Ghanaian rapper, Emmanuel Botchwey, popularly known as Kwaw Kesse has strongly kicked against the possible legalization of homosexuality in the country.
Earlier in an interview with Aljazeera, President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo indicated that homosexuality isn’t a pressing issue in the country hence the reason it hasn’t been legalized yet.
According to him, if pressure groups and activists continue to ‘disturb’ the peace then, it may be bound to happen in the future.
“I grew up in England; I went to school as a young boy in England and I grew up at a time in England when homosexuality was banned there, it was illegal and I lived in the period when British politicians thought it was anathema to think about changing the law and suddenly the activities of individuals, of groups, a certain awareness, a certain development grew and grew and grew stronger and it forced a change in law. I believe those are the same processes that will bring about changes in our situation.”
The president, however, pointed out that: “At the moment, I don’t feel and I don’t see that in Ghana, there is that strong current of opinion that will say: ‘This is something that we need even deal with’. It’s not, so far, a matter which is on the agenda.”
But Kwaw Kesse on his Twitter account wondered why President Akufo-Addo wont lead a campaign for the legalization of marijuana in Ghana and rather said homosexuality is bound to happen.
Nonetheless, Abodam added that homosexuality shouldn’t be entertained in the country.
“It’s a moral wrong for a man to sleep with a fellow man. Even animals don’t do such. Have they finished legalizing marijuana…?” he queried.
However, some of the Ghanaian musicians such as Yaa Pono and Wanlov also disclosed their views on the homosexuality issues.
