14 Alexx Ekubo
It is said that he had left Uti Nwachukwu. He’s rumoured to be dating IK Ogbonna currently.Alexx addressed his rumoured gay affair with Uti then:
Your relationship with him has been tagged a romantic one on several occasions with people insinuating that you are gay partners. How do you feel about this?
“It’s hilarious! Back in the days, when you have a friend who you go out with often, it was cool, people called him your best friend. Now, when they see two guys together, people begin to have weird thoughts.You see, in this business of entertainment, what you need is someone that believes in you to grow. Uti is big, and he helped me a lot prior to now that I’m beginning to gather my momentum. He is a ‘BigBrother Africa All Stars’ Winner. You can hate him but you can’t take that away from him. A lot of these local celebrities, outside Victoria Island nobody knows them. Uti is someone who grandmothers and pepper sellers know. We were in Ghana recently and the President of Ghana saw Uti at the Airport and recognized him. You can’t hate on success.”
Where do you think the rumours originated from?
Yes we do. But is it anybody’s problem who I live with or who Uti lives with? We all know how expensive it is to live in a highbrow area in Lagos. If you have a friend who youare getting along with and you want to live with each other, is that anybody’s problem?
How does this rumour affect your career?
It doesn’t affect my career because to me, I am just living my life. I’ve never come out to refute anything because I don’t owe anybody any explanation. It’s my life.”
13. Iyabo Ojo
Yoruba actress, Iyabo Ojo was called lesbian because of her foundation called “S-exy Pink Ladies”. But Iyabo vehemently denied it. She then changed the name of her foundation because of these insinuations.
12. Susan Peters
She once reacted against rumours of her being a lesbian:
‘’I am not a lesbian. I have never practised lesbianism. People who know me know that Susan Peters is not a lesbian. Maybe, the speculation was because of my masculine structure. I am masculine because I used to participate in games a lot before.I played basketball, ran, played golf but I stopped at some point because I was developing muscles. If I go back into the gym now, I will develop those muscles but I am not gay.People should stop tagging me as gay.I love the other sex, I don’t like gay. I have female friends but I have more of male friends. I have a boyfriend mind you, not boyfriends.
But I have male friends because I prefer male friends to female friends because they are more comfortable to be with. I am not saying I don’t like my female friends. I have female friends but I love more of male friends. So, people should stop saying I am gay, I am a full-fledged straight woman.’’
11. Genevieve Nnaji
The story of the Beninese actress/musician, Ella Martins and Nollywood star, Genevieve Nnaji, lesbians were actually broken by an online magazine last year and this has created a big buzz.
Although Ella Martins and Genevieve would have reacted quickly to smash everything, it seems that the echoes are still heard while Ella recently announced to Vanguard that the rumour had affected her.You became popular in Nigeria after the allegation of lesbianism between you and Genevieve. How does this little scandal affect you and your career?
As normal persons and friends, we do take normal pictures at home and in other places but I don’t know why the online magazine showed Genevieve and I kissing, I am surprised and don’t know where they got those pictures from.
So, you and Genevieve were never kissing each other in any pictures you took together?
“We kissed, but it was nothing extraordinary, it was normal kiss between girls. I mean girls do kiss each other normally, even guys do too. When I was dating Fally Ipupa we used to kiss and now that we are separated and are good friends we still continue kissing like we used to. My fear is I receive strange calls saying that in a few days’ time they will be releasing more pictures about us.”
Yes, amazingly for some of you, the Koko Master was also accused of being part of the Rainbow Confederation. Forget the various stories D’banj had homosexual rumors about him once this boring story of him engulfed in Illuminati emerged and, like others on the list, his body is well built.
So they have the rumors were caused by something that he did or did or is it an attack of the Pot Bellied Men Association of Nigeria?
9. Banky W
The Nigerian R & B singer, Banky W answered rumors about his s-exuality. The singer said in an interview that he gave Y! magazine saying.
‘It’s hilarious to me and completely false. I’m not. Maybe it’s because I’m not married, and I practice safe se-x and thus have no children yet.
It all started with the self, exhibiting these semi-written selfies on Instagram. In case you have not noticed that Nigerian men with flat stomach, are quick to call well muscled men who flaunt what they’ve got as gay and unfortunately they left Flavour and Iyanya to fall into this trap.
We knew Flavour was rumour gay partner with Peter Okoye last year when they were seen together.
If you want to know why they would be tagged as homosexuals just by going out and sneaking around with the same sex.
Kcee Colorful wears and combined with stunning color combination, however, has attracted rumors that he is gay. He was constantly hitting on Twitter to be gay because of his choice of eye wear.
6 IK Ogbonna
IK Ogbonna was invited to the Pulse TV studio where he refuted the homosexuals associated with his name. The actor met his beautiful Colombian girlfriend described the ridiculous rumors that he said he likes women with beautiful curves.
“They say IK Ogbonna is gay, Jesus Christ!!!, does this guy look gay to you? (takes off hissunglasses). When I heard that one, I couldn’t stop laughing, I am still laughing.«First and foremost, I have a foundation that won’t let me do certain things,I was reading a partof the bible with some people theother day – Leviticus 18 : 22, and God calls it an abomination.
«I am not even attracted to my own self,I love myself as a person but I cant imagine to get (makes sound). Besides, my love for women is out of this horoscope, I love to feel it”
He also told the NETNG in an interview where he debunked the accusations
On reports that he is gay:
“I disgust it even the bible does. My love for women is even so much that you must be extremely feminine for me to love you.”
“The only thing that was in my head when I saw the picture was where did this happen. I said back then that a gangstar like me could not have been involved in something like that. The fact is that, I am not a gangstar and I don’t want people to see me in that light. I think I am too serious and cool for that kind of thing. People say I am gay. Tha’s laughable because these same people reported soem time ago that I impregnated a girl. So you can see that these things don’t work together. My life is all about entertainment, as long as the people are happy about what they read, I am happy too”.
4. Uti Nwachukwu
UTI is considered gay by so much. They claimed that Alexx Ekubo, his former friend, who shared an apartment with him, was his gay partner. They have always traveled and also participated in events together, which fueled the rumors. However, Uti has led social media, facebook and twitter and seriously threatens all those who spread false rumors about his sexuality.
He said: “I am going to say this just once. All false gossip mongers about my se-uality are hereby warned. A scape goat will be chosen verysoon. This is no threat. ”WHO GOD HAS BLESSED/ELEVATED, NO MAN CAN CURSE/BRING DOWN! ONCE THERE’S WONDERFUL NEWS ABOUT ME, THE DEVIL’S AGENTS TRY TO INTERRUPT BUT THEY ALWAYS FAIL CAUSE THEY USE LIES…CONGRATS TO THE FALSE RUMOUR MONGERS. I’LL SAY IT ONCE ..BE WARNED. VERY VERY SOON A SCAPE GOAT SHALL BE FOUND. I PRAY NONE OF MY CURRENT OR FORMER FRIENDS ARE INVOLVED CAUSE THE WRATH OF THE ALMIGHTY JEHOVAH LORD GOD OF ISRAEL WILL SPARE NO ONE…THE EGYPTIAN PLAGUE SHALL BE CHILD’S PLAY COMPARED TO WHAT IS COMING.THEY SHALL KNOW I SERVE A LIVING GOD. SAME GOD THAT HAS CROWNED ME. BABA GOD NOOONIII!! TO YOU BE ALL THE GLORY HONOUR WORSHIP ADORATION AND PRAISE FOREVER MORE! AMEN…I LOVE YOU UFC..REMAIN BLESSED”

2. Charly Boy
His strange lifestyle also contributed to his gay rumors. The images of the kiss with Denrele rumors also increased. He was quoted as saying he is gay and the leader of the Illuminati in Nigeria.
But later, he denied and threatened to sue the newspaper that carried the news.
1. Denrele Edun
Denrele is the most affected by this gay rumor. His strange lifestyle may be necessary this rumor. Once talked about the gay rumors that went on in an interview. Excerpt below:
Is Derenle Gay?
But many people believe that you are. And to give them reason, a picture of you, Charley Boy, went viral on the Internet recently …
So what was the picture about then?
“I don’t read the news, I make the news.The thing is people tend to look for loopholes when they see you doing well. And since people feel I am feminine in nature, then they think I’m gay. But the truth is I don’t really care about what people say because I’m not fashioned according to what the society expects. And also I think for my personality, if I weregay, the news would have grown from speculations and would have been in people’s face.On the part of Charley Boy and me, I was not expecting the paparazzi that came with the picture.
So why is Denrele still single?
I really don’t want to go into details, but it could have been a controversial agenda, it could have a been a publicity stunt, it could have been the real deal and it could have been photoshopped, but whatever it was, people should just go ahead and make their conclusions.
I’m a hustler and I’m still trying to get myself together. When the time comes, I’ll get married definitely, but there’s no one in the picture for now. I am single.
Who is your ideal woman?
I like someone who would not try to change me and who would understandthe complexity that I am. I want someone simple and absolutely free and not intimidated by what I represent.(Culled from Nigerian Tribune)
