This issues are gradually becoming non-ignoble in the society,I found this article about this celebrity complaining about Nigeria gay stand and progressions.
This is serious.
BLOC PARTY frontman KELE OKEREKE finds it difficult to relate to his Nigerian heritage - because of the country's stance on women's rights and homosexuality.
The openly gay singer was born in Britain (The guy with Dreadlocks), but both his parents hail from Nigeria, where homosexuality is a highly contentious issue.
And Okereke insists the country's viewpoint on gays, as well as women's rights, makes it tough for him to feel a connection to the African nation.
He tells Britain's Attitude magazine, "I was born in the U.K. and my parents are Nigerian. Fundamentally, I do have problems with a lot of what I perceive to be Nigerian culture. How they treat women. How they treat gays. It's a very hierarchical system where you always have to defer to your elders even if you know them to not be right. That's something I personally disagree with. I think everything should be open to discussion. To reason is part of being human.
"Nigeria is part of my heritage. I'd like to explore it. I love African music. I love African food. I love African people when I meet them. But these things are very complicated for me personally."
