    Chi chi ibo. I have some ugu leaves to sell to you in your hometown if you are not gay. If I hear. This your open chest alone. You are trying to exercise away your breastices. Keep your stories for village people. I think people have a problem with pretenders. Be who you are, claim it, stop seeking attention and no one will care who or what you are

      Comments as yours, and promulgation of anti same-sex relationships laws are exactly what force people that are different to become “pretenders” – as you call it. If you’re comfortable in your own skin, why be so concerned what others choose to do? Me no understand.

    It’s the same question I ask “why would anyone choose to be different, when it’s easier to be same”? I don’t have the answer, but I have learnt to treat people the way I want to be treated, and leave the judging to God!

      Being the same is easy, boring lacking challenge and attention.. change/difference is alwas hard for the ‘pack’ to accept..

    Eerrrmm am sorry hunny… If you don’t want to be called gay then change your perception. First time I saw your I thought to myself “is she gay”… I didnt assume you were I only questioned your sequel preference… And that the same for a lot of people. However, those who judge straight away that you are, are wrong and ignorant. But honey, let’s be truthful, a few women like to do tom boy but yours is a bit extreme… Extreme to the extent you can show your complete upper body, which looks so manly.

    Lmao! You are not?? Oh well this tom boyish life style is too alarming. First, I saw the pix and I had to ask myself it you were gay. Do not blame folks for thinking straight off the jump and concluding that you are gay because your features Ms. Chi chi Igbo is just like that of a man. I’m not judging, it’s called freedom of living and on the contrary, if you stand next to a gay person, you are truly blended in..I’m just saying

    Hey everyone! I am a tomboy at heart. I love to tumble around, I dont get along with girls because I buy shoes and make up, the works – not talk about them. I dont gossip. If I dont like you, I tell you nicely if you need to hear it so that you can maintain a safe distance. I would walk on many occasions when I was younger with a pimp roll because I thought it was so funny and cool juxtaposed against my very feminine face and body. So all my male friends eventually got married as we got older. Since I am far from ugly, their wives dont quite like me around because I bounce around like a boy and probably give off the impression that I am searching. But my homies get me so well. I actually forget I am female and punch them and kick them like I am male. I would wrestle them if I could. But to the onlooker, I am flirting because I look ultra feminine – curves and all. Because I care much about my friends and I know I am too quirky for the rest of the female world to understand, I gradually forced separation from my male buddies. I prefer males 200% of the time. I find it personally find the other stuff offensive but I respect people’s choices so I dont impose my views. Anyhow, I am now very lonely. Me and my homies sneak in calls every now and then when iyawos aint around, and it makes me feel weird because there is no clandestine operation so we should not sneak around. But their wifeys wont understand. I get sadder and sadder by the day. Other males who dont know me dont get close because it is probably absurd to see a married woman who likes manly jokes and arm punching and bad male jokes, but wears 4 inch heels, makeup, long hair and figure hugging skirts. I dont know Chichi’s situation but I know what its like to be a bit different. By the way girl, I want your ripped abs.

      She says it all the time on her facebook that she is gay. What else do you want from her? Read the post again, the “am I gay” question was said by Charly Boy, not ChiChi

      I bet you never heard about what happened to the othercaroline who judged a book by its cover. Allow me update you, she never really got an education and is today an ignorant fool at 40 married to a closet gay.

    • Zubby

      September 28, 2014 at 10:03 am

      Looooooool and the moral of f that story -I guess, is don’t judge a book by its cover or you will never open it and don’t judge people by what you see or you might miss getting to know truly amazing personalities. And definitely don’t judge nigerian police by their uniforms. LMAO. I love the comments on this blog.

      @caroline the most accurate one so far, this statement is perfect, you chose to look like a boy and you expect people to not think ur one? and secondly, if god ur moma gave birth to you as a girl, then ur not being yourself if you chose to look like a boy, besides you can be a tom-boy without being so masculine.

    Still sitting on your pedestal, judging and determining who is or is not pretending to be gay?! As you are an expert in’ gay determination’, right?! Who determines what is extreme or not? An individual whether male or female, should be comfortable in their own skin and have their own preferred style and likes but because you are mediocre and can never be your true self, you rather others follow the crowd! She is woman with a killer bod, six packs and well defined muscles! That makes her gay?
    People, so gullible! Others brave enough, would seat down and determine what is to be in vogue, what should be the norm and even make a lot of money from it while the mediocre follows to feel ‘among’ and judge those that don’t imitate them! Na Wa

    I’m actually surprised Charly Boy said people say he’s effeminate. He just jumped on the ‘effeminate wagon’ about two years ago or so. Who remembers ‘Zoom Time?’ and his PMAN presidency era? Uncle Charlie, please. We all know being gay is the new fad but please don’t make a mockery of the whole thing. There are people who are truly gay and I think you make them look unserious with your antics.
    Madam/Mister footballer, there’s no big deal in your personality – you prolly love attention though. I’ll just suggest you go for a sex change. Being gay, transgender etc isn’t a big deal these days – I don’t know why you had to post an epistle to confuse us more about who you are.

    Fantastic abs by the way.

    LOL….sigh…Feeling grateful to God and the universe, for creating me a woman, in every sense of the word. A woman happy to be one and comfortable in her skin. Even the excruating pain of a menstrual bleed won’t take it away from me.

    Chichi, if you are not gay, Nigeria will pray that you find a man, brave enough to claim you as his, without being accused of being gay himself for loving a woman whose abs are fitter than a bodybuilder’s.

    But if indeed you are a lesbian as I know you are, keep silently munching your carpets overseas and stop making a fool of yourself.

      Look at you making out that you are completely flawless. Claiming a crown of womanhood. You need to take yourself for a gynea consult and sort out your painful menstral flow. Painful menses is notting to be ‘proudly woman about’. It is a condition that points to abnormality in the reproductive tract. So go and correct your condition before you smugly point out weirdos here.

    What is Charlie on about self? Pls, people need to stop confusing being unique/different from being ridiculously mental… Even the God you talk about appreciates the feminine structure read proverbs and songs of Solomon. Plus, the same love track you talk about was an ode to his uncle who is gay and helped raise him. So, No! He didn’t wake up out of the blue to write a song about gays.

    for me its what’s in the heart, mind that counts. i don’t try and think of what people do with their private parts. because it is private. As long as it is legal involving consenting adults. I don’t care for people justifying what they do with their bits. its vulgar too much info. for me this chichi gal is an accomplished sports person cum model with a twist on fashion. And chichi most intelligent people are not going to judge you on your sexuality so why give credence to ignorance by trying to justify yourself as if you owe ignorance an explanation. There is no way around a hard wired ignorant person, good luck trying to defuse it. seems like you’ve got the time!

    One thing you can’t take from Nigerians is the fact that we always have an opinion on everything and it is not always true/positive/correct.

    If she says she’s is not gay, then I don’t think she is one. Being Gay, in its truest sense. She was born a female, but like Charly Boy, not ok with a female body. So its safe to assume she’s a transgender.
    But I do believe she owes no one but herself, any clarification as to her sexuality, so as long she leads a healthy and happy life, contributing to making Nigeria Better. People, should learn to mind their businesses.
    However, Miss Chi Chi, most Nigerians still wallow is ignorance, coupled with the fact that we claim to be religious. But if you do come out as LGBT, you’d actually help in bridging that widening gap. And probably people would become more understanding. We are bound to criticise what we don’t understand.
    I’m Pro LGBT, but your likes need to actually come out of the closet, so that actual education can begin.
