Gay marriage is still very much illegal in Nigeria, and can attract very solid 14 years imprisonment. Notwithstanding, this particular couple are still going for it, consequences be d*mned. Yesterday, Michell posted on his/her status that (s)he asked his/her girlfriend to marry him/her, and the girlfriend agreed.
I'm not very sure about the gender because although Michell looks very much female, and has a female name, her facebook profile suggests (s)he identifies as male.
This is what Nigerians had to say about this unconventional engagement.
She has a message for the haters though
