    This dude is planning to apply for asylum for his entire family. At first it was how he was refused entry for eight years to see his mother whom he loves so dearly. Now they did not stop at bullying him alone, but have extended the attack to his family and fiancé. Hmmmn, Bisi, Bisi, Bisi eme lo ni mo pe e? sho ara e O!

    can they let this guy be..he is living a good and responsible life devoid of certain problems that overwhelm the supposed straight guys
    his sexuality has nothing to do with anyone
    if his family has issues with it…they will solve it…if not every other person should just back down

    the most annoying thing is a lot of the people bullying him are residing in the closet and dont wanna come out

    Bisi alimi is a human being and deserves to be on all social media platforms as he so chooses

      Tell Bisi Alimi stop bullying others too. The same guy, asked another guy to be thrown out of barbershop based on his deluded mind. If I don’t agree with u, I’m homophobic. Leave us alone, stop shoving ur stuff in our face. Is he the first gay guy?
      This guy is an attention seeker, he’s posting pic of his small Weener doing all sort of things for attention. This is social media, you get what you put out there.! Bye, go get another hobby.

    I mean it’s too bad he had to leave because of cyber bullying. I do not support discrimination of any kind however, Bisi you keep tryna portray Nigeria in bad light at every given opportunity. I’m sure there are other people who oppressed you asides Nigerians. Oh well…

    You should have thought of the implications on your family first. Make sure you also delete or deactivate your facebook account if you have one, twitter, etc. You are a Nigerian and this act of yours can never be acceptable to us. You are on your own Bisi.

    I guess this is about the private parts picture. Well, if that photo was for your fiance, you should have shared it privately and not on your social media page where you had so many followers. I think your move is a good one for you. Enjoy the quiet. It is invigorating.

    Intrusion ke? this dude started this whole cycle by pushing his gay lifestyle into our faces! Why didn’t he just live his life away from the public’s eye and in peace? You reap what you sow.

    Does Instagram not have delete and privacy features, or is he saying that his known followers are selling out? If you must take on the role of a human rights activist, you have to be ready for anything…and everything. It is not for everyone, though you might not have set out to become one. You have made your point, and it was an important one for our hypocritical society. My advise to you is to live and enjoy your life privately (and I don’t mean in hiding). For as long as homosexuality is a natural human condition, Nigeria will someday catch up, and you would have been on the right side of history.

    LOL! Bisi is such a drama queen. Boo, IG is filled with millions of queer men and women, they don’t cry everytime about intrusion of privacy, heck, they actually like it sef. Whatever happened to the ‘Private’ feature? You could have locked your account, you’d screen followers before accepting them, but no, you’d rather have thousands of followers and then wail about how unruly they are forgetting how homophobic people are in these parts.
    You would do anything to be in the news Bisi and it’s not good for your cause. Calm down Bisi and chin up. You’re an adult, stop crying all the time. It’s tiring and irritating.
