The comments are a matter for dismay - the hatred and bigotry are appalling.

So they are, but I did quite enjoy the lyricism of this one:

It’s Nigerian Pidgin, though I’ve not seen it written before.

Something I wonder about: One often hears the bigots claiming that homosexuality is "un-African." I am curious to know whether Africans have in fact traditionally been homophobic (and yes, I realize that "African" is so broad a category as to be somewhat meaningless.) I have this feeling that this extreme homophobia is something that came mostly from the former colonial powers. Those powers have since become very enlightened on this issue.

It is therefore rather ironic that the same people who complain about the legacy of colonialism nevertheless take brutal measures to enforce 19th century British values.
