Actor IK Ogbonna says he’ll never play a Gay Role

Actor IK Ogbonna courted controversy when he sat down to a chat with Saturday Beats, where he said that he would not play any gay role. I mean, gay roles have never really been an issue in Nollywood, but whaddaeck, just in case any director is eyeing an actor for one such role, he just wants to get it out there that he’d never be interested.

He says:

“I have never done a gay movie in my life and I would never do such whether internationally or locally. There are certain things I don’t support and would never support and homosexuality is one of them. Inasmuch as people are free to be who they want to be, I mean God gave us all free will, so who am I to judge? I would accept you for who you are but I would not encourage certain things. I would not be on platforms to encourage these kinds of things. It does not mean that I would judge you or discriminate against you but I would not be a part of such.”

    And for IK… This Oga can’t act nah! When I eventually become a film maker this guy will not even see my script cover page not to talk of role sef. Horrible line screamer.

    Maybe he should learn to act first before worrying about what roles he wants to play or not. KMT

    most answers you see in interviews are responses to questions. he was asked & he answered. even if he’s gay and/or can’t act to save his life, is he not entitled to his preferences? read again, he said he has no problem with gays, just that he won’t act a gay role.

      The thing is tiresome. Just because he said he won’t take a gay role he is now ugly,dumb,hypocrite and all. All this coming from a people who have “suffered” long years of intolerance for being different. Okay

    He need to have acting chops first. Even though he doesn’t have ish with sexual preferences.

    On a lighter note- Pink Panther big ups on the new site. U did good.

    madam ogbonna so after Bromancing Alex finish you go come open your mouth and say “There are certain things you don’t support and Homosexuality is one of them”

    Agabaya!!! Why not learn how to act first before worrying about playing gay roles???

    ‘Straight people can play gay roles; and gay people can play straight roles. That’s the whole point of being an actor. To be able to transform…(Reese Witherspoon)

    Now we know the difference between Hollywood actors and Nollywood actors…anyways, that’s by the way. He should keep staying irrelevant.

    I like this pink theme.. Pretty

    Well he doesn’t want to have an erection while acting one, there by outing himself and ruining his plans to finalise his European green card. Lets cut the girl some slack
