Controversial Nollywood actor, Benson Okonkwo who has played gay roles in three movies in the past, has reacted to the backlash he got over nude photos he released during the week.
Benson Okonkwo who covered his manhood with a curtain in the photos he released, blamed gay insinuations about him on being handsome. The actor who said he is tired of people accusing him of being gay, told Saturday Beats;
“There is nothing wrong with that picture; I have talked about this gay issue endlessly and I am tired. People always accuse handsome men of being gay.
“I have played the role of being gay in three movies so maybe they are accusing me because I did justice to the roles. I am a versatile actor, so I was just being professional.
“I took the picture for a movie. I have been living with this allegation and it is not fair; God will judge the people judging me. Whoever thinks he has clean hands should cast the first stone.
“Let them keep talking, talk is cheap and free; rumours even make me more popular. I have my fans, people still love me regardless of what some others say.”
Benson Okonkwo also pointed out an Instagram post, in which he told Nigerians to focus more on making their lives better rather than giving more attention to how other people live their lives. The post which is a backlash he got over the nude photos he released, reads;
“I feel people should dedicate more time and attention towards bettering their lives before trying to fix others’. The sky is wide enough for everyone to spread their wings and fly to whatsoever destination they choose to.
“Everyone with their cross to carry, so people need learn to mind their business and if they mean well for other people they care about, then there is a proper/ constructive way of doing such, not the bitterness and hypocrisies we find around today.”
