Popular United Kingdom-based Nigerian ga.y and LGBT rights activist, Bisi Alimi, has finally wedded his British lover, Anthony.
The two g.ay lovers, who have been dating for some years, got married on Saturday in England.
Alimi, who expressed his excitement on social media, said, “In the presence of friends and family from around the world, Anthony and I will say ‘I Do’. But we remember places in the world where love is (a) crime.”
The rights activist posted the message on his Twitter handle on Saturday, displaying a picture of him and Anthony.
“When your wife has arrived for your wedding, then you know the party is about to start. Bring it on,” he wrote on his Facebook post on Friday.
“Congratulations to @bisialimi, g.ay rights activist, public speaker, blog writer & HIV/LGBT advocate, on his marriage to Anthony! #LoveWins,” one Kevin Maxwell wrote in reply to Alimi’s tweet.
Last month, Alimi sparked social media buzz when he revealed that he was thinking about starting a church.
