Instagram vlogger jeers at IK Ogbonna over his sexuality, and actor reacts by threatening to sue her

A video blogger named Joyce Boakye, also known as Bold Pink, recently took to the social media to mock Nollywood actor, IK Ogbonna, over his often-speculated homosexuality, lambasting him for having a wife when he ought to come out of the closet and live freely like Bobrisky.

In her video, the vlogger, who identifies on her instagram account as someone who “drinks paracetamol for another person’s headache”, accused Ogbonna of being gay and charged him to “please kindly come out of the closet.”

“You married your beautiful wife, kept her in the house but you’re still looking for Nollywood actors to sleep with… You cannot be deceiving yourself… We know you’re gay, you are gay.”

Ogbonna, who is married to Sonia Lareinaa with whom he has a son, has in recent times been dogged by rumours of marital issues. Taking to his social media platform, the actor reacted to Boakye’s claims with an intent to sue for the defamation of his character. In a statement drafted by his lawyers, Ogbonna is demanding for an apology and a retraction from Boakye.


The post came with an insightful caption which read: “A free platform created for promotion and marketing has given people cheap voices to speak cheaply about people’s hard earned integrity.

“Most of those who wants us to come out with “who we truly are” as they claim, have themselves nothing to show to anyone. The noises are mostly made and heard from the empty barrels. We give attention to what is of value not what takes our attention from what is of no value.

“And very soon, society must weed out the tares that prevent the wheat from standing out. If u come with allegations, pls come out of the closet with prove to ur allegation,” he wrote.

The document proceeded to state that if the vlogger fails to tender an apology within 7 days, a lawsuit would be filed against her at the Lagos State High Court.

The vlogger is yet to comment on the legal document that was issued to her.

    I thought we’ve moved past the stage of indulging petty, attention-driven stunts? The best way to react to an unnecessary show of shame such as this is by ignoring the vermin.

    This is too much defense 🙄

    It’s about time he shut people up for good! If you have no concrete receipts to back up your gossips, zip it! He should go ahead and sue her silly ass for every penny
