NIGERIAN COMEDIAN and actor Benjamin Nwachukwu – also known as Shuga Shaa – has revealed his relationship with a sex doll named Tonto Shaa and expressed plans to marry the doll.
According to BBC, Shuga Shaa has been spotted going to the cinema and driving around with her on some occasions, resulting in a mixed reaction from fans with many concerned for the actor, expressing their disappointment and disgust. Some even describing him as a “mad man” and a “psychopath”.
Others have put it all down to humour, and a potential stunt.
Despite the criticism, Shuga Shaa has hit out at naysayers, commenting: “Tonto was produced by a human like you and I. There is no spirit in her.”
He told BBC Igbo that his mother is aware of his relationship with Tonto Shaa and doesn’t mind at all and went as far as to share plans to walk down the aisle with the man-made doll.
“Tonto Shaa is a lady and should be treated as such. She gives me peace of mind, zero drama, there is no chance of suffering a heartbreak from her.”
The pampered doll sports a wig, polished finger nails and wears jewellery and expensive perfumes – and now has her own car.
Relationships between humans and sex dolls aren’t a completely new phenomena – in Japan the unlikely coupling has increased substantially.
Over 2,000 dolls – with removable heads – are sold in Japan each year, and in 2017, a new report suggested over 27% of millennials would say they’d date a robot.
