Popular Nigerian fashion designer, Yomi Casual, has reacted to recent claims making the rounds on the Nigerian digital space that he is an homosexual.
It could be recalled that several controversies had hit the internet after a few blogging sites and netizens had called out the designer for being gay. Amidst the controversy, the designer’s wife, Grace, and his elder brother, AY countered the claims made about Yomi.
Taking to his social media post the iconic humour merchant, AY wrote, “It’s all about entertainment for these evil people. They are traits you will NEVER EVER trace to the Makuns. You already know who you marry, go to bed. As for the bloggers, I still have their tablets. Them go use backup accounts again when I strike as usual. Awon werey.”(sic)
However, breaking his silence on the situation, the fashion designer laid curses on several people who had made claims of him being a homosexual, Yomi Casual opposed the claims while raining curses on himself if it were indeed true that he is into men. He also said if the rumours were to be false, may the same curse befall those peddling the rumours.
Yomi wrote; ”It is always easy for friends and family to reach out and always say, “Ignore them… Silence is golden… they will get tired and move on to the next person.” But I am the one wearing the shoes, and I am the one feeling all pains and damages to my reputation as a father, husband, and businessman.”
“Coming out of church today and having reflected on all the lies against me, I want to say I am not too good a Christian who would turn and take a slap on the other cheek. Enough is enough. Should I Omoniyi, Olorunyomi Makun be gay or nurse any single idea of sleeping with a fellow man, may death take me before my time, and may everything that God has blessed me with be taken away from me.”
“May I not prosper in anything I lay my hands to do. May failure become my portion in everything that concerns me till death.”
“On the other hand, if these are fabrications borne out of envy, jealousy, wickedness, and insecurities, I pray for the same God to vindicate me. May those of you who enjoy and share such lies against me be also entertained with the pain you bring to my family.”
“May that thing that has kept you jobless remain in your lives till death. Today, I pronounce death, doom, and destruction on anyone who would continue to incite lies designed to assassinate my character. I also pronounce the same on those who fall and fly with it without confirmation.”
“MAY ALL THESE CURSES RETURN TO ME IF I AM TRULY GAY. Enough is enough!”
“Note: As you come here to say NO BLOG MENTIONED YOUR NAME, but some of you remembered to tag me or put in a comment with my name in their comment sessions… May you and your entire family suffer from depression and untimely death!’”(sic)
