      are u f**king stupid. what does his sexuality have to do with him singing the theme song of james bond. many of u are dumb as f**k

      hasn’t sam smith proved him self as a very good vocalist and a amazing song writer. he won 4 grammy awards this year. his voice and vibe is well suited for the theme song of James bond.

      oya mention who can sing better than him in the music industry today.

      Someone has just aired his ‘OWN’ opinion and you had to resort to profanity to offer a counter narrative. it speaks volumes of your attitude and ability to engage in an intelligible discuss. The man has a right to his opinion that’s all I’m saying.
      On the issue of Sam Smith, there is no denying the fact that the bloke is talented. But HIS SEXUALITY has also been maximally exploited (rightly or wrongly) to get him to where he is in the industry. He himself has exploited it several times going on about his sexuality, how his boyfriend broke his heart and how it led to him writing the songs. Besides, everyone knows there is new found soft spot for gays in the arts. So please don’t say his sexuality doesn’t have anything to do with it.

      I do not support gay marriage at all!! BUT Sam Smith is an amazing singer. The best male singer from our current generation in my honest opinion. The man has soul and depth. Yes he’s gay and if I saw him tomorrow I’ll tell him to his face that he’s on the wrong path. But please let’s not deny talent. His talent is incredible and i can’t wait to hear how much he’ll kill that theme song!!!
      Adele set the bar with “Skyfall” but I have a feeling Sam is going to bringggg ittttt!!!!

    Y’all should stop coming for Bruno like that…[email protected] didn’t criticise,he condemned and stigmatised. What has ones sexuality gotten to do with the person’s capability??

    Bandele, what is an “intelligible discuss”? And how does discussing an album’s inspiration mean Smith exploited his homosexuality? Did Adele exploit her heterosexuality when she repeatedly discussed the boyfriend who broke her heart? Who are you to judge?

    Nosy Bruno, what is a carrier in this context? If Bruno should get employed, you should get educated.

    Aikay, white people support gay rights because its wrong to condemn an individual based on his sexuality and not his character. You sound crazy especially since you and most people you know probably just fornicated or are planning to soon yet you’re here acting holy. When it was announced that Shirley Bassey, Tina Turner or Glady Knight were doing Bond theme songs, I’m sure bigots like you said, “Yuk, don’t let a ni**er do the song.”

    Honestly bruno i think u need to stop and check yourself, the way you are going abt bashing and insulting people on BN site goes a long way to tell the kind of person you are and also your kind of upbringing. Just go back and read the first sentence you wrote and to think that you have the time to change ur name to bruno aggressive and type lenghty words of insult and aggression on a stranger really buttresses NOSY BRUNO’S point. The debate about homosexuality is a tough one dt if we start today BN will not rest cos both the FOR and AGAINST have valid points to argue. It is a new trend and like everything new and strange it must invoke some counter current from the people especially we Nigerians who are raised to detest it. I quite understand where Aikay is coming frm and i expect constructive critism not the childish display of profanity exhibited by bruno. You just need to grow up boy.

    It is no question that he will be great in it (Oscar buzz worthy too) Bandele and Aikay, take your hate filled ignorance and go and cash it in the bank. Your type is not needed here
