What They Say III

Mr-Universe-Nigeria-2014-August-2014-pulseThe blogosphere knew him as Francis Beaon at the time of his win of the Mr Universe Nigeria contest. And, according to his recent interview with nationonlineng.net, he is Francis Egwuatu, final year student of the Federal University of Technology, Owerri. I don’t know which one is which, and that is none of my business.

My business however are some of the things he said during this interview with Tolu George originally published on nationonlineng.net. It was the usual may-we-know-you oh-you’re-so-famous-now yada-yada.

And then they got around to what usually interests me in these celebrity interviews – the controversial aspects, in this case, the gay talk.

The interviewer questioned: Some people believe Mr. Universe Nigeria is a pageant for gays. What is your view on this assertion?

And our esteemed pageant winner replied: ‘I am not gay, and it is very annoying when people make such comments. There was this girl that added me on twitter. She was like; ‘Tell me the truth, are you gay?’ It was so annoying. Some people think that for you to win the pageant you must be gay and men must sleep with you and all, but that’s not true. I just wish I could do a story and the heading will just be ‘I am not gay’. People have concluded in their mind that we are gays. Even when I was profiled on Linda Ikeji’s blog, there were comments like, gay alert; the guy is gay and all that. People feel if you are a male pageant contestant, the only hard work you need to do is to sleep in the room. That’s a negative thought, but I believe a person with a positive thought won’t think like that. For me, you just have to be positive; you just have to believe in yourself. I have gone for pageants that I lost (Mr. Tourism Nigeria), but that didn’t stop me from going for more.’

Tolu George: What do you think about gays?

Mr Universe Nigeria: ‘Actually, it’s bad in our country. It’s not right; God has made it a man to woman, not a man to man or woman to woman. It’s very wrong, just like its meant to be a negative to positive not positive to positive or a negative to negative, it’s quite bad, I don’t think it’s cool.’

Well, according to reliable sources, so reliable they date back to friendships in his school in Federal University of Technology, Owerri… these sources have said things and a lot more things. Whether true or not is none of my business. That’s all I’m going to say for now. *stirring just a touch of sweetener into my tea*

  1. Umm, Pinky? Are we so starved of content here that we have to read about this guy TWICE? I almost sent you the link days ago then changed my mind.

    You dragged him here to be eviscerated, didn’t you? His God is alive oh!

    Dude is hilarious though: “People feel if you are a male pageant contestant the only hard work you need to do is sleep in the room.” Never met anyone who talks like that. LMAO.

  2. I hate when gay people shit on other gay people just to declare their “ungayness”. As much as I don’t expect him to agree he was gay, the second comment me made was in bad taste. These bimbos always get on my nerves!

    Fairies have come from European villa hostel in umuchima (for those familiar with FUTO) bearing tales.

    Hypocrite! See as him be with him flat nyansh!!!

    • Lol. Oh my! Dennis,this one has got u all riled up, hasn’t he? Sotey u launch pidgin english take finish am!LMAO. (That niccur’s ass really IS flat sha; and he doesn’t even know how to stand/pose to disguise d flatness…hehehe!)

      • LOL! E pain me enter belle and you know I rarely use pidgin english! I know people who know this bimbo reach house and I know how he rolls.

        About the posture, Absalom was talking about a trick that makes your ass look bigger! Absalom my darling, please can you expantiate

  3. The things they are saying is that he’s gay, abi?
    I have no problem with any public figure debunking any rumours or questions about his sexuality to the public. That is entirely his prerogative. But I’m extremely averse to gay men who shit on the gay community in a bid to add some shine to their public image. In my opinion, they are worse than the anti-gay population that does the same.

  4. You may choose to remain in your closet, but don’t make the rest of us look bad so you can look good to the people. That is hypocrisy on a level I can’t stomach.

  5. He’s gay. But he’s still a learner cos he can’t answer questions well.
    And he’s butt ugly.
    I’m sure he has stretchmarks on his flat ass.

  6. He’s just a dumb bitch who doesnt know how to handle controversial questions with diplomacy… Making everyone else look bad is a no no!!!…
    Pls don’t put up his ugly face here again…
    BTW, where’s my write up???@ pinky

  7. He totally misinterpreted and misunderstood the question! The interviewer asked about his perception on the general assertion. But the dunderhead, in a bid to defend his shriveled ass became unnecessarily defensive… and uber-judgemental! What a way to misconstrue… reason people like him fail exams!
    Well, totally not his fault. It was haphazard and was his only strategy to an end. It was expected. Making a pro-gay statement woulda added gasoline to fire. He said exactly what the majority wanted to hear.
    The part of “according to reliable sources”… *sigh* I just can’t with that… got better things to do.

  8. Chimoooo!!! Mr Universe,Kdiarians are goin to finish u today!lol. Gay naija celebs really need some sort of PR training on how to answer “sensitive” questions during an interview, without compromising their true identity, nor incurring d wrath (oh and dat wrath is FIERY!) Of the gay community. No finesse or diplomacy or tact…smh

  9. I don’t blame him. He is just afraid. And that’s a perfectly human thing. I won’t say he is a bad person just because he is afraid.

  10. Looking up at the lineup of much more handsome men that competed I can only believe one way with which he won. And I’m sure it wasn’t cause he answered the “what is your aspiration in life question” like a pro.

    It’s too early to be drinking in the morning so *sips mint tea*

  11. LWKMD!!! Pinky you’re just a wicked Witch of the west!!you dragged this poor boy out here to be gutted by us abi? he goes to school in the East and we all know how narrowminded and bigoted eastern schools can be. I pity him cos not long ago I was there,, that deep crushing fear of anyone ever finding out that you’re gay. his answers r borne out of deep fear. I would rip into him with a tiny pink handled knife, but I truly feel his plight. I can imagine the great rush of fear, panic and trepidation he must have felt when that question rammed into him frol nowhere. I however have zero sympathy for gays who shit on other gays to feel good abt themselves. eg our former Big Brother Africa winner who was soundly visited by Queen Karma not too long ago …

      • @Dennis, we all know that the moment there’s even a slight rumor about your sexuality on campus, your reputation is irreparably damaged. You will immediately be cast into the Pariahs bin and spat upon with contempt and hatred. Its a fate i wouldnt wish on even my enemies. So i cant understand his deep fear, but his lashing out at gays was stupid and unnecessary … fear must have addled his wits however …

  12. Saw him at Ikeja mall day after the pageant. Walked up to him and smiled, he smiled, we said some nice things and pumped hands- and I was instantly gaylectrocuted.

  13. That sweetner had better be sweet indeed!…He is making a slight mistake and that is he shouldn’t be cornered into saying more than he isn’t gay…coz boi if you’ve tasted any guys cakes before like say in school or so….ahem..ur in for it luv!

  14. Eya,poor boy! May God grant u d grace to grow up,give u wisdom that comes with courage. That boy is a true picture of what many of our bros go tru.when I think of him answering those questions honestly (saying,yes,im gay) I remember Bisi Alimi and Rev Jide M.its a few of us including d condenmers that can do otherwise. A friend I met online today who claims he is verse told me he is not gay but just has weakness by sleeping with men.We will get there.its well

  15. Hahahahahahahahaha.
    So much bile and “righteous indignation” trailing this post.

    He is still a “kid” though. Little wonder he couldn’t deal diplomatically with the questions he was asked. Maybe he has been openly accused of being gay before and (in this our openly homophobic society) he felt that this will be his only chance to debunk the rumors and accusations.

    In addition, his parents might have to watch the interview and he has to be vehement in his renunciation of gayism (if there is a word like that)

    Let us all calm down and forget the guy. Nothing he says will make society paint us darker that we are already painted and no amount of goodwill he portrays towards us will make society see us in a better light. Let’s ignore him and his statements. He is just a tiny, negligible smudge on our radar.

  16. That sentence in the first answer about ‘sleeping in the room’, I read it like three tines because I thought I had missed a word or I wasn’t reading it right…….hmmmmm!

    In other news, don’t be too hard on him. The media asks these kind of questions to have sensational headlines that will draw readers’ attentions. But hold up…what were you guys expecting him to say?

  17. Hey guys, you really can’t blame him the guy is a FUTO student. It mostly is an occupational hazard. It is said that us Futoites are only good at calculations and stuff, English doesn’t always come easy to a lot of us. Im still shocked he won though. There are so many fine ass guys with mega ripped bods even in FUTO. Another saying i love, ‘when the best is not available the available becomes the best’. If he had lost at least we’d have been saved the stress of having to endure his rubbish.

  18. hey pinky, i have read a ton of your posts but never gotten myself to post Buh i came across this a few minutes ago and hanny i just had to speak. There are verrrrrrrrrrrry strong jist about every winner in that pageant, hanny i mean every winner so when his royal majesty, the idealist of them all, drops them falseness, i cringe…. .jizesss, is this how people used to do
