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

Emeka, while fielding questions from Vchannel presenters, said Nigeria should not follow the footsteps of United Kingdom (UK) that legalised 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 gays 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 a 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’s ‘Celebrity Night Out’ holds every other Friday with a major celebrity as guest. He will be put on the 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.
