A sketch showing a gay man raped is spread online in Nigeria


The video, created by the comedian Ogusbaba, represents him as a feminized gay man being sexually assaulted. It starts off with Ogusbaba at home, and he is visited by another man played by the actor Stephen Odimgbe. Ogusbaba invites him in excitedly, promising his guest that the night will be a “delight”, before asking him if they’re going to “have some fun”. “Oh yeah, we are going to dig it down together,” retorts his guest, before snapping his fingers which prompts two intimidating men to enter the scene. The four get into a confrontation about Ogusbaba being gay, with Odimgbe mocking him in a high-pitched voice: “I love you, you’re the apple of my eye.” The two men new to the scene set down a bag and begin to pull out objects that they talk about sexually assaulting Ogusbaba with. Starting with a banana, one man played by Jnr Pope says: “This one’s too small, don’t worry yourself,” then proceeds to pull out a cucumber, then a paw paw and finally a yam with a bottle of olive oil. The video ends uncomfortably, with two of the men holding Ogusbaba down while the third prepares to sexually assault the man for being gay. The video was debunked and condemned over propagating homophobia and violence.
