Popular media personality, Dotun has questioned those who condemn engaged couples who choose to be celibate until marriage.
Since Nollywood actor Alexx Ekubo’s ex-fiancee, Fancy revealed that he never got intimate with her for the five years they dated, there has been a debate online about engaging in sexual activities before marriage.

Weighing in on the debate, OAP Dotun, in a series of tweets, asked why the moral principles our parents and the Bible taught us are suddenly viewed as “bad.”

What I am simply saying is, they said “dont 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?” He wrote in part.
