NIGERIA – Son of Doyin Okupe, the former presidential spokesperson, Bolu Okupe, has given more reasons he made revelations about his sexuality.
Recall that Bolu had earlier revealed that he was gay while sharing a picture via his Instagram account.
The incident didn’t go down well with his father who came out to state that his son was going through a ‘spiritual challenge.’
“For me, I look beyond the surface or the physical. Here, I see a major spiritual challenge ahead, but I know as my God liveth, this whole saga will end up in Praise to the Almighty Jehova who I serve day and night,” he said.
However, in an Insta live video on Monday, Bolu kicked against the anti-gay law, stating that some of those who signed the law in Nigeria were gay themselves.
He further revealed that he didn’t choose to be gay by chance, rather it was something that has been in him.
Bolu also took a swipe at Christians who are quick to point out that homosexuality is a sin.
He averred that many Christians sleep with themselves, whether married or single, but never see it as a sin.
“I am doing great, and I’m fine. I do believe that whether people like it or not, my recent revelation has started the topic of LGBT or the whole gay topic that needed to be addressed at some point or the other in Nigeria.
“We can’t keep pretending that gay people are not among us. Being gay is not European or a Western nature, it’s simply human nature.
“ Nobody wakes up and chooses to be gay or a lesbian. All these things happen naturally because they are in-born.
“With the whole 14-year law, I bet you for a fact, some people who signed that law are gay themselves. It’s riduculous.
“I really do feel sorry for the women. You women should be fighting more for acceptance because a lot of you guys are married to gay men.
“I am sorry but your whole lives are fake. Your husbands are living in secrecy and leading double lives. I feel like some of you know and some of you don’t mind because your husband is rich but some of you didn’t know but discovered later, and it’s heartbreaking.
“I feel like you all should be pushing for acceptance more so that you don’t end in situations like this. Me personally, I would never want to be in a situation where the person who I call my lover or who I am married to does not even like me or is living a fake life. It’s a lot.
“I don’t feel like any woman deserves that so that is why I feel like women need to stop being homophobic and push for acceptance, so you don’t find yourselves in situations like that because a lot of you are married to gay men whether you like it or not,” he said.
