Nollywood actor, IK Ogbonna, weighs in on the controversy surrounding men who wear earrings. The actor is of the opinion that there is nothing wrong with men wearing earrings or getting tattoos as such actions do not define anyone.
Speaking in an interview with Vanguard News, the actor insisted that God did not create earrings, yet women wear them.
For this reason, he says that there shouldn’t be an issue when men are seen putting them on.
“Who invented earrings?” he began.
“God didn’t create earrings but girls are wearing earrings. These are things that people created over time and then it became a norm and then people accepted it.
“So someone shouldn’t just look at you and say Oh you’re a man, you shouldn’t wear earring.
“If you feel comfortable wearing earring, wear earring and worship God.
“If you feel comfortable having a tattoo, have a tattoo and worship God.
“There are people that don’t have tattoos on their body but they preach hate, they preach lots of hate.
“So let people focus more on major primary issues instead, and not IK Ogbonna’s tattoos and earrings.
“I’m going to keep my tattoos and earrings for as long as possible.
“I might even give my son an earring to wear.”
Ogbonna, who is married to Columbian beauty, Sonia Morales, is known for his high fashion taste.
This has undoubtedly made him one of the most attractive actors in Nollywood.
