James Brown, the controversial Nigerian crossdresser, has reacted to the arrest of 67 persons in Delta over their alleged involvement in homosexuality.
The police in Delta on Monday apprehended the suspects for allegedly attending a gay wedding.
Bright Edafe, the command spokesperson, said the suspects would be charged in court upon completion of investigations.
In his reaction, Brown urged people interested in practicing homosexuality to consider doing so in more accepting countries abroad.
He also stressed the limitations of self-expression in Nigeria.
Brown advised people to exercise their rights while respecting the country’s legal limitations.
“You know say Nigeria no like people like una, una come carry mic, come carry tent, come dey do party,” he said.
“Yes, you no do anything wrong but the country you are says you are. They say when you are in Rome, act like Rome.
“I am sorry this happened but if you want to express yourself, go to Rome, London, Italy, US. There is a limitation of expression in Nigeria, so follow the limitation.”
Brown came into the limelight after a video went viral where he made a grammatical blunder — “they didn’t caught me” — following his arrest a few years ago.
In 2020, he addressed himself as a cross-dresser while dousing rumoured rivalry with Bobrisky.
