Popular Nigerian comic actor Williams Uchemba has reacted to a recent allegation that he is gay.
The allegation was made by Facebook blogger Kosi Ugo who wrote that Williams Uchemba’s marriage is “dead on arrival” and said it is only a matter of time before his wife realizes he is gay and comes crying to the public.
Reacting to the allegation, Williams Uchemba denied the claims and threatened legal actions against anyone accusing him of being gay without “evidence”.
The 32-year-old comedian and actor wrote on Facebook:
“Someone brought something to my attention recently. I read it with amusement and decided to speak immediately. Usually I would ignore this but for some reasons I think its important to address it. Let me clarify the following.
“1. My name is Williams Uche Mbah not Uche Williams
“2. For those of you calling my attention or linking me with the accusation in question, let me clearly state that I don’t know anyone by the name of Uche Williams.
“3. If anyone has any accusation against me, Williams Uche Mbah, they should feel free to make it.
“4. Anyone with an accusation against Williams Uche Mbah must ensure they have evidence to back it. Because if the accusation is false, I will respond with the full weight of every legal option at my disposal. Usually, I ignore fools and slanderers but in this case I am glad to make an exception.
“5. This is the last I will speak on this issue until any accusation has been made directly to me. I just got married to the love of my life and we are planning our honeymoon. I dont have time to waste on foolishness. I dont like what I hate.
“One more thing, chasing clout seems like fun until clout turns around and bites you. And the greatest response to a cloutchaser is to ignore them completely. God bless you all and have a lovely day.”
