Ian Nene aka Almasi on smoking bhang and homosexual behavior

Former Machachari actor Ian Nene popularly known as Almasi caused a stir when photos of him smoking weed and posing like a homosexual man went viral.

Homophobes taunted Nene on social media when he posted photos of him on Instagram posing with a flower on his head like a woman.

Nene, an actor-cum-model, however has no regret over his controversial gay photos. He told Word Is that he wanted to create emotion by expressing himself the way he wants.

He also explained that he doesn’t give a damn about what people think of him because critics will always judge him for whatever reason.

“I feel like with every picture I post on social media, I want to create an emotion and I have my own reasons for it regardless. Me putting on a flower is like it’s like a liberation of art. We are getting to a place where expressions vary and you can use any form of expression that you want as an individual. So that was just me and I worked with really good photographers to see the different aesthetics I can do. People are quick to judge and the fact that I don’t respond, they will say anything. I don’t feel like I am entitled to talk about my personal life with anyone, so whatever people say, I just allow it. Because at the end of the day, they will judge me regardless. Even if I correct them and tell them who I am, it’s not going to change anything. People I work with know who I am. I don’t care what the rest say,” Ian Nene said.

On smoking weed, Nene explained that the photos were taken during a photo shoot and that smoking marijuana wasn’t his lifestyle.

“We were invited to an event to make it have a particular look. People were quick to judge, thinking that’s my lifestyle. That’s not my lifestyle, I do my own things the way I like. What people said or saw doesn’t define my life!”
