Bolu Okupe, one of the sons of former presidential aide Doyin Okupe has come out as gay on social media.
Bolu shared a photo of himself wearing rainbow-coloured shorts and holding a rainbow.
He then wrote the caption: “Yes, I’m Gay AF.”
Bolu is one of the sons of Nigerian doctor and politician, Doyin Okupe. Mr Doyin served as a media and publicity aide to both Presidents Olusegun Obasanjo and Goodluck Jonathan.
Bolu Okupe graduated from the University of Manchester, UK, back in 2015 and has been living in France ever since.
His father’s reaction to the gay news:
Reacting to the news, Doyin Okupe said his son is going through a major spiritual challenge.
“The picture below is that of Mobolurin Okupe. He is my son. I gave him the name MOBA OLUWA RIN, ( I WALKED WITH GOD) because he was born at the time I gave my life to Christ. I have been aware of this his new orientation for a while now. He knows that as a Christian and a witness for Christ (an evangelist) I am vehemently opposed to homosexuality as it runs contrary to the avowed precepts of my Christian faith. For me, I look beyond the surface or the physical. Here, I see a major spiritual challenge ahead but I know as my God liveth, this whole saga will end up in Praise to the Almighty Jehova who I serve day and night. For it is written: Behold, the hand of the Lord is not shortened that it cannot save, neither is His ear deaf that he cannot hear. Isaiah 59 vs 1”.
