“I don’t support gay marriage, God does not like it” – Emeka Ike

Emeka IkeEmeka Ike has stated categorically that he does not support any plan to legalise gay marriage in Nigeria, as it is against God’s will.
The Nollywood actor, who is on a self-imposed sabbatical from the movie industry, was responding to questions at Vchannel Celebrity Night Out at Troy Lounge in Lagos.
He said: “Knowing our penchant for ‘copying’ others I want to plead with Nigerians not to encourage same sex marriage. I don’t hate gay but I don’t support gay marriage either. God does not want it, our culture forbids it. We should not encourage what is not right.
“This is about defending whatever is left of our culture. Nigeria should not go the way of UK, we are people of culture. I want our legislators to stick to their guns and not legalise what will be eroding our culture and make us godless people.”
He also spoke about family, acting and the lingering AGN crisis. Actors, Chidi Mokeme and Yomi Fash Lanso were at the event to support one of their own
