Uju Anya, a Nigerian-born American professor, has disclosed that her father was convoluted, difficult, and irredeemably patriarchal.
Anya, who has been in the news over her outburst following the death of renowned monarch Queen Elizabeth II, two years ago, shared throwback pictures from her childhood saying that despite being a complicated man, her father was a ‘verifiably hot dude.’
On January 5, 2020, she tweeted, “Going through old pics to find Ujubaby had a deep nostalgia. Especially coming across these reminding me that my dad— while complicated, challenging and irredeemably patriarchal— was also a verifiably hot dude.
“And if you’re wondering how the soup got made, Nwanyi Ocha was also a stunner,” she wrote.
Nigerians have expressed varied reactions after learning about the professor’s sexuality.
Many people in the South-East chastised the academics for identifying with the Igbos despite her admittance to being a lesbian.
The lecturer who tried to identify with her Nigerian heritage was seeking acceptance from Nigeria despite the country’s strict stance against same-sex affairs.
