A new Nollywood movie with a lesbian theme is set to promote lies against the very nature of what it means to be gay.

Two powerful Nigerian actresses Liz Benson and Kate Henshaw both played the lead roles in this new movie titled ‘Busted’.

Actor Ik Ogbonna, Paul Obazele and a couple of new faces also featured in the movie.

The movie tells the story of a certain Queen Edwards, a girl born into what is depicted in the movie to be a ‘decent’ home where it was also portrayed that because of her father’s strict nature as well as her mother’s ‘ignorance’ she had an affair with a maid of which the incidence turned her into a lesbian.

The movie also tried to link gay relationships to promiscuity as the portrayed Queen is shown to have had several relationships with other women with the sole intention of breaking their hearts in revenge.

In fact the overall purpose of the movie was to once again convince people that homosexuality is evil, unnatural and as well as celebrate the passage of the anti-same sex marriage law in Nigeria.

The movie which is also titled ‘The Lone Road’ is produced by Face Onu and Lisa Onu.

This is clearly a misrepresentation of the true nature of what it means to be gay. People are gay because they are gay. Several research studies have tried to explain the complexity of human sexuality, but none has ever been factually accurate as to prove what exactly makes a person to be gay.

It is quite shameful that well respected Nollywood actresses and actors, and even renowned movie makers, will choose to take part in this kind of classless project.

As usual with a lot of Nollywood movies, there is absolutely nothing notable about this movie, as it is even clear that the subjects raised in this movie were not researched leading to an overall trashy generalized and purely sensationalized material.

We look forward to when Nollywood will be genuinely ready to represent the realities of LGBT persons through its films.

    I can’t believe Liz Benson has lowered her standards so much as to be part of drivel like this. I had so much respect for her.

    We all know this is a very sensitive topic yea? but we must also remember that the Nigerian Constitution does not support homosexuality so therefore whether there is scientific proof or not it is Unacceptable. This movie on the other hand is trying to create awareness and shun the act in Nigeria.

    don’t blame kate henshaw or liz benson for anything…. they were only interpreting a role as an actress they are….to me, there’s nothing wrong in the movie cos they were only acting based on the script given to them….

      ???

      No be every script man dey collect act unless poverty and co is worrying person. If this was some movie endorsing the lynching of LGBT people would you still be saying they are just acting a role?!

      Movies have an impact on society on small, medium to large scale. You don’t just wake up act and go back to bed unbothered by the possible consequences of your actions

    Obviously, Everyone commenting negatively here i bet non has watched the FULL movie before their judgements.

    ***NIGERIA IS A COUNTRY WHERE THE PEOPLE SUFFERS AND SMILES.
    ***WHERE THE TRUTH HURTS AND VERY SENSITIVE.
    ***WHERE PEOPLE LIVES IN DEEP PRETENCE BUT IN REALITY THEY ARE WORST.
    ***WHERE PEOPLE WILL PREACH ALL THE VERSES OF BIBLE YET THEIR ACTIONS WILL
    SHOW DIFFERENT BEHAVIOUR.
    ***NIGERIA IS ONE OF THE MOST POPULAR RELIGIOUS NATION ON EARTH YET THE RELIGION HAS NOT SAVED US FROM POVERTY BUT IT ENRICHED THE SMART RELIGIOUS LEADERS WITH SOME OF THEM HAVING DIFFERENT PRIVATE JETS AND EXPENSIVE HOUSES/CARS WHILE THEIR FOLLOWERS GETTING POORER. THE SAME RELIGION CAUSES HATRED AND DIVISIONS AMONG US AND KILLINGS. THE SAME RELIGION SMART PEOPLE PREFERS TO SWEAR OATH WITH BECAUSE THEY KNOW THEY WILL NEVER KEEP THE PROMISES…OUR POLITICIANS ARE EXAMPLES- IF THEY ARE TO SWEAR WITH ORACLE THEY MUST KEEP THE PROMISES OR MEET THEIR DEATH.

    NIGERIANS should not shy away from telling stories of gays and lesibians through movies or any other means and this movie is example. It does not mean to promote gays but to help people to understand some factors that contributes to it and how best to control those factors thereby minimizing the chances of having more gays.

    I am not gay, in fact i used to be homophobic in the past (blame it on religion) until one day i listened to a young boy who was very kind and good in everything except he was gay, his story changed my hatred towards gay when he told me how he was abused sexualy by a male religious leader. Same religious leaders that preaches hatred on gays but in a closed door they do the gay acts.

    I have come to realize that these gays we are talking about are not ALIENS but our brothers, sisters, friends, relatives, sons, daughters therefore killing our love ones because they are gays or sending them to 14 years in prisonment CAN NEVER stop gays rather sending someone in prison will make him even MORE gay as he will spend the whole years in prison with only men…….sometimes we should keep religion away and apply common sense on how best we can help/counsel gays and learn the things we should do to minimize the chances of the upcoming children from falling into the same category.

    In my own research i will tell you that some people are introduced into gays while some are born gays.
    BORN GAYS: When a male child is showing characteristics of a girl as early as 5 to 8 years old that is ONE of the signs that he was born gay.
    INTRODUCED INTO GAY: If yours FIRST SEXUAL EXPERIENCE was with same sex (by abuse/rape or lured/enticed ) you will still find yourself going back to same sex even when you tried everything to control it you can’t control the feelings.

    The best help for gays are not by sending them to prisons or killing them as that CAN NEVER stop gays but counseling and listening to their stories will help us to learn more on how we can protect the upcoming children by so doing we will keep gay at minimal. Counselling is not to stop the gay overnight but it will help in their health protection, behaviours and psychological help to avoid committing suicide as we have nothing to gain from someone killing himself but we have a lot to gain if such person live to contribute his share in making us a great nation.

    There are some things parents should know on how to minimize the chances of their children ending up as gay. Let me say few here:
    1. PUBERTY: Once a child reach puberty age his reproductive organs will start production therefore he need to be monitored and guided so he won’t fall prey to wrong person. Children in puberty are like in “heat period” their body are on fire and sexual confused, although most of them masturbates but they are always eager to try the practical sex. If not guided, if he mistakenly have sex with man then his feelings will be for the men as it is his “first time sex experience”. Trying to covert it may not be easier, at most he will end up Bisexual.
    2. BOARDING SCHOOL: Parents should be careful when sending children to boarding schools where they will be put together with seniors much older than them, many gays in puberty were abused or raped in boarding schools and they were threatened never to speak out or they will be beaten.
    3. LAST BORN & ONLY CHILD: In Nigeria we value male child more than female, In a family that have only son or where there are 3 daughters and one son, the son will be highly pampered, he will not be allowed to work and or do things other males of his age are doing thereby he will end up being soft like a woman, playing with women and MAY finally end up as gay.
    4. RELIGIOUS LEADERS: In Nigeria and Africa we sees religious leaders like God, You can imagine where a religious leader told members to eat grasses and they obeyed. Parents should be careful the way they entrust their children in the hands of religious leaders.
    5. NEIGHBOUR: You may not know that your neighbour is gay. If parents doesn’t guide their children in puberty their neighbour may do the job for them and that may end up in gay. Some sex education is good when children reach puberty and that will make them know the wrong and right and how to go about it. It will also give children confidence to hide no secrete to their parents.

    With this little from me, I do support more movies like “BUSTED” It will help families to know something they should do to lesser the chances of their children ending up as gays and by so doing it will keep gay at minimal.

    THE BITTER TRUTH is that gays cannot be 100% eradicated in Nigeria or any other country in the world no matter amount of killing or high prison sentence will stop it therefore learning how to manage it and keep it at minimal is the best thing we can do as a nation and not shying away from the truth or hiding behind religion to preach hate as no amount of hate can stop gays.
