Actor Benson Okonkwo Denounces Gay Rumors: “I Have A Steady Girlfriend”

share on:

Nollywood actor Benson Okonkwo claims he’s straight as can possibly be.

The actor claimed that his on-screen persona didn’t translate into his real life, and that he even had a steady girlfriend.

Okonkwo said:

“They should understand that I am only acting and the roles have nothing to do with my personality. I get embarrassed when people mistake the part I play in a movie for reality and call me a gay.

And to think that I have always said that I am not gay! It really hurts… What my critics don’t know is that I have a steady girlfriend. But I won’t talk about her. I don’t like to talk about my private life.”
