Nollywood actor, Godwin Maduagu has announced that he is gay, and he is now living his truth.
The actor who had denied the allegation when his sex tape leaked last year made this known in a viral video.
He was spotted in a video having sex with a man.
Maduagu had said he was having suicidal thoughts and battling with the effect of the scandal.
However, in a new video on his Instagram on Tuesday, the actor included the rainbow flag, which is a symbol of the lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) community.
He revealed that his close friends set him up and blackmailed him with the sex tape.
Maduagu said he would have committed suicide if not for the words of encouragement from “my family”.
He urged Nigerians to stop blackmailing their loved ones.
“After getting a better life for myself, my close friends set me up, blackmailed me, and leaked my sex tape. I became depressed and almost committed suicide.
“My family saved me by giving me words of encouragement and advice that kept me going. Look at me now living my truth because I’ve now gotten a strong thick skin.
“Love is love. Say no to blackmail. What will people say have killed a lot of people,” he said.
