Popular Nigerian Gay rights activist, Bisi Alimi has said that homosexuality was not a crime in Africa until the colonizers came and introduced Christianity which ruined everything.
He added that one cannot demand for decolonization of Africa while also being against homosexuality.
"History 101; not one single African was a Christian before encounter with the colonisers. Homosexuality was not a criminal offence in Africa before the colonisers came. You can’t demand decolinising Africa and be homophobic at same time. Choose a side".
