Nigerian Gay Activist, Bisi Alimi has called out talented vocalist and songwriter, Simi for promoting homophobic violence in Nigeria.
The Nigerian singer took to her twitter handle to react to the death of an innocent black American man who died in the hands of the American police officers. Bisi who was the first Nigerian to come out as gay on television slammed Simi for her hypocrisy. Apparently in an episode of the singer’s program “Stoopid Sessions”, she had said that homosexuality was not natural.
The activist was angered by her previous remark and stated that she had no right to talk about people hating on others when she herself was promoting homophobic violence in her home country.
There is a name you call the #Nigeria middle/upper class elites that sympathise with abroad blackness but promote local homophobic violence against there own #LGBT; hypocrites. The @SympLySimi of this world. You are a disgrace. pic.twitter.com/ZvnWe0CExb

Can someone please tell her it is the same hate she represents? Does she need a mirror? https://t.co/M2xjKX2nDJ
