Anti-gay threats from Nigerian bread-seller turned model

Nigerian model Olajumoke Orisaguna, who was discovered only two years ago as she sold bread on the streets of Lagos, has recorded a video in which she condemns and threatens homosexuals.

Orisaguna was discovered in 2016 during a photo shoot in Lagos by super-star musician and photographer Ty Bello, who spotted her hawking bread. She was then offered a modeling contract and support for her family.

Her quick transition into modeling included an offer by Sujimoto Group and Poise Nigeria to instruct her in English, but she remains uneducated. Like many other Nigerians, she wallows in deep ignorance about homosexuality.

In the video, she spoke Yoruba throughout while acting like she is shocked about the fact that some people are gay and that some gay people actually have the right to marry persons of the same sex despite the fact that some societies try to stifle this dream for gay people with harsh homophobic laws.

Orisaguna repeated other uneducated Nigerians’ typical uninformed claims that homosexuality is un-Nigerian and that people are not born gay or lesbian.

 “I know that there is no Nigerian that was born as a gay or lesbian,” she said in Yoruba.

She also said that she found it difficult to sleep after she discovered on Facebook that some gay men and women plan marry persons of the same sex.  Further, she even  threatened homosexuals, saying that they “will be dealt with” if they are “found.”

“If such an individual is found, the person will be dealt with in ways you can’t imagine,” she said.

You can watch the video below (in Yoruba).

    I would not give this women any publicity here on my Facebook page, as I have said before it is the straight women who adamantly oppose gay people even as it is they as mothers who bare them.

    This person has no regard for the life of a human being who is gay. Her lack of education is a good example of the ignorance of people who are educated about the subject and as she is young she is targeting her age group about the subject which will cause more harm than good.

    She like some other Nigerian artists use their fame as a platform to gain more popularity like the preachers of churches do when they talk against gay people to gain more members. This is, but a very well known tactic to use or accuse the innocent and blame them to hide their own negative agenda.

    There are many uneducated people in Nigeria and Nigeria has been one of the most violent countries in the continent of Africa. It is easy for someone with popularity to influence the minds of the ignorant and cause undoes distress and harm to individuals who just do not fit the heterosexual life style.

    A great tolerance and compassion is needed, rather than divisive judgment and condemnation, which goes against forgiveness, caring and the love for another that Jesus Christ talk. This is the hidden agenda of the evil spirit of Moloch to use his advocates in continuing the blood sacrificing of human beings as it was in the ancient times of human sacrifices.

    Gay people are not a threat to anyone, except those who hate them out of pure hatred, which frankly is not instigated by gay people, but those people’s hidden evil worshiping agenda. The people of Nigeria have to wake up to these types of people who use the innocence of others to promotes their hatred and divide the love of one another.

    When this women’s fame falls, no one will buy her bread until she asks God to forgive for what she has done. Yes there are people who do go whoring and prostituting around and making money and at the same time putting their lives on the line, in being murder or catching some sexually harmful disease. However this is not exclusive to the gay people, but more so to the heterosexual community, from whom the gay people are a reflection of they.
