Emeka Ike takes a stand against gay at Vchannel’s Celebrity Night out’

Popular Nollywood actor, Emeka Ike, who is on self-imposed sabbatical from the industry recently took a stand against legalizing gay marriage in the country at Vchannel Celebrity Night Out at Troy Lounge in Lagos.

Emeka, while fielding questions from April and Bridget, presenters from the cable station on state of the nation said Nigeria should not follow the footsteps of United Kingdom (UK) that legalized same-sex marriage recently.  ‘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.
Vchannel ‘Celebrity Night Out’ holds every other Friday with a major celebrity as guest. He will be put on hot seat to answer questions from presenters of the cable channel and audience. He will then club till late night with friends and fans at the popular mainland hangout, Troy.

  1. guy ike, u ‘re absolutely right, tell u what, i don’t really know what’s wrong with we nigerians. infact, time has come 4 we nigerian’s 2 stick 2 are own culture seriously, if must say.cuz, all this attitude of d western culture, that, we’re adopting into our culture.is distroying us as a people culturally & physically, if we must know.also, this gay shit, that’s happining here and there is full of shit.even, every one of us know’s that, the bible even conderm it aswell.meanwhile, take a look at, what’s happening in d nigerian movie industry kalled ( NOLLYWOOD)& d shit that’s going on there. ooh what a fuck.and, tell u what, ike u’re d man any time any day, 4 saying ur mind, if must confess, i really love ur gots& courage.plz, continue 2 b real.

  2. Emeka u’re right, we shouldn’t bring nonsense into our country and tell them to stop promoting it through movies/drama.tv drama like ‘Eye opener’ and all like it shouldn’t air in our country.please, they are using it to spread instead of to stop it.ok

  3. ike,2 let u know, there’s a day i waz watching (GOLDEN ICONS) interview with (JOHN OKAFOR),he mentioned this same word(GAY),and, he also, express his fillings about this gay shit. that’s going on in d movie industry, in that same interview,i watched him closely, he waz very beater about what’s going on in d movie industry such as u.and, if must say, is time d industry itself should try as much as possible 2 come 2gether 2 wipeout all this negative attitude of (GAY)shit out of d industry.plz, correct me if wrong.

  4. Emeka, u’re right, we must stick 2 our culture & 4get dat shit of UK which is killing us both physically & culturally. I must commend you 4 rising such issue.

  5. Mr Emeka, this actually reveals how shallow minded you are. Gay people are part of the society and are born that way. Why aren’t many Nigerians open minded? Just because you were born straight doesn’t make everyone straight. I see the reason why you dumb people set those Aluu boys on fire. Hmmm, I call this ignorance

    • Ola can u just listen to urself. Nobody is born gay or as a lesbian. Know that God created everythin male & female. & u dont know more than him. If u are one of them repent from it & turn to God. Failure to do that hell awaits u. That we dont want such way of life does not mean we are ignorant. I rather be ignorant & go to heaven than be so exposed, wild & experimental & go to hell. Its ur decision

    • you are a big fool, why putting ur d**k in a Man’s ass wen we have so many beautiful girls out there you can date or sleep with. you are such a disgrace to this country. i just wish they could pass a bill of death sentence for HOMOX like you. i pity you parents, if only they knew you will be a disgrace to them someday, they would have just aborted you.

  6. Point of Correction Ola. These people are nt born dat way. They are just deceivd by satan. Mark my words “Gay(sodomy) is nd stil a very great sin in d sight of God”
    so stop deceivin people wit dat k.

  7. Ola it seems u r gay,i dnt tink u read ur bible dats if u hav1.sosomy is a great sin dose in homosexual act r disgusting…cus dats a real shit…pls dnt preach abt it n stop endorsing it by television drama n muvie…pls we shud all b prayerful

  8. Well, if i was, all good. I am straight and would not interfere with anyones social way of life. When i lived in Nigeria, i thought i was the best lol very right whenever i argued. When i left the shores of Nigeria and made new friends ( Gay and straight) then i knew i lived all my life in a zoo called Nigera. I listened, opened my heart, learnt and still learning. Good luck you all.

    • Ola u’v nt really learned until ure able to filter ur so called xperiences gathrd…referng to nigeria as zoo den ure an animal without doubt

  9. ola main looking at what you are saying i will asume that you are gay too cus somebody with his actually mind can not say such a shit let me ask you this if your parent were gay will you be able to come into this world and God who create man knew that man need a companion that was y he create a woman to assist him or do you think that God is foolish that he create a woman, ok cum to think of it in the bible wat sin did sodom and gomorh commit in the bible that made God to destroy them with fire. shey the where part of the society and is them same God who create them destroy them cause the refuse to repent.let me correct ola the wheren’t born that way rather the choose to live their lives that way.so mind you if your parent where gay ola you wouldn’t come to existence so stop supporting evil and if you are gay ola you repent.they sins of SODOM AND GOMORH ARE BEGGING FOR VENGANCE IN HEAVEN SO support evil.

  10. wachu guyz talkin abt sef? Civilization, hw do u define it? Naija is a multi-religious family, so hw dare u reference to d bible in dis regard?…here we hav human right activist and gay life is a human right. Moreso, d bible has a different culture so if u wanna adopt its culture, damn urs….just imagine wat ike says, “he likes gay but hate gay marriage” wat an irony!

  11. yea my brother u ar right of what u said, and i think know body suported it, gay is bad inflase that can kill at any time we Nigeran, we don’t need it our God forbed it.

  12. Gay is an irresponsible manners those who feel ’em selve can’t take part in dis shit.a man was mearnt to share love with a woman not another man

  13. My brother emeka Ike God has giving you wisdom to say the right words, at the right time and at the right place, u’re @ the right place to fight for the right thing. Your fight is right God almighty that call you on this mission will fight for you and support you. I though watching Nigeria movies suppose to draw us to God not to sinned against God our creator. Because of our generation we should not encourage bad culture all in the name of making money by destroying what God created. Mr emeka Ike, you will face many battle on this issue but don’t give up because God almighty is with you and your ministry. God bless you sir. I supports you sir ride on.

  14. Ola u r a disgrace 2 humanity. Its a pity or rather unfortunate that u come on social network 2 utter such comment dat exposes u as a gay without doubt.

  15. wonder they say shall never end, please gay guys dont come and spoil our children!cause i dont know why you will leave woman with breast and every thing to go for your fellow men. Emeka keep the gud work

  16. Haha, these people are so violent. Homophobic nincompoops. What sort of conversation would come up if I say there is no God. Kill me?

  17. Why do you people travel to these western countries for better future? Did I hear you say their economy is better? It is no rocket science to know that you homophobic idiots are dumb. It is called civilization mates

  18. @ ola: afta looking at d conversation’s u made, u travelling out of nigeria made u worst. U’re 4rm yoruba rite? No wonder u r such an idiot. D gays u knw dat way r dey blacks or white? Do u knw hw d blacks suffered in d hands of whites b4 u were born? Men like martin luther king, malcom x, marcus garvey. They fought so dat u can travel out of naija without hindrances. But u decided 2 us ur freedom as a licence to f**k asses. In yoruba is it not a taboo 4u 2do dat? Just mind ur words. Nigeria’s not a gay country nd ur like’s will not spoil naija 4 us. Mtcheeeew. ASHAWO.

  19. Why are we (Nigerian) embarrassing other countries culture. Gay marriage shouldn’t be allowed in Nigeria. Dang!!! That’s nasty

  20. I agree with Ola, u r all idiots and that is why ur country is a mess. If you don’t like something just mind ur own business. Nobody even asked ur opinion

    • ola u are taking a very foolish decision pls change or u haue yourself 2 blaim yoruba homo
