Nollywood actress Halima Abubakar stated during a recent interview that over forty per cent of all married men in Nigeria are bisexual.
The 35-year-old actress on Tuesday, August 25, shared an oblique post on social media that implied that most men who cheat on their wives are closeted gays.
Ms Halima Abubakar wrote on her social media page: “Don’t blame people who jump from one girl to another. Some times what they really want is another man. Don’t hurt yourself. Dust yourself and move on.”
In a yesterday (August 26) interview with the PUNCH, the mum of one gave reasons for sharing the post.
According to Halima, around 40% of married Nigerian men are on the “down-low” (bi-sexual).
Abubakar said she knows a lot of married men who are bisexual. The actress said people should be bold enough to live their truth instead of getting married and putting their families at risk.
Read Nollywood actress Halima Abubakar’s statement about married bisexual men in Nigeria:
Halima Abubakar said over 40% of married men in Nigeria are on the down-low and go to bed with other men.
“We have over 40 per cent of down-low (bi-sexual married men) in Nigeria, whether you want to believe it or not. Sadly, their families don’t even know. Instead of them putting their families through hurt, infect them with various diseases and end up killing their wives or themselves because they are scared to open up, I feel they should be truthful and realistic about their needs and put it first before anything.
The ‘Okafor’s Law’ actress said she knows many married men who are bisexual.
“I know so many people who are married and they are bi-sexual. I’m saying this because it is the truth and those reacting are the guilty ones. Tell me why a man will change girls at random? What exactly are they looking for if it is not a man? Nigerians don’t accept the truth because half of us are hypocrites. I Halima Abubakar am telling you that a lot of people are bi-sexual.
Halima Abubakar advised Nigerian gay and bisexual men to stop getting married to women and use surrogacy if they want to have children.
“They should save the lives of future generations by coming out, if they don’t want to come out, they should not get married. If they want just a child, they can afford surrogacy. You won’t believe some of these people have nine children, tell me what they want nine children for only to go and end up with a man. That’s destroying somebody’s life. I’ve been hinting about it for a long time now so I just needed to say it like this.”
