submit that the gist lies in reflecting on the contents of the message. Be it a Hollywood pr stunt, or the sole aim being to increase the amount of subscribers they’ve got and traffic, one thing is vividly lucid here, you’ll find yourself in an entirely new web of happiness when you come out to the people you care about, and that for many of us is one sea that even Moses’ rod has not been able to part for us to cross over successfully.

    First of all: those two boys are beautiful, the eyes, the hair, the bone structure … but weirdly i still wouldn’t fuck them … i have tried like forever to psycho-analyze myself to figure out why i cant ‘do’ white boys even when they are obviously uber hot – am not a racist outside the bedroom …
    Anyway, back to the matter! I cant decide whether this is scripted or not, still looking at it with ‘odu anya’ (side eyes) … for some reason, when i see stories like this, i immediately ‘Nigerianise’ it – imagine a proud Igbo man getting a call from his 2 sons informing him that they are both gay! Haaa! While his bp is racing towards the stratosphere, his mind flashes to all the grandchildren he might not get from them, the shame when the world finds out. He will yell and scream for their mother, perhaps blame her for spoiling his boyz (some weird fathers find ways of pinning the ‘failings of kids on mothers) … if they are in school, hw will suddenly show up on campus to take them home for an intensive round of beatings and/or church delivery programs …
    This highlights the vast difference in attitudes and buttresses my point when i say it will take upwards of 70 – 100years for attitudes here to change

      Oh honey, you just nailed it. I’ll still write a piece about homophobia in Nigeria. And you’re right, its not gonna end soon. I started realizing it recently.. This current generation will have to die off before you see any reasonable change.

    That’s some emotional stuff right there. Happy for them, and for the fact that the dad was totally accepting of them.

    Word of advice: Before you start telling you family about your sexuality, especially if you’re not sure of how they’ll take it… make sure you’re totally an independent guy/girl that can actually move on with his/her life, whatever the outcome.

    The less pain, the better.

    PS: They definitely look good…and uhm… I guess this is my welcome comment here.
