40% of married Nigerian men are bisexual—Halimar Abubakar


Top Nigerian actress Halima Abubakar has said that 40% of Nigerian men are “Down-low” (bisexual).

Abubakar on August 25 took to her social media account to send a cryptic message which set the platform agog as many of her friends and followers read meanings to the message.

The Kogi state born actress simply posted, “Don’t blame people who jump from one girl to another. Some times what they really want is another man. Don’t hurt yourself. Dust yourself and move on.”

In an exclusive interview with the PUNCH newspaper, the talented thespian explained her reasons for making such an utterance and advised such people to be open about their sexuality instead of inflicting pains on their families and others.

She said:  “We have over 40 percent of down-low (bi-sexual married men) in Nigeria, whether you want to believe it or not. Sadly, their families don’t even know. Instead of them putting their families through hurt, infect them with various diseases and end up killing their wives or themselves because they are scared to open up, I feel they should be truthful and realistic about their needs and put it first before anything.

“I know so many people who are married and they are bi-sexual. I’m saying this because it is the truth and those reacting are the guilty ones. Tell me why a man will change girls at random? What exactly are they looking for if it is not a man? Nigerians don’t accept the truth because half of us are hypocrites. I Halima Abubakar am telling you that a lot of people are bi-sexual. They should save the lives of future generations by coming out, if they don’t want to come out, they should not get married.

She continued, “If they want just a child, they can afford surrogacy. You won’t believe some of these people have nine children, tell me what they want nine children for only to go and end up with a man. That’s destroying somebody’s life.

I’ve been hinting about it for a long time now so I just needed to say it like this.
