“Nigeria doesn’t like you. Go to Rome, London, US if you want to express yourself” – James Brown tells gay men arrested in Delta state (video)
Nigerian crossdresser, James Brown has criticized the suspected gay men who were arrested in Delta State for holding a same-sex wedding.
In a video shared on his Instagram page, the crossdresser who gained popularity after he was arrested for reportedly attending a gay event in Lagos in 2018, stated that these men should have obeyed the law and refrained from holding a gay wedding.
He added that Nigeria, as a nation, is not accepting of queer people, so the suspects should have kept their activities private.

The young men were paraded at the police headquarters in Asaba, Delta State, on Wednesday August 29, and the video sparked a huge buzz on social media, stirring reactions from Nigerians as well as celebrities.
