Nigerian actor Uche Maduagwu in dramatic U-turn, says he isn’t really gay

Nigerian actor Uche Maduagwu has made a dramatic U-turn on his sexuality, saying he lied about being gay because he was just ‘fighting’ for gay rights.

In a statement on his Instagram he said revealed that he has lost so many movie roles because of saying he is ‘Proudly Gay.’

“Dear fans, I am not gay. I lost movie roles, endorsements and my girlfriend fighting for LGBT rights in Nigeria.

“Omg, even my girlfriend left me despite knowing I was fighting for LGBT rights in Naija but I no regret using my celebrity status to fighting for this beautiful community,” he wrote.

Earlier this year in January, the movie star revealed that he was ‘Proudly gay’.

“Appreciate others and Share only love we need top respect people’s choices not to judge them so let’s practice Jesus kind of love,”

“Don’t let anyone intimidate you. Come out, show your identity, you are who you are, boy, you’re who you are. Don’t let anybody intimidate you. I be gay, I be no herdsman and I am proud,” he said.

He went on to request Joe Biden to impose sanctions on the Nigerian government for not respecting gay rights.

“Dear President Joe Biden I am proudly gay and I beg you to place sanctions on Nigerian government for its inhuman laws against law abiding homosexuals yet this same government pampers wicked Fulani herdsmen who kidnap and cause trouble in the Southern part of Nigeria.”

Uche is known for trolling politicians, celebrities and other public figures on social media.
