Nigerian actor and self-styled brand influencer, Uche Maduagwu, has revealed he’s not gay after months of claiming to be a member of the LGBTQ community.
Recall that Maduagwu had taken to Instagram in January 2021 to publicly declare that he was gay. He even shared pictures of him putting on a red bra.
However, he made a u-turn via his Instagram post on Monday, April 19th, 2021 and declared that he was no longer gay.
He stated that he was only using his celebrity status to fight for the rights of LGBT in Nigeria.
Maduagwu disclosed that ever since he came out as gay, he has lost movie roles, endorsement deals and even his girlfriend left him for claiming to be a member of the LGBT community.
In his words;
“Dear fans I am not Gay i lost movie roles endorsement and my girlfriend fighting for LGBT right in Nigeria
“Omg even my girlfriend left me despite knowing i was fighting for LGBT right in naija but i no regret using my celebrity status to fighting for this beautiful community.”
