My life has been one big fight.

I have battled a lot of principalities and I never backed down.

I battled for the rights of okada riders to make a living.

I battled for the rights, respect and big money for the Nigerian musician for which I spent three weeks in the cell. Today they have a better life.

I battled for the payment of aged military pensioners who were dying in their hundreds.

I was beaten black and blue by the military and locked up for 30 days, just to mention a few.

Now I have chosen to fight for the rights of gays and lesbians.

My people, building bridges takes us further than building walls.

With no shame but a heart filled with pride, I do declare that I’m a proud supporter of many rights.  HAUSARIGHTS; #IGBORIGHTS; #YORUBARIGHTS; #GAYRIGHTS; POLYGAMYRIGHTS #WOMENRIGHTS and Charlyboy’s right to say how I feel.

Do you know that it takes no compromise to give people their rights?

It takes no money to truly respect an individual.

It takes no political deal to give people freedom.

It takes no probe panel to remove repression, oppression, frustration

There are so many qualities that make up a decent human being…

I have been privileged to meet people with very beautiful souls

Sensitive, caring and love filled human beings.

Straight or gay, what people do with their private parts in their privacy is probably so low on my list that it is irrelevant.

All you holier than thou Nigerian Christian and Muslims, I suppose you know say, your morality is not law

What does religion/spirituality mean if we would use it as a cover for our hate games?

I want you to understand that if my friends decide to have sex whether safe, safer or unsafe, it is their decision and you have no rights in their lovemaking.

In fact, if I were to secretly film/broadcast many straight people making love the world at large will faint with surprise and horror.

Nigerians go burn thief wey steal N1,000. Hail armed political robbers wey destroy their future. Nigerians go carry gay matter for head and at the same time do exactly the opposite of what the Bible and Quran teach.

See fake people.

Una mumu never do?

Who am I to tell you if being gay is right or wrong? Who am I to say if it’s a choice, decision or some sickness? When I am just human, who sins everyday and comes short of the glory of God times without number.

So, before you throw that one stone, before you make that one hateful remark, before you heat up the blogosphere with your useless and hateful comment, just know that there are many youths out there who are confused, depressed and contemplating suicide, simply because of their sexuality.

Someone is suffocating, choking & breathless. Someone somewhere hates himself/herself, and everyone else around him/her for being so different.

It might be me, you, or someone close to you, for all we know; love is the greatest of all.

Before anything else, let love lead!!!

This is dedicated to all those who are deferent; who are misunderstood.
