      Based on the many errors in your comment, what we really need is an agency to review our nation’s education system.

      woooow!! the amount of hate dripping from your words is amazing. I am glad this was the only thing you picked from watching 30 mins of this insightful discourse on homosexuality in Nigeria. It is people like you that make me wonder if there is any good in this world. I truly do not even understand where you are coming from. Homosexuals are already criminalized in the country so you don’t even see them at all. If in the midst of this persecution they face you still have a problem with what they do in their own homes, I genuinely feel sorry for you. you are living a hate-filled, sad life.

    Let’s stop promoting homosexuality in our movies like its right…..

      i am very puzzled about your comment. What do you mean promoting homosexuality in our movies like it is right? I was not aware that it was the responsibility of movies or films to pander to our subjective standards of morality. I thought movies were supposed to bear witness to real life issues. If art imitates life doesn’t it make logical sense that we should use visual mediums to highlight real life issues?
      The first part is even semantic talk sef let me get right to the main issue here: Your use of the word right thereby casting homosexuality as wrong. As far as I know, Nigeria as a country is under a constitution that separates itself from religious doctrines (separation of church & state). As a result, every citizen is given a right to freedom of association and speech (bear in mind that gender/sexual orientation is not even supposed to be a decision for the public sphere at all). The concept of criminalizing homosexuality is unconstitutional in the first place but granted we live in a lawless country. The question remains, who the hell are you to decide someone’s morality marker in your narrowminded glory? who made you arbitrator of right and wrong?
      Finally, I am pretty sure that you are not supposed to judge people if you subscribe to either christian or muslim faith as you profess to. Awe, if you feel this message is not for people like you, you are well within your rights to close the page.

      Its part of your society. Nothing new here. Nigeria has many teachers of the law who teach others but themselves. Politicians swallow billions meant for health, education no one holds them accountable. A movie is acted for awareness on hidden realities judges come out. hahaha

    This is totally wrong. This short film is just not right. Homosexuality is bad. No two sides about it.

    First and all should calm down. I have seen this short film.. Its not about supporting homosexuality. Its about showing to you that most of them even get married…have kids… have passion to do things for God BUT …..see the BUT ….you hypocrites….BUT they have some sort of struggle know one will understand except you’re in their shoes…
    Its not what we like in Nigeria but the truth is so many Nigerians are gay….you see them in your churches..offices..mosques..etc..You have them as brothers or brother in law..husband..(dey dia dey talk say you no get them …’ll be shocked with how many of them do it without you even suspecting).

    You all are in denial… Its happening.. the society doesnt support the act… no one wants to be married to the same gender ..its abnormal…BUT ( See the BUT again ..) there’s a BUT about these people we dont know.. We’ll leave them / their act to GOD….

    Yes I say we dont accept it..but movies are there to enlighten us, teach us and show us whats happening in the society… Some people will have kids that’ll turn out to be gay…(Dey dia dey yinmu….)We should only pray not to be faced with this tough life because I believe most of them would have tried one way or the other to stop .

    Enough said…
