Popular Nigerian actor, Alexx Ekubo, has once again denied being a gay despite drumming support for those involved in homosexual.
The actor said Nigerians should leave those who want to be gay alone.
Ekubo, who stated this on Wednesday in a post on his verified Instagram account, charged Nigerians to respect the rights of other over their sexual preference.
The actor who had been rumoured to be dating Big Brother Africa winner and co-presenter of the Jara Tv programme, Uti Nwachukwu, made it clear that he would never be a gay.
He wrote, “Learn to live and let live. If a person wants to be gay, let them be gay in peace. Personally, I’m not, have never been and will never be.
“Let’s allow people to be free and comfortable with their sexual preference. Stop the name calling and shaming.”
Ekubo, who in the message dived into the controversial tithing saga, says he would continue to pay not minding if his pastor uses the money to buy private jet for himself.
He also charged Nigerian youths to stop criticing each other and as well as eschew envy among themselves.
“Dear Nigerian youth, learn to be happy for one another, hating another man’s candle won’t light yours. If someone buys a car, be happy for the person, if someone builds a house, be happy and pray that God blesses you to do the same.
“Don’t start criticising and calling names, ‘fraudster,’ ‘gigolo,’ ‘husband snatcher.’ A thief, who hasn’t had the opportunity, considers himself an honest man. Trust me, you would do worse should the opportunity present itself. So, shut up!”
“Personally, I’m an unrepentant tithe payer. You want to know why? Because I want to contribute to the outreach the church is doing.
“Now, if my pastor wants to buy a Rolls Royce or a private jet with it, that’s fine with me. God that sees in the secret and rewards in the open will never let my labour of love go unnoticed,” he added.
