          ken, look at it from the commenter’s point of view. By calling a celebrity ‘gayish’, and knowing the gay clime in Nigeria, it’s intended to sub the celebrity. If Korede were to see this and was the kind of person to react to internet gossip, chances are he’d flare up. And isn’t that how people respond to insults?

            Why will he flare up? Isnt he infact gay?? I mean just looking at him, my gayometer spirals out of control! Its time we stop giving into to anger when people say gay. Why focus on the negative intent of the poster when you know better. If someone calls u straight and you dont get angry, then why should you fume at being tagged gay. People really need to work on riding that internalised homophobia

                      oh dear, but it really is that serious. Its all a matter of perspective and its our job to preach to the entire country (or at least on anonymous blogs).

                      Imagine if korede, uti and co actually publicly supports the idea that being gay is not “evil” or “an insult”. That will go a long way in this fight for equality. That young chap in school thats being bullied needs to know there is nothing wrong with being gay, likewise those of us still laboring under the thot that we are less than human just cos of our sexuality.

                      @Ken: let my try to explain it dis way: for a gay man (who has fully accepted himself) to be called “gay”, shouldn’t be an insult; it’s just like saying a tall person is tall, or a dark-skinned person is dark-skinned. However,sometimes,it’s d intent behind the description that gets offensive. For example (apologies to all Mbaise ppl here…I think that shit was common in d older generation), most people from other igbo-speaking tribes know that there is (was) some sort of “reputation”/stereotype assigned to Mbaise ppl. To refer to an Mbaise girl, as an Mbaise girl,(like “hey meet my friend Linda,she’s from Mbaise and she’s a doctor”) shouldn’t be offensive, but when d description is made in a derogatory fashion (like “hmm, run from that girl o; she’s from Mbaise), in dat context, it becomes offensive,because of d intent behind d description.

                      So how does your anger @ being called “gay” make the situation better. What purpose will you have fulfilled??

                      If gay people cant rise above derogatory remarks then the equality struggle is dead on arrival. If you sink to the level of shit eaters, then be prepared to eat shit.

    How would you guys look for Korede in all of that? My baby was right were he belongs, on my chest, the whole time! We were really having good laughs with all the drama going on…oh Korede, what a funny being. I later let him go that night though after Reekado won, at least for the after party, but not before he showered me with kisses for 6 months!

    @Ken, @Delle, I think in this context, being called “gay” (or gayish) is meant to be derogatory.

    @Ken I don’t know if you are out and proud or not, but there is a way someone would call you “gay”, (even in the west where homosexuals are protected) you will know they don’t mean it in a nice way.

    The subject is Nigerian. He lives in Nigeria, he makes his living in Nigeria. It is not a place to be called gay and you own it, especially if you are not out, not an LGBT activist and there is 14 year jail sentence hanging over your head.

    In this case It is not about fighting for equality, rather its fighting for survival.

      @keredim I get your point. I am not saying its not sometimes upsetting to be tagged gay (since we dont live in a perfect world). What I am saying is showing your anger just cos u called gay. We must be able to rise above such derogatory remarks.

      Remember when uti used to continously be bashed that he’s gay. Guess what? As soon as he stopped responding to each an every comment, nigerians simply lost interest and moved on to other more interesting topics

        And that is what Kito Diaries is about. To let people know that it’s okay to be you. That it’s okay to be gay. Which is how your indignation at me was amusing. Imagine the regional pastor telling the general overseer that God is good. 😀

        @Ken, i get you too, but i don’t think we should walk away as gay people when the word “gay” is used in a derogatory fashion.

        If we don’t educate people on the proper usage of the word, “gay” will always be seen as being inferior and sub-human. Just like being “black” was seen as sub-human less than a century ago.

        I don’t know this Uti guy, but I imagine he is not gay (at least officially). So its easy for him to rise above the name calling.

    Even if this guy is gay I think life must be hard sometimes for the gay celebrities just here wondering how do they get their hookups do they have like pimps or something?cos body no be wood and everyone needs sex.

    The image they try so hard to maintain in order to appeal to the female fans and getting so much admiration from them which they try as much as possible to respond to and entertain must be really exhausting when all they wanna do is just to be smothered by a male hunk and make sweet love all through the night.

    Just saw an article about Korede on nairaland and the hate is getting real and I believe people are begining to see through him.All I keep reading is gay!gay!gay! Yet some ladies are still seriously crushing on him,Alex and Uti.Sometimes I read love tweets to them from their female fans and am just like lol if only you knew..I give it to Alex tho he’s very good at egging them on and making them feel special yet no lady has ever been seen with him in public.
