The simmering disputes concerning Ghana’s attitude on different sexual orientations, according to Ghanaian actor, musician, and comedian Kwadwo Nkansah, better known as LilWin, is a misguided focus.
LilWin told presenter Sarah Brefo on the Ultimate Branch on Ultimate 106.9fm in Kumasi that he will only be concerned about LGBTQI+ issues if the roads to his birthplace and other key routes in Ghana are fixed.
“I will seek an opinion on LGBTQI or whatever they call it if the roads to my hometown, Meduma Atimatim, are repaired; if the Kumasi-Accra road is dualized; if the Atonsu road is tarred.” He was adamant.
The comedian-turned-footballer also stated that he will not sleep until the country’s teeming young are free of poverty and unemployment.
“Only when I see that there are enough employment for all of Ghana’s kids and that thievery and crime have decreased will I speak about the LGBTQI,” LilWin explained.
Ghana has gained international attention as a result of a private member’s bill on Proper Human Sexual Rights And Ghanaian Family Values, which is now being debated in parliament.
The anti-LGBTQI+ Bill seeks unambiguous legal punishments against the practice and advocacy for people of various sexual orientations, as well as assistance in rehabilitating them in accordance with Ghana’s diverse cultural and religious traditions.
