I was born gay - Nigerian homosexual Bisi Alimi claims
Alimi had a normal upbringing and grew up like a normal boy in the Mushin area of Lagos State, before coming out in 2004 on national television as a guest on Funmi Iyanda's New Dawn with Funmi, a talk show on the Nigeria Television Authority, (NTA), to declare that he is a homosexual, but now says he was born the way he is.
Alimi who is planning to tie the knots with his gay partner, Anthony, in a few weeks time, posted this on his wall:
"Living an authentic life is fulfilling. It might not make you rich or famous. It might not get you the 'the best things' in life. But it will get you one thing. One big thing."
"The pleasure of appreciating who you see when you look in the mirror. Living your authentic self will put a smile on your face even when you are having a shitty day. It's the best gift you can give you. Know thyself, love thyself
I love y'all always."
