Popular Nigerian gay activist/pastor, Jide
Rebirth Macaulay has asked popular
comedian, Ogusbaba to stop promoting
homophobic acts through his comedy
videos.
Macaulay made this known after a skit
made by Ogusbaba went viral on social
media. He said the video would only
promote homophobic attacks in Nigeria.
READ COMMENT BELOW:
"This is absolutely despicable, outright
foolish. My attention was drawn to a
homophobic sketch by a popular
comedian called Ogusbaba, @ogusbaba
@laogusbaba."
The video portrayed a violent
homophobic attack of a gay character in
what is titled Lekki Gay.
"We all have a sense of humour, however
this sketch does more than create
laughter. It glorifies and glamorizes
homophobic attacks faced daily in reality
for many LGBT people in Nigeria."
"I am consulting with my colleagues both
at home in Nigeria and anywhere else so
we can take action."
"We would also seek to intercept any
foreign plan programme, as I understand
that Ogusbaba tours America and
Europe frequently."
"Ogusbaba need to understand that this
is not funny. Your comedy is giving
licence to haters to attack gay people. If
you don’t like same s*x, then don’t have
s*x with someone of the same s*x."
"Unfortunately, Nigeria currently have
laws against consenting same s*x
between adults."
"We urge Ogusbaba to withdraw this
sketch, apologise to the gay community
and condemn any homophobic abuse as a
result of this comedy."
The reverend was forced to flee Nigeria
in 2008 after receiving death threats for
setting up a safe space for LGBT
Nigerians to worship.
