CNN’S RICHARD QUEST GETS HERO’S WELCOME IN NIGERIA
CNN International’s anchor and reporter Richard Quest is back in Nigeria after 10 years, to shoot for an episode of his show “Quest Means Business”, on Monday April 24.
Richard Quest tweeted saying “Good Morning #lagos #nigeria. Here for a week of filming and doing Quest Means Business. Great being back in Africa.”
Quest had started out his Lagos trip with an early morning interview at Nigeria Info FM on the “Morning Crossfire” show with Tolu and Onome.
The following day, Richard Quest visited Oshodi where he was spotted filming on the pedestrian bridge and taking pictures with pedestrians, including LAWMA workers.
The veteran journalist also visited the Nike Art gallery where he had an interview with the founder of the gallery, Nike Davies-Okundaye, with Quest clad in full traditional Yoruba agbada outfit.
Richard Quest also had an interview with media mogul Mo Abudu the same day.
On the other hand, UK-based Nigerian gay rights activist Bisi Alimi has called Nigerians hypocrites for giving the openly gay Richard Quest a hero’s welcome.
Taking to his Instagram to vent, Bisi Alimi puts up a post that says “Richard Quest is in Nigeria and getting hero’s welcome. Lest we forget, he is a man living openly as gay, but we do to OUR LGBT? Either kill them or imprison them. Shame on you hypocrites.”
Bisi Alimi is the first Nigerian to come out of the closet on TV.
