In a beautiful display of irony, the son of a homophobic politician in Nigeria has come as gay in a bold Instagram post.

Bolu Okupe, is the son of Dr Doyin Okupe, a former presidential aid and outspoken homophobe, who decided that that he was not going to follow in his father’s footsteps.

Bolu, wearing a pair of rainbow shorts, wrote: “Yes, I’m Gay AF” on his social media.

And his awful father was quick to reject his son’s sexuality via Twitter.

One user commented on Bolu’s post claiming he would be a “corpse” if he still resided in Kenya (he now works as a fitness instructor in Paris).

But Bolu was having none of it.

“Your whole mentality is tragic. I feel sorry for you,” he wrote.

“You are delusional, I hope one day you will educate yourself. If not, I don’t care – you will die ignorant and on the wrong side of history.”

now that’s a religion we can get behind… Amen!
