It is no longer news that gay men and women exist in this part of the world. Despite the law which says anyone caught would be arrested and jailed for 14 years in Nigeria, many have failed to heed to warnings and still go ahead to engage in the act. According to a report sighted by YEN. com.gh on Naij. com, a Nigerian gay man, Kehinde Bademosi, popularly known as Kenny Brandmuse, has come out to speak on the hypocrisy clouding the gay institutions in Nigeria.
According to the young man, he disclosed that he had slept with a number of high profile men in the country. He is reported to have indicated that some of the prominent people he had already slept with included pastors and politicians. Nigerian gay man Kehinde Bademosi.
He took to social media to bemoan the rate at which hypocrisy had clouded the argument about gays and lesbians in our part of the world. His post read: “The elephant in the room is denial. We pretend these things are not here. We blame it on the devil or white people. I once slept with a Nigerian Senator, and I’m not surprised he will be the first to put his hands up voting in favour of the same sx marriage prohibition act. While in Nigeria, I had sx with church ministers who would come in the open to preach against homos*xuality as though it was the reason why Nigeria never had constant electricity. The hypocrisy is deafening.
We didn’t learn about same-sx relationships from western countries. Some of my first same-sx encounters were mostly with people who didn’t speak English at all or ever set their feet in a Western school environment. Gay people are not the only ones who need to come out. We all need to look into our lives and be upfront with ourselves. Am I living my authentic life or am I living it to please families and friends? To come out is to confront shame and limitations to live our most authentic life.” Speaking of Bobrisky, Kenny Brandmuse disclosed that everything the cross dresser was doing now, others had already done it in the past without anyone’s knowledge.
He added that what went on in the past was received little attention because people were not so crazy about social media then as they are now. Nigerian gay man speaks on sleeping with pastors and senators Photo:
Punch He said: “In our days as young gay Nigerians, it was Denrele Edun. All that Bobrisky is doing now, Denrele did and even more. Just that there were no social media. To me, Bobrisky and Denrele are powerful provocateurs and gender-bending individuals who continue to use the power of the media to project a side of us we often hide away from. They don’t have to be gay. If they say they are not gay, then they are not. Gender presentation or identity is not equal to sexual orientation. There are famous drag queens here in America who are not gay.
