Nigerian on-air personality, Do2dtun dropped his two cents on the ongoing controversy between ex-lovers, Fancy Achulonu and Alex Ekubo, as well as the purported 5-year celibacy.
Fancy Acholonu earlier disclosed that Alex refused to get intimate with her although their five-year relationship, claiming religious convictions as the rationale, whilst cheating with other women.
Fancy’s revelation triggered an online debate While many social media users berated the actor’s decision to practice celibacy, others noted that abstaining from intercourse throughout a five-year relationship shows he’s morally upright.
Weighing in on the debate, OAP Dotun, in a series of tweets questioned why celibacy which was once viewed as a moral and religious requirement, turned into a criminal offense.
He wrote: “The last I checked, sex before marriage was discouraged to make relationships sacred, resolute & Godly. When did it become wrong not to have it before marriage? Haven’t you all seen now that everything we considered bad is now good and what was seen as good is now bad?”
“What I am simply saying is, they said “don’t have sex before marriage because it’s a sin” The same way they said being a virgin before marriage is a good thing. Counselors, The Bible, our parents told us. So why are these things now seen as bad when you don’t do them?”
Meanwhile, Media personality, Daddy Freeze had earlier queried why Alex and Fancy would be in a committed relationship for years and not have sexual intercourse.
Backing himself with scriptures, Daddy Freeze stressed that it isn’t immorality for betrothed couple to have sex. Freeze is indirectly clamouring for sex among engaged couples.
“How can you be in a committed relationship for 5 years and not have intercourse? The scriptural punishment for a man having intercourse with a virgin is that he must marry her. (Exodus 22:16).
The church concept of fornication was based on a ministration by King James, of the Greek word ‘nopveia’. Which meant sexual immorality. An engaged or betrothed couple having sex was not considered immorality”.
