2. Susan Peters
She once reacted to rumours of her being a l*sbi@n: ‘’I am not a l*sbi@n. I have never practised l*sbi@nism. People who know me know that Susan Peters is not a l*sbi@n. Maybe, the speculation was because of my masculine structure. I am masculine because I used to participate in games a lot before.I played basketball, ran, played golf but I stopped at somepoint because I was developing muscles.
If I goback into gym now, I will develop those muscles but I am not g*y. People should stop tagging me as g*y.I love the other s*-x, I don’t like g*y. I have female friends but I have more of male friends. I have a boyfriend mind you, not boyfriends. But I have male friends because I prefer male friends to female friends because they are more comfortable to be with. I am not saying I don’t like my female friends.
I have female friends but I love more of male friends. So, people should stop saying I am g*y,I am a full-fledged straight woman.’’
3. Genevieve Nnaji
The story that Beninoise actress/musician, Ella Martins and Nollywood superstar, Genevieve Nnaji, are l*sbi@ns was actually broken by an online magazine last year and it created a big buzz. Though both Ella Martins and Geneiveve reportedly, swiftly reacted to squash it all but it would seem the echoes are still being heard as Ella recently evealed to Vanguard that the rumour has affected her.
You became popular in Nigeria after that allegation of l*sbi@nism between you and Genevieve. How did that little scandal affect you and your career?
Yes, it has affected my emotional life, because everybody now believes I am in a relationship with Genny and my family is not happy about it. It has really affected my career and image at home.
Have you had any similar issue back home before then?
I have never been tagged that before. It is something that is completely new to me. There has never been a time Iwas accused of being a lesbian. One little thinghappened about me and Genevieve Nnaji and everyone now believes I am a l,sbi@n. It is very touching and depressing.
What actually happened between you and Genny that sparked the allegation?
Hmm, you know I speak more of French than English,so, it is a little hard for me to express myself fully. What happened is that Genny and I were in a club in Lagos and her phone got missing. Later, I think a paparazzi or someone got hold of it and started sharing some contents about me and Genny online. I don’t see anything abnormal in the pictures but people started talking that we must be l*sbi,ns and all.
What kind of pictures are you talking about?
As normal persons and friends, we do take normal pictures at home and in other places but I don’t know why the online magazine showed Genevieve and I kissing, I am surprised and don’t know where they got those pictures from. So, you and Genevieve were never kissing each other in any pictures you took together? “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. When I was dating Fally Ipupa we used to kiss and now that we are separated and are good friends we still continue kissing like we used to. My fear is I receive strange calls saying that in a few days’ time they will be releasing more pictures about us.”
