In a Twitter thread, Nigerian media personality, Uti Nwachukwu has explained how religion and culture has turned a lot of people into conservatives.
Nwachukwu stated that alot of people are unable to be their true selves; because religion made them feel unclean and immoral when they engage in certain conversations.
He is of the opinion that culture and especially religion have greatly repressed Nigerians; when it comes to issues of sex and sexual liberation.
In a Twitter thread; he shared this afternoon, the actor opined that the repressive cultural and religious actions; are responsible for the seeming dangerous obsession of sexuality in Nigeria.
Here is what he said;
”Culture&especially religion have played major roles in chronically repressing Nigerians sexually.
That’s why the country seems to be dangerously obsessed with sexuality!
You condemn people; but you flock to public pages to express how much you don’t approve of their sexual Liberation.
It’s always who’s sleeping with who or what”
Uti Nwachukwu continued;
“Thats why when Someone Says or does something sexually explicit, Boom!!! THEY BLOW.
Confused much ?? Don’t know bout you; but if I despise someone/something, I stay totally away from all topics concerning it/them”
A couple of days ago, Uti mentioned in a social media post; that relationships are not ideal for time as well as energy these days.
According to him, people are also getting married for different reasons now; such as dating for money, to cover up the culture conditioned shame of being single; as well as marrying to cater for their families.
