Nollywood actor, Alexx Ekubo, has once again denied that he is gay.
Ekubo who made the denial in an Instagram post on Wednesday, however, urged Nigerians to let people be gay if they want to be.
Ekubo had been accused of dating fellow actor, Uti Nwachukwu, an allegation they have both denied several times.
Ekubo, in his New Year message, 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.”
The actor urged Nigerian youths to stop being envious of others but to appreciate hard work.
“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!”
Ekubo said he would continue to pay tithe even if his pastor uses church money to buy a private jet or a Rolls Royce.
“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.
