Ace rapper MI Abaga had an interview where he spoke against the “Jail the Gays” law in Nigeria.
The rapper talked about the Taxify incident where a driver sexually assaulted a lady after she told him she is a lesbian, and that it was really uncalled for.
The rapper said he has friends with different sexual orientations, he thinks with the law in place, it’s not safe for them to disclose their sexuality.
He went on to say it’s stupid we have that law in the country, but while we do, it is not safe for people of different sexual orientations to say it to someone.
He was called out by a twitter user, who didn’t agree with him. He clarified himself, here is what he had to say:
“My thinking.. I was born straight.. I wd never want 2b punished 4 who I am.. because of this.. I wouldn’t punish som1 else for who they are.”
“Cheating and adultery are wrong.. but they are not criminalized.. and no form of consensual adult expression of love should be.. my opinion.”
