Why I can’t stop being a lesbian – Temmie Ovwasa

Temmie Ovwasa

Nigerian queer singer Temmie Ovwasa popularly known as YBNL Princess has revealed why it’s too late to change her sexual orientation, saying that lesbianism is not a phase and that developing interest in a heterosexual male is downgrading.

The 24-year-old activist who publicly identifies as queer said this in an Instagram post on Wednesday as she recounted the family pressure that comes with being queer, stating that being a lesbian supersedes being with the opposite sex.

“Can’t go from multiple orgasms, genuine concern from my partner, full autonomy because she knows she doesn’t own me and treats me as such to 2 strokes, pregnancy scares and an immature man child who can’t wash his ass or keep a straight woman interested. Dear family, it’s too late,” she said in parts.

YBNL Princess also informed her fans that she will embark on a marital journey with her same-sex partner.

Rapper Olamide discovered her in 2016 after she posted samples of her songs on social media. Olamide signed her onto his record label where she thrived as the only female artiste until her exit in December 2020.

Nigeria has a Same-Sex Prohibition Act, signed into law in 2014, which prohibits same-sex marriage or public show of same-sex relationships. Defaulters are liable to a jail term of 10 to 14 years.

The law drew international condemnation when former resident Goodluck Jonathan signed the bill into law.
