In this article I will be sharing with you 6 Nigerian female celebrities who are accused of been lesbian. Some notable Nigerian female celebrities have been accused of being lesbian. The Nigerian entertainment industry has been fueled by rumors and speculations about a few of our favorite female celebrities being lesbian. One rumor that really seems to get everybody’s attention surrounds Nigerian celebrities and their sexuality. Today, we will be taking a look at some of our Nigerian female celebrities who have been rumored to be lesbian.
1. Genevieve Nnaji
Rumors of Genevieve being a lesbian began in 2013 when she was alleged to be involved in an affair with Benin Republic actress, Ella Martins after a picture of them kissing surfaced online. Speaking about the picture, Ella Martins confessed that she kissed Genevieve Nnaji, but just a normal one with no string attached. According to her words; “We kissed, but it was nothing extraordinary, it was normal kiss between girls. I mean girls do kiss each other normally, even guys do too.
In 2019 there was another rumor that Genevieve Nnaji was having a lesbian affair with her friend and business partner Chinny Onwugbenu. It is said that the duo have been together for a while now, disguised as best friends and sisters, but have something more, which they share secretly.
What birthed such rumor was the fact that Chinny Onwugbenu and Genevieve Nnaji are always spotted hanging out together both in the country and outside the country. And since both ladies are unmarried and in their 40’s many believe what they share is beyond friendship.
2. Linda Ikeji
Popular Nigerian Blogger Linda Ikeji has been accused of been a lesbian. All this started in 2016, when she refused to break the news of Chidinma Miss Anambra lesbian scandal that went viral. Bloggers and readers were quick to notice that almighty Linda Ikeji, the queen of breaking scandalous news did not even make a post about Miss Anambra lesbian scandal that went viral. Not to judge but the news of Chidinma was a hit, why didn’t Linda Ikeji post about it? And also for the fact that she hardly mingle with men but only female folks.
3. Iyabo Ojo
In early 2011, Nollywood actress Iyabo Ojo founded sexy pink ladies and stated that her primary aim was to bring women together irrespective of their age or social class to support each other and share ideas in business, health and improve family values. But since they were only women in the group, Nigerians rumored it to be a lesbian group because of the rumors, Iyabo Ojo changed the name from sexy pink ladies to Pinkies foundation.
Apart from lesbianism allegations surrounding the pinkies foundation, Nigerians also assumed she was using the foundation to pimp women to politicians. Fast forward to 2017, lesbianism rumors concerning Iyabo Ojo came up again after the Nollywood actress shocked her PA, Gbeminiyi with a brand new car for her birthday which raised many eyebrows. Iyabo Ojo also threw a lavish birthday party for Gbeminiyi and since then many Nigerian believe the relationship she has with her PA is not out of the ordinary.
4. Uche Ogbodo
Nollywood actress, Uche Ogbodo, definitely knows things that will cause a problem for many yet she is not bothered because she needs to do her job well. The actress shared a controversial photo of her kissing fellow actress, Rosaline Meurer in November 2018 and she did not get a warm reception to it. While she was being tongue-lashed by a self-claimed fan, the actress stated it clearly that she was only acting her role and never a lesbian as perceived by few.
5. Ruth Kadiri
Take a look at the picture above, is there anything wrong with it? I don’t see anything wrong with the picture but some Nigerians labeled the Nollywood actress a lesbian after she posted the picture on Instagram. Even though she is married and recently put to birth, there are still some low-thinking Nigerians who believe she is a lesbian.
6. Rita Dominic
If you have been following Nollywood in the past, you will agree with me that no one plays a lesbian role better than Rita Dominic. Classically recall the scene with Rita Dominic and Bimbo Akintola and the ‘Girls Cot Movie., hmmm, while we all admitted it was just good acting, speculations began… Adding fuel to the fact that she is in her 40’s and still single. In 2015 it was speculated that she was involved with a presenter Michelle Dede especially after posting a photo of them kissing and getting fuzzy and hanging out. Rita Dominic even tried to push the rumors away by posing with an engagement ring and saying she was just friends with Dede but some Nigerians still believe she has a skeleton in her cupboard.
