HONE7, an American singer and songwriter has debunked rumors that the purpose of her arrival in Ghana was simply to work with the LGBT Community for their rights to be accepted.
Defending herself on Kastle FM’s Amansan Krakye, she said, “I don’t believe that everyone is here to support LGBTQ+ rights in Ghana you know I believe personally I came to Ghana because of the music.”
“The power that the producers and musicians have here is just amazing in Afrobeats is scattered all over the country honestly,” she continued.
She added that although it is not on her agenda, it is true that other international or American Artistes come to Ghana for the purpose of advocating for LGBTQ+ rights.
“Some international or American artistes do come here to support the LGBTQ+ rights behind the scenes but I don’t have that agenda so I can’t really speak on the issue,” she ended.
Following the recent backlash against the gays in the country, international stars such as Idris Elba, Naomi Campbell and the Vogue editor-in-chief, Edward Enninful, have signed an open letter in in solidarity with Ghana’s LGBTQ+ community.
