The son of renowned journalist Louis Otieno is proving to be a very bold person. 

Silas Miami, who lives in South Africa shared a photo he took on his 24th birthday, and in his birthday suit. 

Silas described the picture as one that had his DM's full after he shared it. 

"On my 24th Birthday, I took Moira Rose's advice. And she was right. I'll look back at these self-portraits fondly," he wrote on his Twitter page.

The son of the renowned journalist is openly gay and fights for the rights of the LGBTQ community. 

His sexual orientation, he says, is the reason why he fell out with his parents after his mum was abusive to him. 

Recently, Silas shared that his mom is seriously ill, but won't visit her because she was not kind to him. 

"I'm told my abusive mother is very unwell. But this information was relayed to me by a third party because she is too proud to reach out herself.

"Even at death's door, she refuses to swallow it and apologize. That is what narcissism looks like. Sending thoughts and prayers," Silas Miami said.
