Nigerian Actor Uche Maduagwu Comes Out as “Proudly Gay”

1/29/21 | Out

Controversial Nollywood actor Uche Maduagwu came out as “proudly gay” in a Instagram post yesterday. The actor best known off-screen for trolling fellow artists and other public figures also had some words of wisdom for his fellow Nigerians. “Appreciate others and #share only love we need to respect peoples choices not to judge them,” the actor and influencer shared, before adding “so lets practice jesus kind of love.” His coming out announcement had mixed responses. One homophobic commenter was offended, saying she would “unfollow immediately.” Others quickly called her out, saying that “stupidity is in the blood.” But another voiced support, writing “so proud of you.” The intellectual Maduagwu, who earned a degree in sociology from Lagos State University, garnered kudos for his onscreen acting talents but also controversy for his notorious trolling of celebrities and public figures. He sent waves through the Nollywood late last year when he alleged he was sexually assaulted on a Lagos movie set in 2012, and further claimed such abuse is uncomfortably common in the industry.
