He took to his Instagram page earlier today to voice his views on gay rights, and this is coming days after his own daughter came out as a lesbian. He wrote;
All that I have done for over
50yrs of my life is to root for
I turned my back on my
goldplated pedigree and wondered
into the unknown.
I discovered that victory is a million
times sweeter as an underdog.
My life has been one Big fight,
against bad habits, poverty,
hopelessness and principalities.
But I never backed down.
I battled for the rights of the Okada’s
to make a living.
I battled for the rights, respect and the
big money for the Nigerian Musician,
spent weeks in the police cell, as a pman president.
Today, thank God they have a better life.
Now am the President of Frustrated Nigerians.
I am battling with my comrades to stop the
senseless killings of Nigerians.
The oppression of Inocent Nigerians and
the weaponisation of hunger.
Many battles too many to mention.
I have been beaten black and blue by
the military, police, security agents, been teargassed,
shot at, stoned and most time misunderstood
even by the people I fight for.
No big deal because I never back down.
Now I reactivate my fight in defence of the LGBT community.🌈
You know something?
Openness may not completely disarm prejudice
but is a good place to start.
I am hoping that my support will be a
show of strength to the Nigerian LGBT 🌈community.
Because seriously speaking
To each his own.
