    They are celebrating him because of achievements not because of his sexuality.

      You have missed the point. But going by what you’re saying, how come Kenny Brandmuse or Bisi himself are only getting maligned by homophobic Nigerians, and no one is celebrating them for their achievements?

    of course they will celebrate him, Nigerians are obsessed with anything oyibo or foreign. At this point, nobody cares if he’s gay or not.

      Nigerians have an overwhelming sense of double standards. The thing punishable for a Nigerian is pardonable for someone from overseas. It’s just what it is.

    I mean it’s fucking annoying. But obviously our inferiority complex won’t allow us be great. These white people do not see us as equals but we practically worship them (a white man would come down to our country and make one of us his driver *rme*).
    It’s obviously with this mindset that Richard is given the strawberry treatment and our very own gay personalities are regarded abominations.

    Such mind-boggling shame.

    What would you have preferred?? Him being stoned and chased out of Nigeria?? Or being imprisoned? Let him enjoy his stay here instead of looking for ways to tarnish him. And who knows If he is being judged behind the scenes!

      Richard Quest could himself announce that he’s gay, and Nigerians won’t touch him. He’s white and powerful. And homophobes only thrive when their victim is perceived to be weaker than them.

        I may subscribe to “homophobes only thrive when their victim is perceived to be weaker than them”. I’ve been in an hotel room with a girl who my male paddy wanted badly, but she wanted I.. We had met her earlier at the bar and it was late so I gave her a chance to pass the night in my room. My ‘paddy’ who had planned to go home after our work bout on my laptop in the hotel room because there was no light at home suddenly changed plans because of the gal. I locked him out when i saw where this was leading.He then went and told the hotel management there are two lesbians locking him out of ‘his room’. They pulled down the door while my girl jittered. I calmed her down all the way telling her nought will happen. As they pulled open the door, I saw a multitude of men and women chanting. Somehow, as they saw it was I in the room, they turned on my paddy and accosted him to repair the door. Must!. Though Im touted as one who throws deviants into jail and allow them rot there, 6 years later, I marvel really at how it happened but I say it was the Holy Spirit

    It’s not just about sexuality, it’s a lot of things. I schooled in Benin Republic & you should see the unity amongst their people. Over there, see Nigerians fighting, criticizing & even killing their own. I’d never forget this one experience I had that made me realize there’s just no hope for the people. Guess what, the government we have have absolutely nothing to do with our bloody bigotry.
