Adekunle Gold had recently became the cover star of Quazar Magazine, a print media platform known for celebrating queer related creativity. Making an announcement of the feat, Gold asked fans to check out the exclusive editorial about his feature in the LGBTQ magazine.
This was after his wife, Simi, had apologized to the LGBTQ community for her previous homophobic comments. She tweeted;
“I see how things we say, even without meaning to can encourage prejudice. Your life is bigger, by far than my pride. So, I’m really, really sorry”.
Although at first, her apologies was accepted and it wasn’t until Adekunle Gold’s queer cover photo surfaced that many people realised the reason why she actually apologised.
For some Nigerians, her apology was insincere as they think she only apologized because her husband was to cover a queer magazine, so she had to apologize before it pops up.
Others believed it was a mere coincidence.
