Former Machachari actor Ian Nene alias Almasi has addressed the sensitive topic of sexuality. Ian has been a source of debate with some terming him as ‘gay’.
This is because of his bold and brazen fashion statements which many many Kenyans find puzzling based on their conservative upbringing.
Speaking about the topic during an interactive session with his fans on Instagram, Ian was asked by a fan what his opinion on sexuality is and here is his response.
My personal opinion is as long as you are not harming anyone and as long as you are doing your own thing. As long as you are expressing yourself in proper, clean fashion then all is good.
Ian says that he does not like being put in a box when it comes to his sexuality.
I don’t like being put in a box and boxes don’t work for me.The only thing I can say about myself is that I am a servant of the people.
Ian further explained that at times, people want to read too much into his fashion statements.
There is no box you can put me in. I love and I love and I love in a proper and respectful way. I do not love in a sexual way I love in a mood of service and that is something I have come to learn about my spiritual life.
That is also how I associate with others and that’s how I live my everyday life and that is how I try to build relationships.
In conclusion, Ian says,
I am not just out here to sexually please myself. This is because I have learnt that its also temporary and that you can try so hard to please yourself in that kind of passion but it leads you nowhere.
