Nollywood actor, Gideon Okeke has reacted to the backlash he received for condemning the gay marriage between Marc Jacobs and his partner.
One of the notable reaction came from an activist Olumide Makanjuola who slammed the actor on Twitter with claims that he once lobbied to play the role of a gay in a movie.
Reacting to the backlash from some quarters, Gideon Okeke says he still stands by his opinion and would not conform to the standard of civilization the world is trying to create.
“36 Years and there’s been NOTHING I’ve learned so well, as to stand ALONE.
No Man is an Island, but the feet on the ground and the footprints in the sand ain’t mine. I soar with wings, like an Eagle. I’m bouyed up. I keeps it Moving.
I was raised in a YARD! A ghetto-YARD without fences.
No boarders, but I was raised to know what limits and boundaries were.
Not caged up in a flat, apartment quarters, BQ or Face me -i-Face You.
A YARD, means I had the Luxury of SPACE! (front yard, backyard, neighbour Yard). My Dad (rip) would rather encourage me to “open your mouth and talk”…when it was Necessary.
There was no sme-sme around him. Or better yet, there was no “open nyash and rub oil”. Wetin dey smell, if e never spoil, na rotten e rotten.
I am Ghetto. But your worldy civilization STINKS.
To the “friends” we’ve lost, Don’t look back.
Else you run the risk of being SALTY.
From NAZARETH with Love. The capital? AJEGUNLE.”
