Ghanaian comedian, Benson Nana Yaw Oduro Boateng, known in showbiz as Funny Face, has blasted a radio presenter live on air for calling him gay.
Funny Face lost his cool when Nana Romeo of Accra FM asked him to clarify the rumour of he being Emmanuel Sheyi Adebayor’s gay partner.
“I want you to clear the speculation about you, People are saying Adebayor was your gay partner, how true is that? Have you heard it before?” the presenter asked Funny Face.
He replied, “Never, never, never. It is never true and it will never be true. Adebayor has a wife, has a daughter…has a big family…so never.”
“In fact, the truth be say, you see if you bi radio presenter wey you dey ask this funny questions eeer, the truth be say, Romeo you bi my guy but I go tell you. you no dey think small. I swear this is on record. We study human being life. You are into showbiz; people say things to tarnish peoples image so for you to even ask that guy the same question sef…It has left small,” Funny Face fumed.
However, Nana Romeo stood by his stance of making him [Funny Face] clear the air for the sake of his listeners and people out there who might have heard about this wild rumour.
Funny Face corroborated that as a public figure, people would spread rumours about him but some things are not worth discussing on the radio.
