Nigeria is a very traditional society that has deeply rooted beliefs that they find very hard to shake off. One of them is their stance on homophobia.
While the world is evolving and some Nigerians are quite accommodating about the idea of being gay, the majority are not and it leads to a clash of opinions on social media.
Just recently, Nigerian LGBT activist, Bisi Alimi, took to social media to slam popular singer, Simi, over her view on black hate.
It all started when Simi took to her Twitter page to condemn hate crimes among blacks.
She said that it is one thing to hate someone for being different than you but wondered how one does not value someone else who is like them.
See her tweet below:
To that, Alimi responded that Simi is a hypocrite for sympathising with abroad blackness while ‘promoting local homophobic violence against their own’.
See his tweets below:
Apparently, Simi who hosts a Youtube show called Stoopid Sessions had hinted at being homophobic after saying that “it just doesn’t seem natural to me.”
She also said: “They say they’re born that way, but I haven’t seen any biological proof.”
