Stahp It, All Of You! Actor IK Ogbonna Is Tired Of Being Labeled Gay

In a new interview with Punch, actor and model, IK Ogbonna says he is tired of the gay rumours that keep trailing him. He says no man has ever been identified as his gay partner. (As opposed to Alex Ekubo and Uti, eh IK?)

He reportedly said: “I am tired of the gay rumours trailing me. You can never pick out any man with whom I have had an affair in the past, but you can link me to some of the ladies I have dated. It is funny because I am sometimes called a ladies’ man and at times rumoured to be a gigolo, and then gay. These three things do not relate to one another.

“That I have chosen to adopt the UK style of dressing, which typically comprises tight pants, should not make me gay. The fact that I have friends in the industry that I choose to hang out with should not make me a gay. I really don’t care about what people think of my personal life. I can’t spot anyone as being gay in the industry and I don’t see anything wrong with two guys or ladies being close friends. Until I am approached by a guy or I see guys getting down together, then I can conclude that he is gay.”

#sigh I feel your pain, IK dearie. Now all of you who were coming after him on that my Man Crush post, let it rest, you hear me? *wagging finger sternly* He is straight, abeg! Straight! Until you produce evidence of his gay lover, anything he says can and will be used against him in — Wait, what am I even saying? Ah yes, that he is straight, goddamnit! #dropsmic

        @dennis: I’m igbo too but I understand what khaleesi means by “igbotic” in dis context. “Uk style of dressing”…sounds like something our illeterate,new-money brothers in Aba would say: “I’m a big boi, I don’t use made in Nigeria goods, only made in ‘abroad’ “.

      Abi o. There’s not a rumour without any iota of reality in it. For the fact that no one has decided to “expose” him does not make him think he can go on “faking” his life. “UK Style of dressing”… lol. exposing the bare chests with tight pants and… **click next jare***

    First of all, he does nothing for me, secondly I had no idea who he was until Pinky posted about him, thirdly, dear IK, what the hell does ‘ UK Dressing’ mean.
    I am more attracted to the wit of a man than their looks, and he just seems to be one of them empty headed morons trying to form big boy with his ‘ UK dressing’. UK melo lo ti lo gan ti kofe je ka gboro!!! Mtchew
