Sunday, June 21, 2020 – Veteran media personality, Louis Otieno’s only son, Silas Miami, has announced that he’s gay.
In a post on social media, Miami revealed that he’s been married to his Mzungu lover for one year and they are based in South Africa.
Miami, who is a renowned filmmaker and photographer, said that he’s aware his post will set tongues wagging but he was ready for it all.
He shared loved up photos with the guy called Patrick Miami (he took his last name) and wrote:
“I met and married someone just under a year ago.”
“He’s got all the things: Kindness, courage, honesty, etc. While all this is all fine and great, that’s not why I married him,”
“In fact, neither of us believed in marriage.”
“We still don’t. But after months of us looking at options for what companionship would look like, especially seeing as travel isn’t exactly easy for us, we settled on going for it.”
“We maintain an ethically polyamorous situation because monogamy gives us both migraines.”
“That being said, Patrick Miami (yes, he took my name) is my primary life partner and I’m proud to be his.”
In a past interview, Miami, who is behind the creation of popular local films such as Supa Modo and Lusala., stated that he had no relationship with his father.
“My mother was technically a single mother.”
“I had no relationship with my father.”
“He was the man we watched on TV.”
“However, we met later on in life when he fell sick and I was helping with the bill.”
“We have a cordial relationship. Although we do not talk, I wish him well and he does the same for me.”
“I got to the point where I realised that parents too are only human and a product of what they have seen in life. I have come to recognise my father’s failures, but also acknowledge his humanity,” Miami told a local media house.
