Nigerian singer Adekunle Gold was featured on the Qua Magazine, a tabloid targeted at the LGBTQ community and Nigerians have come for his wife, Simi.
The reason why she is being attacked on social media was because she made a derogatory statement on the Queer community while appearing on a TV show yesterday. She has since apologized, but members of the community see her apology as a means to save her husband’s Adekunle Gold recent feature on the magazine.
Seeing Adekunle Gold’s post, Twitter users called out Simi and they told her that her apology was given with an ulterior motive to secure the bag for her husband.
They are however petitioning the owners of the magazine to take down her husband’s image from their cover.
People have tagged the magazine to Simi’s homophobic posts and asked them to take down Adekunle Gold from their magazine.
In response, the magazine’s editor tweeted:
“Hello! Please be aware I was approached by AG’s team for the cover with no idea of the simi situation! Please know I am heartbroken and I feel your anger. I am deeply sorry and will be working on fixing this.”
